Sea Life Park - Sea Lion Discovery
With our one of a kind Sea Lion Discovery program, you’ll be able to find out about the remarkable personalities of sea lions! You can rest assured that you’ll be grinning for hours after your sea lion interaction. Dolphin Discovery’s Sea Lion Discovery at Oahu Sea Life Park gives you a chance for some educational but playful interaction with these incredible creatures. After a brief orientation session with your animal trainer and the sea lions, you’ll be able to join in on the fun with these affectionate and amusing animals. During the program, you’ll get the chance to give and receive a sea lion kiss (those whiskers will surely tickle!), get a warm sea lion hug, and pet the sea lions as they glide by you in the water. You’ll also be able to assist the trainer by providing signals to the sea lions that will allow these loveable creatures to prove their abilities and intelligence to you. During this Oahu Activity, you’ll get to see the fantastic sense of humor that sea lions possess, and you’ll learn that they love to mimic human beings, so get ready to laugh hysterically!
