SEA LIFE Weymouth Exhibits and Attractions
Many of the creatures at SEA LIFE Weymouth are on the endangered list, have been rescued and cannot be released into the wild or have been born and bred as part of their conservation projects. It is a great day out for the whole family. Kids will love feeding times and getting to know all of the fascinating rescued residents. Below is a rundown of whats on offer at SEA LIFE Weymouth.
Start your visit by heading to Harbourside, home to native species to the UK. If you are lucky, you may be able to see a newborn creature hatch. You will learn all about the Undulate Ray Breeding programme. This exhibit includes the work of the Community Seagrass Initiative Project, explaining the importance of seagrass habitats and how the Community Seagrass Initiative Project is helping protect wild seagrass beds.
Meet the resident Terrapins and Freshwater Turtles at Turtle Sanctuary.
Visit the mysterious and graceful world of stingrays. Meet the beautiful Cownose Rays as they glide along the seabed. Stingrays get their name from the stinging barb at the base of their tail. When they feel threatened Stingrays can whip up their tail to puncture their pursuer with their spiny, venomous barb. Once they have done this it takes a while for a new one to grow back, so they only use it as a last resort.
Rainforest is a jungle-themed area filled with exciting walkthroughs, but beware, not all the creatures here are friendly. In the depths of the rainforest, you will meet, Piranha, Poison Dart Frogs, Dragonfish and Archerfish.
View Seahorses and Pipefish up close at SEA LIFE Weymouth. Seahorses and Pipefish are a curious group of creatures that all belong to the Syngnathidae family. As members of the same family, they share some interesting traits.
At the Rockpool exhibit, you will find creatures native to the UK including starfish, shore crabs, anemones and sea urchins. For some extra fun, make your way over the bridge at the back and wait for the tide to wash in.
Visit Shipwreck for colourful creatures with lots of character. The Shipwreck exhibit includes a Coral Reef, one of the most beautiful and important habitats on Earth. Coral Reefs cover less than 1% of the ocean floor, yet over 25% (that’s 1 quarter) of marine species depend on this habitat in some way for survival.
The Coral itself might look like rock or plant but it is actually a type of animal, from the same family as Jellyfish and Sea Anemones. Corals are made up of millions of individual polyps all growing on top of each other. Each of these polyps lives within a shell but sticks out little stinging tentacles to catch plankton in the current. Coral polyps share their shell with algae which provides them with most of their food using photosynthesis. In exchange, the Coral offers the algae a safe house so they both get a good deal.
Look out for the Clownfish swimming amongst the Coral, one of the ocean’s best known and loved fish.
Meet the comical Humboldt Penguins on Penguin Beach at SEA LIFE Weymouth. Don’t miss the Penguin Talk and Feed to learn more about the threats they face in the wild and what you can do to help.
The walk-through Ocean Tunnel gives visitors the opportunity to experience life under the sea without getting wet. Watch sharks and rays gliding effortlessly through the tropical ocean tunnel, surrounded by hundreds of colourful ocean fish. Don’t miss the daily feed when sea turtles, sharks, moray eels, tropical fish and stingrays tuck into their lunch.
Caribbean Cove Playground
Caribbean Cove is a fantastic children’s adventure playground. Children can burn off their energy as they climb aboard the Caribbean Cove Galleon and sail away to the seven seas on a magical adventure. Watch as they climb to the top of the lookout point to spot rays, jellyfish and turtles swimming around Caribbean Cove.
Trek through Calypso Heights, which consists of nine remarkable towers and five fun slides. Children can get up close and personal with jaws and venture through Caribbean Cove’s very own shark tunnel. Visit the Official Webpage to learn more.
