Seals currently not viewable

We will be re-sealing the Great Southern Ocean pools during May and June to ensure the exhibit is at the best possible standard. This means all seal and penguin viewing areas will be closed for the duration of the works. But don’t be worry, the Seal Show will still be on daily and access is available to the lower Entrance and Sky Safari via the elevator and stairs.
