Treat yourself or a loved one to this once-in-a lifetime experience of meeting a playful and cheeky seal close up! The adventure begins with a behind the scenes tour of Seal Fish Kitchen to learn about what they eat and how they are cared for. You will then meet one of the beautiful resident seals one-on-one. Stroke their fur, enjoy a special cuddle and have your photo taken so you can remember your time together (one printed photo included in cost).
