Under Water World

please do not touch the anims

underwater world Ben

Yesterday Ben and I went to UnderWater World and got to use up our seal swim voucher! Unfortunately the shark tank was closed for renovations but there was still heaps of other cool critters to see :)

I was being pretty discriminating and only taking pictures of the 'pretty' fish.  I was trying to get a cute shot of some turtles when this dude below kept swimming in front, basically engaging in some extreme photo bombing! I then started to realise how funny and rad he was and he ended up being one of my favourite animals of the day, he he he. lesson learned

and my other favourite fish, Mr sword fish with a happy smiley face!!

We then went to check out the cute otters. I still can't resist the cute :P

And then finally it was time for the seal show and our swim, weee!

this is where the show takes place and also where you get to swim with them

our ticket also included a free seal kiss, which is possibly one of the most fun things ever to receive!

They then take you back stage, give you a little tour and then they let you in the pool. The sad thing for me, not the seals, is that you can't pat them, so on that point alone I wouldn't recommend the seal swim but hey obviously I have patting issues and it was still a rad experience overall!
