NEW FOR 2018: PENGUIN BEACH

Get your Waddle on and Discover the Penguin Trail!

Experience our NEW enlarged Penguin Enclosure and get close encounters with our resident Humboldt Penguins this Easter!

Would you like to meet the most adorable creatures ever?

Our colony of Humbolt Penguins are looking forward to showing you their new home and teaching you how to waddle!

Over the winter period, the original Hunstanton penguin colony went on a short winter holiday whilst their old enclosure underwent an incredible transformation. Now you will be able to get closer to these captivating birds as you explore the penguin trail and watch them enjoy their new deep-dive pool, waterfall and beach. 

In 2017 penguin couple Charlie & Jerome successfully reared the sanctuary's first ever penguin chick called 'Fluffy'. The team hopes enlarging the colony will help encourage further breeding and improve the genetic biodiversity of the colony, which will in turn help boost the SEA LIFE Captive Breeding Program.

Watch the moment the penguins arrive into their new enclosure!
