Meet the sea lions

Closer to Sea Lions

UPDATE: Unfortunately, the program “closer to sea lions” is currently not possible. As soon as this is possible again, read it here on this page.

Would you like to take a picture with a sea lion or would you like to learn more about these wonderful animals; this is your chance! During the programme “Closer to Sea Lions”, you will learn all about the way sea lions live, the chance to feed them a fish and have the animal caregivers explain how the animals are trained.

Content of the package:

An introduction to sea lions and an explanation about the natural behaviour of Californian sea lions.

You can give the animals a behavioural task, for example, showing their fins or make a jump. These assignments are also part of the sea lion presentation. You will learn how to teach a sea lion tricks first hand from the caretaker.

Our photographer is also present to capture this special moment on camera. Your picture with the sea lion can be picked up later on at our photo service (included in the price).

And of course, you can feed the animals and get a big, salty kiss as a reward!

Price: € 45,- p.p.

Reservations can only be made by phone: +31 111 655 663
