This shore excursion was the highlight of a cruise we took this past month. We signed up for this excursion so my husband could enjoy the experience since he does not swim. Most of these encounters are "Swimming" with the Sea Lions or dolphins; this was a "Sea Lion Encounter". After experiencing the “Dolphin Encounter” in February, I researched another... More

Not many can say that they have been in the water with sea lions. My 11yo daughter and I loved this experience! The staff and trainers were all wonderful. Only "let down" - only tank tops that say "Sea Lion Encounter" - all other items are Dolphin Encounter

This is truly a geat adventure. You will never have such a great opportunity to get up close and personal with dolphins. The staff were extremely knowledgeable. You always felt safe and secure. It was so much fun and very educational.

My only complaint was not taking the land taxi to Paradise Island from the cruise ship. We were the last ones to get on the ferry to Blue Lagoon Island. After that, it was a great adventure. The sea lions are a blast, even though it was too short. I would recommend for all ages.

Although your interaction with the sea lions was brief, the photo op with them was fabulous, and the resulting pictures are truly priceless. In addition, this is a clean and well run attraction staffed by a helpful and cheerful staff. The boat ride to get to Blue Lgoon island was also a plus

In full disclosure, this was scheduled through one of the cruise ships; however, I don't think the cruise ship had anything to do with the actual experience. We did enjoy meeting the sea lions but basically it was a hug, a kiss, and we got to pet the sea lion. Great opportunity but quite expense for such a short experience.... More

A group of three of us decided that it was as high time that we learned about sea lions. What fun! Not only did we learn what types of fish are their favorites (herring, smelts, and capelins) but we also got to pet one, feed one, and even kiss one! I recommend this tour for all ages.

We visited on September 5,2016 as part of our cruise. There was a little mixup with getting off Allure of the Seas. Everyone was given different colored wristbands in the theater, but for some reason, RCCL decided to call all the colors at once, so it was just a mob getting off the ship. Once on the dock, we were... More

I absolutely loved the sea lion encounter! Having photos taken and interacting with them in the water was so fun, they're literally like big adorable dogs that swim. I only wish we could have stayed in the water with them a little longer. Blue Lagoon Island is gorgeous, easily the most beautiful place we visited during our 2 days in... More
