Weymouth Sea Life Park is proud to be one of five hosts of the world's first underwater photography exhibition!
'Celebrations of the Sea' was launched at Brighton Sea Life Centre on the 21st October and aims to honour the maritime industry's unsung heroes. From the fishermen who brave the UK's stormiest seas and traditional lobster pot makers who keep precious fishing traditions alive, to our most talented celebrity chefs who transform fish into some of the nation's favourite dishes - all are celebrated in this unique and special collection of photographs. The photographs will be touring Sealife Centres around the UK as an exhibition, where the images will live alongside marine life in their tanks.
Born out of a partnership between national maritime charity the Shipwrecked Mariner' Society and renowned underwater photographer and TV Producer Kate Westaway, the project is a celebration of those hardworking individuals who work in and around the sea.
To see all the images please visit Weymouth Sea Life Park between -
- 15th November - 21st November
Entry is free to people who have purchased a ticket to visit the Park.
The exhibitions will also be hosted at the following sea life centres as follows:
- 22nd November - 28th November; Birmingham
- 29th November - 5th December; Blackpool
- 6th December - 12th December; Scarborough
