Poor sea lions 😫 Iv travelled a lot and I have an understanding of animal enclosures, and how keeping them safe comes first. But this is NOT the case. The enclosure itself is horrific, iv never in my life seen such a shallow and small...More

If you like animals then this will make you sad as the sea lions have a poor quality of life especially. However other animals were not able to carry out their natural actions as the conditions are poor. please release the seal Iions especially

The boat trip itself is enjoyable. However, the poor old lobster is kept in a cage and the small enclosure for the two sea lions is horrendous. This treatment of animals should not be allowed.

Two seals were kept in a very small enclosure. They did not have much room to swim. It wasn't obvious to us that we would see captive seals, and definitely not in such a small enclosure. Horrible experience. I wish we hadn't financially supported this...More
