Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Your half-day excursion begins at the pier where you'll be transferred to the Dolphin Center. At the center, you'll get an opportunity to interact with one of the ocean's most friendly creatures. This sea lion program allows you to get up close and personal with a sea lion and learn about these comical, mischievous marine mammals in an intimate setting.

You'll see how sea lions are such lovable rascals. Playful and very friendly, they are fast, agile and tons of fun to interact with. And their inclination to engage in play with humans, including you in their games, is what makes sea lion encounters so exhilarating and such a special experience.

A trainer will brief you on sea lion physiology and behavior before you enter the water where you'll have an opportunity to play, pet, shake a flipper, and possibly, receive a big wet kiss! This is an undeniably fun way to get acquainted with our affectionate sea lion friends. One in which you're sure to cherish for a long time to come.

Bathing suits are required, but you can leave your camera behind. For the safety of the sea lions and your own, you are not permitted to bring a camera in the water during the sea lion swim. Besides, you'll want to focus your full attention on these playful characters! Professional photographers will be there to capture your experience in pictures and video. You'll have the option to purchase images of your sea lion swim after the tour, a highly recommended souvenir worth the expense.

After your sea lion experience, enjoy a delicious lunch buffet at the center. You'll have time to purchase photos and/or videos offering priceless memories before boarding your transport to return to your cruise ship.
