Amazing excursion
April 04, 2020
This was by far the favorite thing we did on vacation. We got to meet, feed and touch Fred, an approximately 800 lb sea lion. We also met Rosie, his girlfriend. The trainors taught us about them and everything from beginning to end was very entertaining. Thank you for an amazing day! ❤️

The best single experience of our trip

We got to the park quite a bit before opening, and they actually let us in early. We were the only ones there for most of the morning, which was great. Our encounter was at 10:30 - there were only four of us total. It was SO COOL! The guides were fantastic, energetic, and hit so many great photos (of course we bought them - how could you not?!). The rest of the park is great too - easily walkable, lots to see and do, and friendly staff. Overall, a solid day.

This excursion totally exceeded my expectations. There were only 6 people plus an energetic trainer named Gabby in our group. We had soooo much interaction time with the sea lion , not just a hug, kiss and goodbye like I expected. They took lots of pictures for us and we purchased it on a thumb drive for a very reasonable price. There were also so many other things to see and do at coral world, my granddaughter enjoyed feeding the larakeets, and the underwater viewing of the fish....the beach, it was enjoyed by all 3 generations of my family.
