This experience allows you to get up close with our Humboldt penguins and Californian sea lions.

Spend your day with our Discovery Trail Keepers helping them with feeds, shows and enrichment.


Your day will begin with meeting our penguins; you will help the keepers tidy their enclosure as well as help the Keepers put out the penguins enrichment activities. 

Next you will move on to the Sea Lion Theatre where you will be able to watch a training session and be introduced to the audience of the Sea Lion Show as a special guest. There are some areas where your Keeper will take photos these will be put onto a disk for you, available for you to take away on the day. This will be followed by a complimentary lunch in Dino Diner.

Included in the package is a certificate to say you have been a keeper for the day, a guide book and a CD of photos as well as a VIP wristband for unlimited use of the rides.
