Sea Lion Trainer Experience
Dive into the world of Sea Lion training as you head behind the scenes at our Active Oceans Arena with our expert trainers.
You’ll start your day on the beach as you watch a private training session and witness first-hand how we teach our sea lions new behaviours. Then it’s time for you to step up and practise one of these behaviours for yourself. Next, it’s time to weigh and prepare a fishy feast before heading on a behind the scenes tour and feeding some of our sea lions. Finally, you’ll watch our popular sea lion display from the beach before making your public debut to show off your new skills as a sea lion trainer.
We only accept one booking per slot, so your experience will be exclusive to you… and your friends if you can bring yourself to share!
Each experience lasts for about two hours and you will be free to enjoy the zoo for the remainder of the day. This experience includes admission into the zoo and you’ll also get a complimentary car park pass, certificate and a £10 voucher each to spend in our gift shops.
