SCHOOL TRIPS

Combining active, hands-on learning with fascinating educational talks and an opportunity to have an up close and personal view into our amazing aquatic world, a visit to Hunstanton SEA LIFE Sanctuary is an educational experience like no other.

We have something fun and inspirational for all ages!

Here at SEA LIFE Hunstanton we offer a truly unique alternative for your school trip whilst fitting perfectly with the KS1 and KS2 curriculum! We also welcome Secondary school groups & Language Schools.

We make sure your pupils get up-close to the amazing creatures in our themed displays, ranging from native rivers and lakes to the deep ocean. After all, the more they see the more they'll learn.

Your class will come face-to-fin with a variety of different Sharks, learn to waddle with our Penguin colony of Humboldt Penguins and they'll be able to follow the journey of rehabilitating Seals in Norfolk's Only Seal Rescue Centre & Hospital open to visitors.

You are free to attend our regular talk and feeding demonstrations, this includes presentations of our spectacular ocean display, Seal's, native ray & sharks and get hands-on at our interactive rock pool experience, where you can find out some amazing facts from a expert from the SEA LIFE team and touch starfish, crab's and learn so much more!
