Join the animal husbandry staff as they feed and care for the Aquarium’s seals and sea lions. Limited to twenty guests total and with a maximum group size of six people, this exclusive experience gains you early access to the Aquarium’s outdoor areas before the facility opens to the public.

Get an insider’s experience as the seals and sea lions enjoy their morning meal and undergo their daily health checks. Animal care staff members will discuss each animal and how the Aquarium cares for them and will also answer questions from participants. After the presentation, guests will have fifteen minutes to begin exploring the outdoor exhibits before they open to the public at 9:00 a.m. Advance reservations are required.
