“Seals were cute, setting was beautiful”
Reviewed January 29, 2012

We went out of season so it was really quiet which suited us just fine. The talk from staff about the care the seals receive was informative if not a little too rehearsed, could have done with a little more lighthearted add-lib.
Great watching the seals feeding time and seeing the cute penguins.
There is a nice little cafe with outside seating and amazing views over the surrounding countryside and conservation area. It was worth going just for the scenery.
Would recommend at least one trip here if you are in the area.

“Great for young kids”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

We went here a while ago with young kids (6 and 8) and they thoroughly enjoyed it. But it's not a full day's entertainment - probably a couple of hours and you'll want to be moving on. Definitely worth seeing though.

“What's not to like?”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

They've got lots of seals - they save seals in distress - it's just wonderful.
