A first for the Bahamas, this thrilling close encounter with California sea lions promises to be interactive, educational, and entertaining for everyone.

Our Sea Lion Encounter allows guests an opportunity to experience these creatures up-close like never before in our pristine all-natural habitat. Upon arrival, you'll receive a short orientation and then you'll have the chance to kiss, hug, feed, and play with these affectionate and humorous marine mammals and see their habitat as well.

Your sea lion interaction will take place on specially designed, waist-deep water platforms submerged in a calm, private island lagoon with 10 or less guests in each program.

Non-participants may observe those in their party who are taking part in the program by paying $30 for the ferry ride from Paradise Island to Blue Lagoon. This observer fee is payable directly to the ferry and no reservations are necessary.

Purchase the Super Combo w/ Blue Lagoon if you want to combine the Sea Lion Encounter with the Blue Lagoon Beach Day at a special discounted price! After your sea lion encounter, you'll enjoy time at the beach, lunch, and some relaxing beach toys! (See special instructions) You must purchase either the 8:30 a.m. or 10:30 a.m. tour departure in order to have time to do the dolphin program and enjoy the beach.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
