Under sea adventures

Our guests at Blue Reef Aquarium

Some of our Short Break Centre guests were really excited about taking a dip into life under the sea on a recent trip out – yet not one of them got wet!

A much-anticipated visit to Tynemouth's Blue Reef Aquarium opened up a magical world under the ocean for guests, Adam and Leighton, with coral, sharks, seals and otters all included on the itinerary.

"There were so many interesting things to see and learn about on our visit," said Residential Care Officer, Lauren Billington, "and we had so much fun, too. We made up names for some of the strange-looking fish and there were even fish that looked just like Nemo and Dory from the Disney films!"

After an underwater walk surrounded by marine life - including the Centre's resident sharks - Adam and Leighton were thoroughly entertained by the antics of the seals.

"We rounded off the trip with a favourite meal of sausage and chips," added Lauren. "We all agreed that was the perfect end to a perfect day."
