My husband and I decided to book this encounter on our one day cruise stop at Nassau. It just happened to be the hubby's 34th birthday and he has a very specialize for otters- sea lions seemed close enough for us! Started off with an orientation and then posed for pictures with Kalika! Then we went into the water, standing... More

The staff also had Bonnie sing me happy birthday. It was awesome and we have to the video to last a lifetime. We bought... More

We had a wonderful experience interacting with the Sea lions. The staff was knowledgeable and interesting. They gave us instruction and information about the sea lions both in the wild and those cared for at the training facility. I was amazed to learn that sea lions actually live longer in captivity than in the wild. We had lots of interaction... More

This was the highlight of our trip. There was a small group of us. We got a tour of the facility before our swim. We got to pet, feed, and interact with Luna. The trainers answered all our questions and made the whole experience very enjoyable. The pictures were expensive. If I had known we could have brought our camera... More

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.
