Selwo Marina has a wonderfully broad and exciting programme of activities, events and exhibitions that are not only thrilling to watch but also offer a rare, ‘close up’ learning experience as you interact with the park’s amazing marine mammals.
Everyone’s favourite event – the traditional dolphin show – takes place three times a day and now has a new twist with an extra opportunity to ‘Meet the Dolphins’ – an interactive, in-pool event enabling visitors to play games, participate in training sessions, and really get to know the personalities of these highly intelligent and loveable creatures.
Other events give you and your family the rare chance to ‘Meet the Penguins’ in their own, icy environment, or to ‘Swim with Sea Lions’ in a specially adapted pool. There are also regular shows throughout the day featuring exotic birds, penguin-feeding, squirrel monkeys and tortoise-feeding.
A great day out in Selwo Marina will take in four distinctly different areas – the Antilles, with its Caribbean setting, is the place to see the dolphins and sea lions; the Ice Island is the super-chilled home of the penguins; the Hollow with its exotic bird species; and finally, Amazonia where hundreds of species of fish, reptiles and insects are the star attractions.
Conservation is high on the agenda at Selwo Marina, which has a huge commitment to maintaining the balance of the natural through the protection of every species – flora and fauna – gathered together in the park. Regular exhibitions, lectures and workshops are presented to provide an educational element to contrast with and complement the excitement of the animal displays outside.
A day out at Selwo Marina will be one of the most treasured memories of your holiday at Club La Costa World – it’s a full day of fun, so pack a picnic or enjoy the park’s own catering facilities – and don’t forget your swimsuit if you want to go into the water with the dolphins or the sea lions!
