The Seashore Safaris are free of charge but must be pre-booked at our Admissions - final booking is 30 minutes before the start time.

Max. 20 people per safari. All children must be supervised by adults.

About 10 minutes before start time meet our aquarist down at the bottom of our drive. If you have wellies or waterproofs it's advisable to wear them!

Our baby cuttlefish are 2 months old today! How they've grown... They're now about an inch long and growing fast - next summer they'll already be adults!


Wondering what Menai the Turtle is up to these days? Here she is basking in the sun at the Centro de Recuperación de Fauna Silvestre de Tafira in Gran Canaria!

We are still waiting for her satellite tag before she's released, also still requesting anyone who can help to source a boat to take her from the Canary Islands south in the Atlantic close to the equator, so if you're able to help please do get in touch!
