Totally worth it!! Fun ferry ride over, beautiful island and the Sea Lion Encounter is so fun! The trainers were awesome and everyone on the island was really nice. We did the excursion in the morning, it was a small group...only 9 of us, and in the afternoon we enjoyed the beach before we took the ferry back!

I did this 3 years ago and took my 11 year old daughter back to do it. It is such a wonderful experience. You really get to spend alot of time with the Sea Lion and even get some hugs and kisses! We then stayed after and snorkeled around the lagoon. Worth the money!

What an great experience this was. A bit pricey but I tell my self it's partly for the animals the money goes to. At least I hope. Sea Lion encounter was great either way.

Sea lion encounter was lots of fun, but, at $109 per person, very pricey. This animal encounter stuff is best saved for a trip to Mexico. For example: a dolphin swim at Blue Lagoon is $180. In Puerta Vallarta, Mexico, it's $85 and includes all day access to a water park.

We had an amazing time with the sea lions! Only 8 people were in our early morning group and we all had more than enough time with the sea lions. The staff and trainers were very well educated about the animals and were very courteous. Jack was my favorite sea lion and he was so smart, gentle, loveable, and stole... More

We chose this excursion during our NCL cruise. The group being limited to only 10 participants was nice. Lockers and wetsuits provided at no additional charge if interested. After a quick individual photo op on the deck with one of sea lions, we all entered the water to stand on a platform submerged about 3-3.5 feet for the hands on... More

After seeing numerous positive reviews, I was looking forward to this activity. But the reviews may have raised my expectations much higher than the reality warranted. As a couple of other reviewers here noted, it seemed like the main purpose of the activity was just to provide photo ops so they could try and sell the photos/videos to us later.... More

My group decided to do the Sea Lion encounter while we were in the Bahamas as part of a cruise. I was not disappointed at all. When you first get there you go through an orientation where you learn about sea lions and ocean conservation. You then get to meet a sea lion on land and pose for pictures. You... More
