Seals and Sea Lions are a delight to watch as they twirl, dive and play. Now, thanks to the new pinniped habitat, the Oregon Coast Aquarium offers even more viewing stations and a water depth of 15 feet for these animals show off exactly how adorable they are. If you watch the shenanigans from one of the many viewing stations, you may even be greeted by a Sea Lion.
If you have ever wanted to meet these furry creatures up close, for $35 you can take a back stage tour of the new exhibit and receive “Sea Lion Kisses.” Kids over 8 are sure to enjoy being tickled by sea lion whiskers. Reserve your spot ahead of time and bring a camera to document the fun!
