NEW! World Class Rescue Facility

Our new state-of-the-art marine rescue facility is now open following £multi-million investment and extensive remodelling.

This area has been carefully designed and constructed to emulate a natural habitat that marine mammals are accustomed to. From temperature and smell to sound and touch, each of the senses have been truly merged to create a real ecosystem.

With multiple touch points and observation decks from land and sea, the live working rescue facility serves a dual purpose in also becoming a tactile viewing encounter where visitors can be educated and immerse themselves in the underwater world.

Creating a new facility

 

This is a world class rescue facility and a large team of specialists were needed to help support the entire project.

 

  • 72,000 liters of water was needed to fill the tank
  • Over 2,100 man hours have gone in to creating the new facility to date
  • 8 meters of steel was hoisted into the facility directly from outside
  • It took 7 days to drill the hole for the new tank
  • A team of builders have been on site 7 days a week/15 hours a day
  • 3 design teams worked on all aspects of the facility including theming and graphics
  • 8km of cabling and 1.5 miles of pipework has been fed through the entire facility

Come and say hello!
