Sea Lion Splash is the only traveling sea lion show in the United States. Operated by Squalus, Inc., an organization that provides homes for beached sea lions unable to return to the wild, the troop features animals from both California and the Patagonia region of South America. At first glance, these “performers” may look more suited for channel surfing from a comfy seat on the couch. But when the bright lights shine on them, these whiskered wonders come to life, putting on a one-of-a-kind display of singing and dancing, acrobatics, and all manner of delightful hijinks. You will thrill at the opportunity to come face to face with these amazing animals as they shoot baskets, turn handstands, and engage in all sorts of silly antics, eager to please and hungry for the love of the crowd. And if you’re lucky…you just might get a kiss from one of these lovely ladies.
