Interact in the water with sea lions and manatees, two of the friendliest marine creatures that inhabit the enclosed pools within Chankanaab National Park. Following an introduction on how to maximize the experience, you will watch the sea lions perform entertaining antics on stage. You will then ease into a nearby swimming pool, where the sea lions will show off with acrobatic leaps and zip through the water at remarkable speeds.
