The Greatest Zooquarium experience!

Welcome to Sealife Adventure in Southend-On-Sea, the UK’s premier Zooquarium!

You can explore so much more here than in a regular aquarium. Here, you can journey around each of our ocean zones and immerse yourself in the wonders of life on planet Earth, experiencing everything from the mysteries of our oceans to the diverse beauty of our jungles and deserts. You’ll meet famous sea dwellers, discover weird and wonderful creatures of the deep, and get to know plenty of land-loving animals, too, including our cheeky monkeys, our curious meerkats and our waddling-wonderful Humboldt Penguins.


Visit Sealife Adventure Zooquarium in the City of Southend, and you’ll soon broaden your knowledge on a wide variety of aquatic species.

Every one of the exhibitions at our Zooquarium has something different to offer. You’ll spend hours spotting your favourite species – but best of all, you’ll soon be gazing in awe at fascinating inhabitants you never even knew existed!

Interactive Talks

Broaden your horizons and knowledge by experiencing some of our amazing interactive talks and feeds.

Our friendly and knowledgeable team will give you unique insights into the everyday adventures of the most majestic creatures around, both on land and at sea!

(Currently only available at weekends, bank holidays and school holidays)

Meet The Penguins Experience

Sealife Adventure gives you the chance to get up close and personal with these flip-tastic friends and feed our penguins in our BRAND NEW experience.

Meet The Meerkats Experience

The range of creatures, along with the well-designed layout, helped the children to build on their understanding of different types of sea creatures and the different habitats they are suited to. Staff were friendly and available to help on the day. We'll definitely be back next year!
