California Sea Lions | Welsh Mountain Zoo

California Sea Lions

One of the most fun and friendly residents here at the Zoo, our California Sea Lions* love to play!

In line with government guidance on COVID-19, we’ve made some changes to our Zoo operations. For the latest updates on safety measures in place please click here.

They are super intelligent and incredible animals that delight the crowds every day.

Fishy treats are on the menu as you meet and interact with our Sea Lions and find out more fascinating facts about this wonderful animal.

All encounters start at £85 for one person or £110 for 2 people and last approximately 20 to 30 minutes.

For our Animal Experiences Terms and Conditions please click here.

* Please note. At all times during the “Encounter” there will be a protective safety barrier between you and the animals.

Please note that during busy periods, Animal Encounters can take up to 7 working days to be processed, therefore we ask you to bear with us.

At this moment in time there still is no update from the Welsh Government on relaxing social distancing requirements. Therefore we do not have a confirmed date as to when we will be able to restart booking our much awaited animal experiences.

Please rest assured that as soon as we have an update, we will be contacting everyone who booked directly through us to let them know that they can book in. For those who have booked via third parties, we will also be updating our social media and website to reflect this message, therefore we ask you to keep an eye out for updates.

At this moment in time you can still purchase open dated vouchers, by typing TBC on the selected dates and we will contact you to arrange dates once the restrictions have been lifted.
