• Boy with Sea Lion at Dolphin Cay


The Playtime with Sea Lions experience is an opportunity to truly understand these amazing sea mammals by playing, swimming, and engaging with them to promote enrichment. As part of the interaction, you will join our marine mammal behaviorists “behind the scenes,” where you will see how we feed and care for our family of rescued marine mammals. Dolphin Cay is a world renowned dolphin and sea lion habitat that opened in 2007 in time to provide a safe haven for 17 stranded dolphins and 14 sea lions whose home was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.
