Top Tips

A magical animal encounter that's ideal both as an experience or a gift voucher for the animal lover you know, this seal swim at SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast allows you to get a close and unforgettable encounter with these furry and friendly aquatic animals! Come face to face in an interactive manner with loveable seals within SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast as you enter their domain to swim, splash and play while learning all about the seal's habits, diets, environment and more. Available each day, you'll join your wildlife instructor and head "behind the scenes", heading to the area where the seals' food is prepared and then into their habitat for 15 minutes of true interactive bliss.

You'll be able to touch the animals' sleek fur, shake hands (or is that fins?) to get acquainted, and revel in their cheeky yet undeniably social nature; then cap everything off by posing alongside your new friend for a photo as you swim alongside one another. One of Queensland's most popular animal encounters, SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast Seal Swim takes place at 1pm every day and is frequently booked, so be sure to get your experience by booking online today - it's a true bucket list item, and one you won't forget!
