SEAQUARIUM AHOY FOR PIRATE MONTH


Release Date: Wednesday 25 July 2018

Pirates and seals look forward to welcoming guests during Pirate Month
SeaQuarium Rhyl is preparing to be overrun with buccaneers, adventurers and swashbucklers this August as part of their annual Pirate Month!
 
Staff at the attraction are looking forward to getting into the spirit of the annual event with numerous themed activities and interactive encounters, including a special family seal show.
 
South African fur seal shipmates - Sefur, Nelly and Solo - will be teaching young pirates and staff alike important lessons on what it takes to be a good pirate and how to plan an adventurous escape from Dead Man’s Seal Cove.
 
Captain Katie, who keeps the seal shipmates in order said, “In the summer, seals naturally compete for dominance within their group, but this year they seem to be doing this by trying to show off more and more.
 
“Our three superstar seals have always been competitive and love nothing more than displaying their amazing abilities, so we’ve encouraged these behaviours to produce a brand-new family show. We will be needing the audience’s help to find and salute the best captain!”
 
The SeaQuarium in Rhyl is home to over 100 different species, from creepy crawly tarantulas to charismatic harbour seals. But the undisputed stars of the show are the three South African fur seals, who really do entertain with jumps, dives and splashes.
 
As well as the seals and staff, guests are encouraged to get involved in the swashbuckling fun by dressing up for the event in pirate outfits. Any child (3-16yrs) who arrives in full fancy dress will receive 30% off entry into the aquarium when accompanied by an adult. Plus, adults in full pirate’s attire will receive 30% off admission too.
 
Additionally, guests are invited to join the free Captain’s Craft Club and for a small fee, take part in a treasure hunt around the centre to uncover some booty of their very own.
 
There are also various talks and demonstrations taking place throughout the day, where guests are invited to learn more about the weird and wonderful oceans and the pirates that once sailed upon them!
 
During the August holiday, all of the aquarium’s exhibits will be open as usual. Standard admission prices are £9.75 for adults and £8.75 for children. SeaQuarium Rhyl is located on the promenade and open 10am daily with last admission at 5pm.
