Swim with the Sea Lions


Our Swim with the Sea Lions experiences begin in May and end at the end of September, this is to allow for suitable weather – the Sea Lion pool can get pretty cold outside of the summer months!

The experience starts with watching the main Sea Lion Display at 12:30pm and then at 1:00pm you will be invited into the Sea Lion enclosure for preparation. Minimum age is 10 Years. Please call for more information on this.

Your experience consists of the following :
• A fifteen minute Health and Safety (see disclaimer)
• 20 minutes for changing (shower area provided, wet suits supplied on request )
• 20 minutes in the water with Morgan the Sea Lion.
• 20 minutes for Shower and Change
• A free photograph.
• Free admission into the park.


Price Includes FREE Admission to the park

There is a maximum of five swimmers per day – the Sea Lion swimmers all go in as a group after the 12:30pm Show. This is to prevent undue stress on the Sea Lion and their Trainers! As stated previously, if you do not have a wet suit one can be provided for you at no extra cost. Towels are also provided for you on request. Please ensure that you notify us when you make your booking if you need wet suits.

The Sea Lion Experience costs just £99.50. Please call in advance to pre book your swim by calling us on 01271 882486. Full payment is required at the time of booking. Date changes will be accommodated where possible but 100% cancellation charges apply.

An optional choice of obtaining a disc of high resolution Digital photos for £25 is available

If you prefer not to get wet or are too young to swim with our Sea Lions, why not book a place on our Sea Lion Meet and Greet experience. You’ll spend up to half an hour behind the scenes helping to train and generally getting to know our Sea Lions personally. ONLY £35 per person.

Please note that the final decision for the experience to go ahead will be made on the day, due to the unpredictability of animal behaviour and their welfare and the weather conditions.
