Wembury Marine Centre's Events - Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Please see below for the answers to questions we are frequently asked about our events - if you can't find the answer you are looking then please Contact Us and we will be happy to help.

Is there a charge for events?

Yes, most of our events have a charge per participant and all the income goes to Devon Wildlife Trust to help support the Marine Centre and our important conservation work.

Please click on a specific event to find out the cost.

During the 2021 season, we will be limiting numbers on our events and therefore booking in advance will usually be required.  Please click on a specific event for booking info.  If there are spaces left on the day, then we will take card payments.

Do I need to book for your events?

Yes please.  During 2021 we are limiting numbers on our events, so booking in advance is usually required.  Please click on a specific event to find booking and payment details.

If we have spaces left on the day of the event, then we will take bookings in the Marine Centre and payment by card can be made.

Do we pay to park in the Wembury beach car park?

Yes, all of the events are delivered by our Devon Wildlife Trust staff members who run the Marine Centre. The Wembury beach car park is owned and managed by the National Trust and their car park charges apply for all of our events.

Can my child attend on their own?

All children must be accompanied by an adult (over 18 years) for the majority of our events.

The main exception is our childcare Holiday Clubs where children attend on their own (booking in advance is essential).

Children must be 8 years old to attend our Snorkel Safari events, they can join us without an adult in the water but someone must remain on the beach for them - adults are welcome to book a place and join us too!

What do we need to bring and / or wear for your events?

Please wear sturdy footwear for our rockpooling events, wellington boots are ideal - if you can get your feet wet then you will be able to really get stuck in to our rockpooling experience! And please dress for the weather. 

Please don't bring nets, we follow the Seashore Code on all of our events and nets can damage the plants and animals and the rockpool habitat in general. We provide buckets and will teach you how to catch creatures with your hands.

Can I bring a group to attend one of your public events?

We offer private events specifically for groups of all ages.

We also offer Birthday Party bookings.

Please Contact Us to discuss further and to make a booking.
