We really enjoyed our visit here. We loved the fact that you could also feed some of the animals. Also liked the windows to see the seals which were lower down so the children could see without having to be carried all of the time....More

This was a lovely place to take the kids we all really enjoyed it and it was reasonable priced and the gift shop was cheaper than I expected. Great day out.

We have visited the seal sanctuary a couple of times before. The animals there are amazing. The seals are full of character- we spent at least 20 minutes laughing at them splashing and bouncing about. The otters were also adorable and their enclosure looked fantastic....More

I spent about an hour there because it was cold. If the weather was warmer, I would have spent a couple of hours.
