Sea Life Adventure


Eastern Esplanade,


Not only can your students learn about the fascinating world that lies in our planet's oceans, but you can use our curriculum based school packs to help make learning maths, science and other subjects much more fun.

Booking an educational visit to Sea Life Adventure is simple!
Call the customer services team on 01702 442211 to check availability and book your visit. You will need to have the following details to hand: Date(s) of visit, name of school and contact info inc. phone and email, contact name (head teacher), number of children and adults, lunch times (subject to availability).

Teacher Preview Visits
In order to make the most of your visit we recommend you take advantage of our free teacher preview visits to familiarise yourself with the exhibits and our facilities. Bring the slip from your confirmation letter and present it at admissions to gain access to the aquarium.

Bags and belongings can be stored, but this is subject to availability.

For schools wishing to bypass the gift shop, we can arrange goodie bags - please order before your visit.

Ice Cream and Rock Offer
You can now buy vouchers for a stick of rock and an ice cream when you book. It's a great way for your children to have these without having to carry money.

Our fully knowledgeable team are available to discuss the most appropriate learning sessions for special needs groups. We can modify most sessions to meet individual requirements.
To make a provisional booking please phone: 01702 442211.
