Tampa, Florida -- For a limited time, Sea Lion Splash is coming to Tampa's Lowry Park zoo.
Sea Lion Splash will be at the zoo from March 1 to May 31. It is an attraction that features a colony of coastal sea lions, daily presentations and an outdoor activity area.
While the sea lions charm the audience, guests will learn about the variety of life along the coasts of Mexico, Central and South America, and conserving natural habitats for these charismatic creatures.
"Tampa is truly a gateway to the Americas. The sea lion educational program is designed to help us to better appreciate some of our nearest neighbors from the California coast to South America," said Craig Pugh, CEO and executive director of the Zoo. "Up-close experiences with animals here at the Zoo help make the far away more familiar and keep us from taking for granted the wildlife that live in our own backyard."
Just beyond the splash zone, there's fun in the sun with inflatables for kids (bounce house and slide), a giant sandbox, specialty gift shop, interactive sea lion photo opportunities* and pool party-inspired food and beverage. It's a sea of fun for everyone!
Admission to Sea Lion Splash is $2 per person in addition to Zoo general admission.
