Sea Lion Encounter

Our Sea Lion Encounters are a fun way to really get to know our fantastic flippered friends! Designed to be both, fun and educational, our sea lion programs give you the chance to learn more about them on land, and then slip into waist-deep water to interact with these awesome mammals.

This hands-on program begins with a poolside informative introduction that will help you understand the sea lions' physiology, feeding habits and behaviors. Then, accompanied by one of our professional marine mammal trainers, you'll get up-close and personal with our sea lions in a specially designed educational pool.

Fast, agile and adorable, sea lions are fascinating to watch - and never timid about speaking what's on their minds. As our friendly sea lions romp and frolic with you, their barks, honks and trumpets will surely keep you amused, and they'll delight you with their intelligence and skills.

The sea lions' foolery, folly and frivolity will entertain and enchant you, and you’ll fall in love with these marvelous marine mammals as you get to know them through petting, shaking a flipper or two, and if you're lucky, you might even get a big fishy kiss!

Group sizes are kept to a maximum of 8 people per encounter so you'll get the most out of this fascinating experience. Make your reservations NOW!
