Our guests are treated to an amazing display by our California Sea Lions, Biffo, Arthur, Roger and Louis! Our daily sea lion display is one of our most popular attractions and is perfect for families with children of all ages. Not only is the display fantastic to watch, it’s also educational; our trainers love to share lots of interesting facts about the sea lions during the display and are always happy to answer any questions you may have at the end.
Sea Lion Pool
When they’re not taking part in the display, our sea lions love to relax in their brilliant outdoor pool where they can swim, play and even sunbathe in the Summer.
There is also a viewing area where you can take a close-up look at the sea lions’ underwater antics, which has proved to be a huge hit with our guests.
About our sea lions
Biffo is the oldest sea lion and is also the most dominant. He is very intelligent, but also very calm, which means that he is the sea lion you are most likely to meet if you take part in a “Keeper for the Day” experience.
Arthur was born in 2004 and is probably the most intelligent sea lion. He is very adaptable and is never afraid to give anything a try.
Roger and Louis are brothers! Roger joined us in 2014 from Belgium, and Louis joined us in 2016 from Belfast Zoo! We think they’re by far the cutest members of the group, make up your own mind during your next visit to us!
Please double check on the day of your visit any changes to the schedule for that day. Our entrance team will be happy to give you this information.
* Please be aware that under our fire regulations we cannot allow prams in to the Sea Lion building purely for the safety of all the children and guests visiting us. We do have a buggy area where owners may leave prams at their own risk.
