Staff are enthusiastic about the animals, which are treated well, exercised properly, and prepared for release back into the ocean (the seals, that is, not the goats).

This is a little gem of a place. Plenty to see and lots to keep little ones amused. Really enjoyed the seal talk, and will be back for more!

Made it in time for the 3pm feeding (there is also an 11.30am feeding). Presenter was lovely and really knowledgable considering it was her first week. Spent about 1 hour and half here.
