How the day works

We will send all of your wristbands out to you before the date of your visit, allowing for a super speedy and smooth entry into the zooquarium with minimal waiting.

The aquarium takes about an hour to walk around and you are welcome to join any talks and feeds that occur throughout the day, if available. The amount of time you stay is up to you. Many schools visit us in the morning, take advantage of the neighbouring beach for activities and visit us again before the coach picks them up.

Risk Assessment

We conduct our own risk assessments and provide guidance for teachers. We encourage teachers to make a preview visit before bringing a group to conduct their own Risk Assessment, which we will happily provide free entry for. Further information is available on request.

Teacher preview visits

In order to make the most of your school visit we recommend that you take advantage of one of our free teacher preview visits to familiarise yourself with the exhibits and our facilities. Visit the customer services desk and notify them that you are doing a teacher preview visit to gain access to the aquarium and a run through of how your booking will run on the day.

(Please note: School I.D. must be shown and the teacher attending the preview visit. Limited to 1 per class. This teacher must attend on the day of your visit)

The gift Shop Area

A wide variety of gifts are available from our gift shop, with items from £1.00 upwards (subject to availability).

To remove the added stress of supervising a class of children through the gift shop we offer a ready-made gift bag service. You can either choose the contents during your pre visit, over the phone or on the day of your visit. Prices for this will vary depending upon availability, and we will be happy to assist in selecting appropriate items for your group.  We also have a Rock and Ice cream offer for £2.00 per child, each child will receive a small ice cream and small rock. We also have an offer for an individual ice creams for just £1.50 each. These must be paid for prior to the date of your visit, ideally when making payment with the rest of the trip.

Access for all

The Sealife Adventure building is designed to provide access for all. Should you need a hand at any point on your visit, please ask a member of staff, recognisable by their blue uniform. The toilets are situated by the admissions and gift shop.
