Watch otters frolic at the otter oasis, enjoy the fantastic penguin beach encounter, spot the terrifying crocodiles on crocodile rock, look out for friendly sea turtles or, if you’re feeling brave, why not enter the visual interactive dive cage to see the sharks in a different way?

There are talks and feeding times throughout the day, which will tell you more about your favourite aquatic animal and lots of conservation projects to learn about.
