Sea Lion Shows and Public Outreach Programs

Sea Lion Encounters , a one of a kind, transportable marine exhibit spectacular that offers sea lion ambassadors to inspire and delight audiences while providing an educational marine conservation outreach program. Dynamic multiple animal shows include exciting sea lion behaviors like ball balancing and handstands, amazing leaps and jumps, and an inspiring in-water interaction between trainer and sea lions.


To fully enjoy the Sea Lion Encounters experience, we offer sea lion kisses, photos, interactions and merchandise for people of all ages. It’s a great way to support our education, conservation and research projects and a great way to spend a day with the family. All proceeds go towards the finest care and maintenance of our animals and facilities and helping to spread the message of conservation of our marine environments
