Tour Summary

Sea lions are by far one of the friendliest and most energetic creatures of the sea. It is no wonder that we have decided to add them alongside the famously sociable dolphins. Sea lions are just as friendly, if not more! And their intelligence is also something to be wondered at! These are creatures that are quite adept at learning. Watch them dance, jump into the water, and give you heart warming kisses. The full Bahamas Sea Lion encounter features hands on contact with the sea lions, educational presentations, and plenty of fun, laughter, and adventure to make sure you will remember the amazing experience of interacting with sea lions.

Our Bahamas Sea Lion Encounter is the closest you will be able to get to California Sea Lions. The program starts off with a fun and interactive presentation that serves as an orientation to our sea lion facility in Blue Lagoon Island. You will learn all about sea lion history, training techniques, and important issues regarding sea lion protection and ocean conservation. Also, professional photography and video are available in order to keep your encounter with you for a lifetime.

These awesome sea lion programs take place at the stunning island paradise known as Blue Lagoon. On Blue Lagoon, you will find a beautiful Bahamas beach, clear blue-green waters, and endless options for water sports and activities. On Blue Lagoon, you will also find a state of the art Dolphin and Marine Animal center, that is a leader for research and education in the Bahamas. This is where you will get your chance to meet and interact with the Nassau Sea Lions! You can also explore the dolphin programs here including a Swim with the Dolphins program and a shallow water Nassau Dolphin Encounter.

Thanks to the professional guides! I was a bit worried about kayaking because I had never done it before, but the instructions were great and I had such a good time!
