About Sea Lions

Dolphins are not the only fascinating marine creatures that are found in the marine facilities in Isla Mujeres just off the coast of Cancun. The facilities are also home to several sea lions, another creature known for its friendly and sociable disposition with each other and with humans. During your visit to the marine biology and animal facilities in Cancun, you will also have the chance to meet and interact with these unforgettable sea lions. If you are interested in playing with sea lions, then join us for the informative and eye-opening Sea Life Discovery Plus program that allows you to meet and play with sea lions, dolphins, and manatees.

Like dolphins, sea lions are excellent creatures to interact with due to their eagerness to meet and play with humans. Sea lions are also highly intelligent animals and will impress you with their abilities to perform tricks such as catching and balancing a ball on their noses. What the sea lions are most known for, however, is their playful and hilarious antics. If you've ever seen a sea lion show before, you know that these animals know how to entertain and keep their audience laughing. Now, during your visit to Cancun, you will be able to meet these joyful animals right up close. Shake their hands, give them a hug, and let them give you a wet sea lion kiss.

Sea lions are mammals that live close to water and can spend up to 15 minutes underwater, but spend the majority of their time on land (albeit close to water, where they do the majority of their hunting). They are recognized for their long fore-flippers, their pointed muzzle with whiskers, and the way they walk on all fours. They can grow to be as large as 660 pounds and live up to 15 years out in the wild (though in marine facilities they tend to live significantly longer due to the absence of predators). They feed predominantly on squid and fish species such as salmon and anchovies. They are known for their almost comical way of walking and their distinctive vocalizations. During your marine program, you will get to see the quirky antics of the sea lions right in person.
