Sea Lion Sound

Sea Lion Sound

Transport yourself to the pacific northwest by visiting the sea lion sound exhibit! Located in the center of the Zoo near the Penguin Coast Exhibit, this natural habitat-themed display features an 103,000-gallon pool for sea lions. Whether they are basking on rock formations or deep diving in the pool, sea lions are always the center of attention. The exhibit has views from underwater in a lower level area, at water level under a “sea-side” dock structure and above water at the “beach” area, so you can always catch the sea lions in action! These social marine mammals are love visitors and are ready to play!
