I arranged a visit to the Sea Lion Encounter for my family. The boat ride to the lagoon was not long and enjoyed looking at the houses and the beautiful crystal clear water. There were only 10 people to see the sea lions, which I thought would give us a little more time with them. We had to sit through... More

This was part of the excursion we purchased on our disney cruise and it was alot of fun. It was not rushed like some of the other types of encounters I have seen. Our sea lion was Sunshine and she was quite the character. She gave kisses, sat on your lap, swam by to let you pet her, blew you... More

About 4 years ago we purchased this excursion through our cruise line. They are really nice at the facility. It was fun being with the animals in the water learning about them. I would do this again. The only down fall is they don't let you bring cameras in so the only photos you get are the ones that you... More

The sea lion encounter was absolutely amazing! The trainers were great with the animals, and were absolutely hilarious! They kept us laughing through the entire encounter, which was about 45 minutes in length. Maggie the sea lion was incredibly smart and funny! My family had a great time, and now have wonderful pictures and memories. I would highly recommend this... More

My husband and I did this on a cruise stop and it was our favorite excursion. I have swam with dolphins and sting rays in the past, but the sea lions were the most up close and personal. They are extremely intelligent and Maggie, our sea lion, gave me a kiss on my cheek, my lips and wrapped her flippers... More

We loved our experience with the sea Lions and it was worth the value. We did it through our cruise ship excursion desk and really enjoyed it.

In fairness, my rating of the sea lion encounter is probably lower because of doing the dolphin swim first. The dolphin swim was so fantastic that the sea lion encounter just didn't live up to it. The sea lions were really cute and seemed well cared for, but they didn't seem to enjoy the interaction in the same way that... More

This was a great experience to interact with the very friendly, intelligent and playful sea lions. We have done dolphin experiences before but this was something new and very, very good. We were due to be with one of the older sea lions but she wasn't in the mood and the staff do not pressure the animals in to anything... More

We waited over an hour after our scheduled time. The experience itself was nice for the kids but it was disorganized. They loved interacting with the animals. The staff just seemed a little on the lazy side.
