What you can expect

Share a wet kiss and a slippery hug with the ocean's most flirtatious creature, a sea lion. Hop in a specially designed pool with a professional trainer and spend time learning about sea lions' anatomy, eating habits, playful behavior, and what you can do to help conservation efforts.

Marine mammal trainers invite you to join an educational and hands-on poolside experience with the friendly sea lions. Watch these fascinating animals propel through the water and waddle around their cave, waterfall, and rock platform. Listen to their noisy barking and learn about their unique communication, pup rearing techniques, and why they're so friendly.

These lively animals are known for their intelligence and playfulness, so don't be surprised when they jump over you in the middle of the water. Learn signals for tricks and feed some of the sea lions their favorite treats. This is 1 of just 2 places in the world that offers the rare opportunity to meet and get up-close with sea lions—don't miss it on your trip to Puerto Vallarta.
