A day to remember!

Swimming with sea lions

Unfortunately, swimming with sea lions is not possible at the moment. As soon as this is possible again you can read it here on this page.

Are you crazy about sea lions and would you like to see them up close? Then book the package deal ‘Swimming with sea lions’ and have a day to remember.

Package Content:

Under the guidance of one of the sea lion trainers, you get to meet the sea lions at Deltapark. Together with the trainer, you will enter the pool in a wetsuit after which an interactive programme will follow. You will first be given a brief explanation of the wild behaviour of the California sea lions. Then you get to go into the water and touch and pet these beautiful marine mammals, so you can get used to each other. The trainer then teaches how to get the sea lions to do a task, for example, jumping through a hoop or balancing a ball. These exercises are also done during the sea lion show.

Because sea lions are good listeners, you can also feed the animals and get a smacking, salty sea lion kiss. The photographer captures this unique experience and you can take the photo home afterwards.

Price: € 55.00 p.p.

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

Important to know

From about mid-May you can swim with the sea lions, this is because this will be done outside. The water temperature is high enough from this period onwards. Despite the fact that the water is already quite warm, we will provide you with a wetsuit. For this, you will pay € 25.00 deposit. This will, of course, be returned to you when the suit is handed in. The suit will be handed to you at the park’s information desk. You can find this right after the entrance to the park. Make sure you are present at least 1 hour before the start.

Bring your own

You can wear your own usual swimwear under the wetsuit. It is also useful to bring water shoes or slippers, so you can wear them under your wet suit. After the programme, you will have the opportunity to wash off the salty water in the shower, so don’t forget your towel.

Water quality

The quality of the water where the sea lions stay is always well-monitored by the caretakers. To ensure that the quality is as good as possible for the sea lions, we request you not to wear any cosmetic products such as makeup, body lotion, sunscreen, hairspray and gel.
