This limited engagement features a colony (or raft) of coastal sea lions along with daily shows. It’s a sea of fun for everyone! Guests are invited to learn about the variety of life along the coasts of Mexico, Central and South America, and conserving natural habitats for these charismatic creatures.
Just beyond the splash zone, there’s fun in the sun with giant inflatables (bounces and slides), a specialty gift shop, and pool party-inspired food and beverages.
