While professional animal trainers supervise, guests and dolphins will share kisses, hugs, and ‘dances.’ Participants have the chance to touch the dolphin’s smooth, rubbery skin and feed their new people-loving friends some fishy treats, all while posing for some once in a lifetime photos!
Come see the playful Patagonian sea lions – aptly named the clowns of the sea – swim, dive, leap, bark and show off their acrobatic skills before your up-close meeting in one of our interaction pools. Be sure to book your opportunity to meet, pet and feed these fascinating mammals!
The two male and six female sea lions at Ocean World come from Uruguay and South America and offer guests a very special encounter. Small groups of visitors are invited into unique pool areas where they can touch, feed, pet, and play games with these comical sea lions.
At the end of the encounter, guests get a hug, a big wet kiss and the photo opportunity of a lifetime! Take your own or order them from Ocean World’s professional photographers.
Admission is included when you book this interaction program.
