Great to see that this place is helping local young seals back into the wild but go in mind knowing that the place is small and doesn't take long to look around. Nice for an hour with young children.More

Very good day out with the kids and interesting to hear the work they do with rescuing the seals. Great variety of animals/fish throughout the park. Impressed with the seal hospital. Kids loved feeding the animals. Would definitely recommend.

Took my mum and daughter for a visit last summer. Lots to see and get involved in, animals are clearly very well cared for, great morning out for all 3 generations! Not massive but easily passes a morning/afternoon.
