Need a new profile pic? We’ve got you covered. Make a connection with one of our California sea lions as our trainers lead a private training session at one of the exhibit windows. Learn about the training process and discover why sea lions are so engaging at the glass, then enjoy a one-of-a-kind photo op. 

You’ll also participate in an exclusive tour with an Aquarium educator before your flippered friend comes over, so you’ll have plenty of reasons to smile!
