What could be more fun than spending time with a sea lion? Our intelligent and playful family of sea lions is waiting to meet you and help you learn all about what makes sea lions so special.

You’ll be able to get up close and personal with your new flippered friend in our specially-designed shallow water pool in a 20-minute small group. The swimming with sea lions encounter is an experience you will never forget!

Get ready to clown around! Sea lions are known for their intelligence, affectionate playfulness, and noisy “barking.” And, you’ll experience all of that and more in your sea lion encounter. You can pet a sea lion, shake a flipper, give them a hug and maybe even get a wet, fishy kiss in return.

This is an unforgettable experience for the entire family. Kids and grownups alike will be smitten with our sea lions, all of whom love spending time with people and showing off for guests. They don’t hesitate to let us know what’s on their minds! Their exuberant barks, honks, and trumpets will have everyone in your group giggling.
