Review: ‘Caribbean Cove’ at Weymouth Sea Life Adventure Park

I have always absolutely loved visiting Weymouth Sea Life Adventure Park.

Living in Dorset, it’s only a forty minute drive away for us and I have so many happy memories there as a child. I think I even went there on a first date once (lol!) and now I have my own family we still visit every single year without fail.

You can spend all day at the park as there is so much to do. As well as watching and learning about all the amazing sea life creatures such as turtles, sharks, rays, colourful fish, sea lions and penguins (to name a few) the kids can run wild and play in the different play parks and the splash zone. One of my son Lucas’s favourite parts is walking on the rock pools and also the Pirates Mini Golf next door.

You can imagine my excitement when my family and I were invited to preview the park’s brand new attraction – ‘Carribean Cove’ on Saturday the 25th March.

Caribbean Cove’ will be Dorset’s largest adventure playground, where children will be able to have fun exploring and learning about the importance of marine conservation with Tyler the Turtle.

The weather was GORGEOUS and the four of us along with my best friend Sophie and Godson Theo, were all looking forward to a fun day out and to hopefully wear out our little monkeys.

The kid’s faces were an absolute picture when we arrived. There are THREE towers and FIVE fun slides, a galleon and ship to play on, a shark tunnel, sand pit to find turtle eggs, the ‘canyon bridge’and a oceanic octopus crawl tunnel to keep the children entertained for ages. Lucas, Ava and Theo were in their element exploring, climbing and going down the slides, being the big kid he is, Dan of course got involved too!

Toilets are on site which is brilliant for the little ones, there are benches to sit and eat your lunch and the adults will be pretty buzzing to know there will be a ‘proud to serve’ Costa Coffee within the cove opening on the 8th April.

We also loved that the park is so bright and colourful and caribbean music plays through the speakers. It was lovely and hot while we were there and almost felt like you were on holiday, all I needed was a cocktail!

We stayed in the new attraction for over two hours and actually had to drag the kids away to explore the rest of the Sea Life Adventure Park. The rest of our visit was great, even when Lucas interrupted one of the talks to tell the member of staff his own facts about penguins and Ava threw my NEW sunglasses in the Sea Lion enclosure.

Can you spot my sunglasses?!?!

We had an amazing time at Weymouth Sea Life Adventure Park and feel very lucky to have been among the first to explore the brand new ‘Caribbean Cove’. It’s definitely going to be a huge hit and we can’t wait to go back again.

Til Next Time,
