During your Seal Encounter, you get a behind-the-scenes look at the care and training of our marine mammals and join the trainers on the beach to meet a seal.
Trainer for a Day
Spend the day with an Aquarium trainer and take a behind-the-scenes look at this fascinating career! Help the trainers prepare fish, learn about the animal’s medical care, participate in sea lion enrichment, and so much more. Throughout your day, you meet a rescued seal and sea lion, and visit with a Humboldt penguin! Includes a t-shirt, snack, and photos to remember your special day!
