Ultimate Animal Experience

An experience like no other

Dive into an unforgettable adventure with our Ultimate Animal Experience, where you'll get up close and personal with some of the ocean's most fascinating creatures.

Swim with and meet with the seals, feed the penguins, and get an exclusive look at our seal and penguin back of house areas.

The 3-hour experience will be guided by one of SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast’s marine specialists, who will offer fascinating insights on animal behaviour, husbandry, and dedicated conservation efforts.  This experience will be limited to 2 people so will be a unique opportunity to deep dive into the world of these amazing marine creatures.

Seal Swim: Jump in with our playful seals during a Seal Swim as you experience the thrill of swimming alongside these graceful marine mammals. Feel the rush of excitement as you witness their agility and curiosity up close. *Please note that you might be joined by other guests for this part of the experience. 

Penguin Encounter: Get ready to meet our charming little blue penguins during a Penguin Encounter and engage in a unique hand-feeding experience. Watch in awe as these adorable creatures come as close as it gets and interact with you. *Please note that you might be joined by other guests for this part of the experience.
