Take the family to the Cornish Seal Sanctuary and learn about its work to ensure the safety and wellbeing of seals around Cornwall’s coastline.
Based in Gweek, commanding panoramic views of the Helford River, the sanctuary is dedicated to seal rescue, rehabilitation and release, as well as raising awareness of how plastic pollution has affected our marine life in Cornwall. It also provides a forever home to animals needing permanent specialist care from the experts.
Meet the rescued seal pups going through rehabilitation during pup season in the winter, before being returned to the wild. See and hear about the resident animals and learn about their stories.
Explore woodland walks with your fourlegged friends, and get a bite at the café.
The Cornish Seal Sanctuary is open all year round (except Christmas Day)
November – March: 11am – 4pm
April – October: 10am – 5pm
The Discovery Cove Playground allows children to learn with play - your little ones can enjoy a variety of activities which are both fun and educational.
