Under the Sea

Under the Sea featuring Pirate Island is a nautical adventure for the whole family to enjoy - with lots of interactive features and fun characters!

Arguably the leading play facility in the area, our Soft Play area includes interactive features exclusive to the Dolphin Centre offering activity for children up to the age of 8.

Come and meet Pirate Pete and help the Mermaid Princess find Fin the Dolphin, who has been stolen by Slick and MC the mischievous sharks. Along the way join in the challenge to see if you come across Pirate Pete's treasure.
