SEA LION ENCOUNTER
Our Sea Lion Encounter program is the ideal way to get to know our fun flippered friends up close and personal. Designed to be both educational and fun, this hands-on program begins with a short poolside introduction to the sea lions’ unique physiology, feeding habits and behaviors. Then, accompanied by one of our professional marine mammal trainers, you’ll get nose-to-nose with our sea lions in our specially designed pool.
These effortlessly nimble and adorable sea lions are also forthright – always telling you exactly what’s on their minds. Their barks, honks and trumpets will have everyone giggling.
You’ll be smitten with these lovable characters as they charm you with their wit, intelligence and skill. Watch your friendship develop through gentle petting, a shake of a flipper or two, and if you’re really lucky, a big fishy kiss.
We limit group sizes so you can make the most of this unforgettable opportunity to interact with the ocean’s most flirtatious mammals.
