‪We visited the sanctuary as a family of 4 which was good value for money. Although we didn't get to see the pup hospital as there was a queue we did enjoy seeing the sea lions under water, seals and penguins. We took a picnic which we enjoyed on one of many picnic tables that were around the sanctuary. When you visit there is quite a lot of walking but you can get a lift back to the top if you need to. The car park is on a slope so be prepared with your handbrake! All in all a lovely place to visit.‬

‪A nice place to go for a few hours. Our kids enjoyed reading the information and finding out more about the animals, not just seals but penguins and beavers too. My favorite were the sea lions. Special mention for allowing dogs as we wouldn't have been able to go otherwise and the seals actually seemed to enjoy seeing the dogs. There were also dog water bowls around the place which was a nice touch.
The playground is good and facilities such as toilets were clean.
There are keeper talks and feeding sessions which was good because most of the seals were not really doing anything when we went so we got to properly see them when the were fed.

All in all a good visit but just found it very expensive. I know the money goes back into looking after the animals and keeping the sanctuary going so I probably shouldn't grumble but it was rather pricey for a few hours visit (for 2 adult 4 kids) The entry does allow you to visit for a year but as we live on the isle of wight we can't really make use of this. Would be good if there was cheaper option maybe just for a day entry for people like us who know we won't be back within a year.

We probably wouldn't go again because of the price but if you don't mind the cost then do go because it's a great place to see these animals and learn more about them.‬

‪We purchased the breakfast with the seals package and it was absolutely worth every penny. Rachel, our host and guide, was superb and no question or query was too much trouble. We started with a tour of the sanctuary seeing all the rehabilitated seals and penguins before we moved onto feeding the seals their breakfast of mackerel and herring, a truly magical experience. We then continued with the tour, stopping to wonder at two huge sea lions who revelled in the attention by roaring and then falling back to sleep. It was then our turn for breakfast in the cafe and was lovely, consisting of pastries, fruit, yogurt and cereal, as well as hot drinks and fruit juice. Once breakfast was over you are then free to go around the sanctuary for as long as you like. One thing we noticed, and you don’t see it at many attractions, was sun tan lotion dispensers located around the public areas, a superb idea. All in all a wonderful experience.‬

‪There is no better experience than 'one that matters'. The Cornish Seal Sanctuary is a wonderful, worthwhile experience nestled in Gweek. My wife and I took our 10-year young son to his request to visit the seals. Be sure to walk the entire perimeter of the site, and enjoy the woodland walks, and bug hotels, until arriving at the seal homes. The staff were knowledgeable, friendly, and demonstrated a genuine passion for the work that they do. A small, well-stocked gift shop completed the experience, as well as a warm chat with a more seasoned gentleman who worked there. If you like nature, seals, and a worthy cause, this is for you.‬

‪I saw the reviews about the price but I came here with an open mind. We paid £52 for a family of four.
The seals here are wonderful and the kids loved them. However, comparing this to other zoos or wildlife parks, it does seem crazy over-priced compared to the very low volume of animals. Yes the pass lasts 1 year but that does not help us paying tourists. You need to consider that maybe half of the fee is a donation to support their important work. Only then can you justify the cost. It’s not like the park was empty, it wasn’t.
The staff were very friendly and welcoming.‬

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you felt our sanctuary was over-priced. We are a charity and our income is from ticket sales and donations. It costs on average £2000 to rescue, rehabilitate and release one seal. We rescue between 70 and 80 pups every year and, despite some pups having life changing injuries, we have been able to successfully release a vast majority of seals thanks to the dedicated on site Animal Care Team and the help of our local veterinary team and advice of nationwide seal experts. Resident animals only remain with us if they cannot be returned to the wild due to medical issues and we support them with ongoing lifetime care. Our vet bill is approx £3K a month and the animal food bill approx £5K a month. It is only with the support of visitors that we can continue in our work. Even yearly visitors to Cornwall can take advantage of the free return visits over 12 months if the visit is timed right. We're pleased you found our staff to be friendly and welcoming and we do hope you visit again.

‪I’m afraid I did not enjoy the experience as well as others that have reviewed this. I would say that for young children, it is very joyful but we found the experience very over priced. During the summer there is access to the seal hospital but only for a virtual experience so you queue with no idea what you are queuing for. We went through the paddock area and saw a goat. We went to the beaver area and did not see any beavers and the TV was not showing anything. We saw 5 penguins and 6 seals and were able to see them feeding but this was not advertised so it was purely luck.

It was a busy day and the staff provided food admirably but, like everything here, it’s just not quite slick enough to make it worth the price of the entry. Everything is a little tired and we felt very disappointed.‬

I'm sorry to read you thought the seal sanctuary was expensive for what was there. Children under 3 are free. Tickets cost £13.99 for a child, £16.99 for an adult and £15.99 for a senior or a student. We also have a family ticket for £54 (for 2 adults and 2 children). There are lots of vouchers available on the high street which can reduce the entry price. Tickets last a whole year and all the proceeds go towards supporting the many animals we rescue and care for. Ticket holders are welcome to return as many times as they wish in the 12 month period. It costs on average £2000 to rescue, rehabilitate and release one seal. We rescue between 70 and 80 pups every year and, despite some pups having life changing injuries, we have been able to successfully release a vast majority of seals thanks to the dedicated on site Animal Care Team and the help of our local veterinary team and advice of nationwide seal experts. Resident animals only remain with us if they cannot be returned to the wild due to medical issues and we support them with ongoing lifetime care. Pup season runs Sept to March usually so in summer months we run the VR in the hospital which shows rescue to release from a pup's eye view and 'sets the scene' for a visit to our sanctuary. We have many animals here at the sanctuary including 4 common seals, 10 grey seals, 2 sea lions, 8 penguins, 4 goats and 5 beavers. I'm sorry you didn't see all the animals on site but they all have areas they can go to in the shade or out of public view should they wish. We find customers usually spend around 2 - 3 hours with us, attending talks and feeds which we have on all day to hear all the individual stories about the animals that now reside with us, as well as learning about the pups we rescue, rehabilitate and release. We also pride ourselves on the location and, with 42 acres on site, there are lots of lovely picnic spots and walks that you can enjoy. The beaver TV should have been working during your visit and I apologise if this was not the case. I have asked the team to check it. Please consider re-visiting with your tickets which are valid for 12 months to see the video footage missed during your trip to us.

‪Before coming to this attraction, we detected mixed online reviews for this Seal Sanctuary, much of it around the "value for money" aspects of this conservation initiative, relative to what is being delivered as an attraction.

As such, we came with lowered expectations. Firstly, please note that if you are buying a family ticket, the discount vouchers don't apply (person said that family tickets were already discounted). We feel this condition should be more clearly stated in the vouchers.

Secondly, a few reviews also complained that the sanctuary is rather limited in terms of wildlife species. We feel that due to the attraction's focus on seals, one's expectation should not be the breadth of wildlife, but the quality of "face time" and interactions with the animals and their keepers. Here, observing the curiosity, intelligence and movement of the family line of seals and sea lions up close in their enclosures are fascinating. This aspect we found to be excellent.

Finally, is it value for money? If you view your money as supporting conservation efforts in addition to this being a pure holiday attraction, then the seal sanctuary is certainly a worthwhile (and purposeful) place to visit.

In the end, we came away from the Cornish Seal Sanctuary feeling that it was positive half day well spent. Some walking required, but mostly not as exhaustive as the typical Cornwall coastal walks!‬

Thank you for your considered review, we are pleased that you found your visit to our sanctuary a positive one and we look forward to seeing your family again in the future. Pup season runs Sept to March and this is when you will find the rescued pups on their rehabilitation journey with us.

‪First things first, how do you get there? There are no satisfactory suggestions on the information leaflets published for this attraction,
or online.

There are 3 so-called Roads leading into the Village of Gweek. Be aware that 2 may prove impassable, the only real route is the longest
one, via Helston, if like most people, you are coming from the East.

Having successfully got there you will find a wonderful story of people dedicated to helping our very endangered marine wildlife survive,
against all the odds, against a backdrop of a thoughtless, ignorant and stupid Mankind, which has no real regard for the future of the
Planet upon which we all rely to survive.

It is well worth taking the time and effort to visit this marine wildlife sanctuary. Your support is essential.

Refreshment facilities are available onsite. Car parking is available.

Admissions may be pre-booked online. Major credit cards are accepted.‬

‪This is one of the few places I visit with animals because most others seem to focus on attracting tourists and making money whereas this is a proper sanctuary which is all about the seals (and penguins), humans just get the privilege of seeing the amazing work done by this organisation and the brilliant people in it. Genuinely a heartwarming experience. Our young children loved it too - seeing all the happy animals, great play area / picnic area and nice little gift shop. The site itself is in a stunning location with excellent views and a good walkway.‬
