Animal Interaction Programs

Enhance your Aquarium experience by participating in one of our animal interaction programs!

  • Pose With A Pinniped and get some one-on-one time with a California sea lion, and the unique experience ends with the chance to take a selfie with the sea lion.
  • Lead the Feed and participate in a training and feeding session with our sharks and stingrays.
  • Penguin Encounters include a beak-to-nose encounter with our Humboldt penguins. Watch them waddle around outside of the exhibit, and learn more about these fascinating Peruvian birds! *Please note: Due to enhanced safety protocols in response to the Avian Flu, Penguin Encounters are unavailable at this time.
  • Seal Encounters bring you behind-the-scenes to check out the care and training of our marine mammals. You’ll join the trainers on the beach and get close-up access to a seal.
  • Trainer for a Day puts you into the crocs of one of our marine mammal trainers!
