Weymouth SEALIFE Adventure Park
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The Sea Life centre is home to over 1000 species, including penguins, seals, otters, and less playful creatures like crocodiles. There are separate habitat areas including the Shark Reef, Rainforest environment, and rockpools. Children will enjoy daily feeding sessions and educational talks where you can learn about different species and see them close up.
Other popular species to see include sharks, lobsters, dogfish, sea turtles, octopi, moray eels, stingrays, jellyfish, clownfish, and the unusual axolotl. See the Cownose rays in Ray Lagoon, and a specially themed South American rainforest habitat with Poison Dart Frogs and a floor to ceiling tank housing Giant Gourami, catfish, and Plecostomus.
A more recent addition to the Adventure Park is the Sea Life Tower, a 53-metre high tower offering panoramic views over Weymouth Bay and the surrounding coastline. The tower, dubbed Jurassic Skyline, is located away from the main Park at Old Harbour North.
The Sea Life centre has a special conservation area where they look after species like turtles. The Park also sponsors conservation centres abroad, such as a sea turtle rescue centre on the Grek island of Zakynthos. The public is invited to get involved in conservation efforts and learn about marine conservation and environmental concerns.
As well as the chance to see marine creatures at close hand, the Park offers amusement rides and activities like mini-golf.
Parking is at the Lodmoor Country Park for the Sea Life Park and Old Harbour North for the Jurassic Skyline tower.
