February Half Term is a great time to visit one of Devon's best all weather attractions. Centrally located on Torquay's harbourside, you can walk above and below the waves meeting some of our fantastic resident coastal creatures.

  • Come and meet our playful penguins, cheeky otters, beautiful seals and weird and wonderful sea creatures to name but a few.
  • Take part in our Nearby Nature trail and activities, plus special daily talks, designed to help you learn more about our local coasts and wildlife right on your doorstep.
  • Release your inner animal in our indoor soft play area.
  • Dine with a view at our Terrace Cafe.
  • See animal feeding and learn about some of your favourite species from our keepers, the people who know them best.
