The seals and sea lions at Seaquarium

 

 

 

In the giant pool in Seaquarium's marine mammals' area, you'll find number of harbour seals and Patagonian sea lions ...

It's always a great fun to watch the seals and sea lions cavorting about in the Marine  Mammals' area: sit in the terraces and watch them swimming, sleeping and eating...

You might even be able to play with some of the younger ones in the undersea observatory !

Guests are generally informed of the next meal being served to these cheerful Pinnipedia over the loudspeaker…
