- SEA LIFE, Seal Harbour
Also known as harbour seals, common seals are characteristic of sandflats and estuaries. The Wash of East Anglia is home to the UK’s largest colony, although they are also found on rocky shores in Scotland.
Our resident Common Seals at Weymouth SEA LIFE Adventure Park are fun and friendly creatures and love to target feed with their keeper. They especially enjoy jumping onto the rocks from the water!
