Nicole (the female) is so cool! My wife and I could not be more pleased with this experience. The only thing I didn not like was the price to purchase the pictures ($35 for a CD).

provides a 20 minute lecture with a sea lion on land, which teaches you about their habits. You get to feed and take pictures with the sea lion. Other 20 minutes is in the water with another larger sea lion where you can take pictures and interact with it. You cannot take your own pictures, and the picture set they sell you is a bit pricey. We bought it though because the quality of the pictures are very nice.

What a wonderful day we had, learning all about sea lions and getting to swim with them. I give this tour the highest rating possible and recommend it for travellers of all ages, from 2 to 100. The tour begins on land with the group sitting in a semi-circle listening to the guide tell us all about sea lions. Pretty soon one of these characters waddles her way into the center of the circle and shows us her tricks - - - clapping, shaking hands with each of us, walking like a seal (yes, there is a difference), and giving each of us a BIG KISS. Then we enter a roped off area in the water and another sea lion, a larger male, follows us in to swim beside us. I'm always hesitant to see attractions where we humans use animals for our own financial benefit, sometimes to the detriment of the animals. I'll have to say, though, that these sea lions were in extremely good condition and appeared to be well cared for. The main guide was very knowledgeable and had worked with the 2 sea lions for almost 10 years - - a testament to the fact that they're doing right by these animals. This tour is a MUST SEE!!!
