So you’ve heard about swimming with the dolphins, but have you ever thought about taking a swim with the sea lions? If this sounds like an activity you might enjoy, sign up for the Sea Lion Discovery Swim at Sea Life Park, located near Honolulu, Hawaii. Offered with or without transportation from your hotel, this is a once in a lifetime chance to get up close and personal with these friendly little critters. After a brief orientation given by one of the trainers, you will hop in the water and become part of the action. Watch the sea lions as they swim underwater and give them a little rub; they will surely return the affection. They may even give you a show as they jump over hurdles and mimic their guests.
Visitors aged eight and above can enjoy this rare opportunity to get a peek at these friendly animals, and everyone will be thoroughly entertained during the special interactions with the sea lions. These swims are very interactive, and you will learn a lot about how sea lions communicate, both by seeing it and through the informative commentary of the trainers.
Don’t forget to bring a swimsuit, a towel, and a smile on the day of your park visit. Safety vests areprovided at the time of the swim. For more information on this activity and many more, visit www.honolulutours.net.
