Sea Lion Show
Showtimes: 1030, 1230, 1430 (all shows in both English & Spanish)
Entrance fee: free with park admission

This 15-minute show is both educational and cute all in one. If you are in the park, you definitely want to attend this free show. They will teach you the difference between the Sea Lion and a Seal. They also interact with the Sea Lion and shows you their cute personality and how easily it is to train them. Sit in the first row of the stage to get up and close to them when the Sea Lion come to show you different parts of their bodies during the show.

Stay after the show to get a kiss from one of the stars of the show. (note: they have the participants turn their backs to the stage so you can’t take free pics of them while this is going on. It’s still worth the kiss on the cheek even if you don’t purchase their photo of the once in a lifetime experience)

Crocodile Exhibition

Located behind the lagoon on the far right-hand side. There are two pens. One with two massive crocs and another pin with four much smaller ones. The cages are rather small for these critters, but it gives you a great close and personal proximity to them. Please do NOT attempt to place your camera inside the cage or poke them with any sticks. Check out the over head suspension bridges that you can walk on over the croc pens. Hope they don’t break! Yikes!
