Harbor Seal Encounter at Gulf World Marine Park
Get up close and personal with a harbor seal! You'll get in the water with these amazing creatures as you get to know...
The harbor seal encounter was excellent. Staff was very informative and friendly. The only problem I had was with the fact that there were no pictures allowed except for the ones taken by their staff. Otherwise excellent experience. I cant remember the last time I saw my teenager with as genuine a smile as she had during this event.
Checking into the park was easy. The park is mostly covered so if you're worried about getting wet on a rainy day, I wouldn't. There's trees and overhanging roofs, we stayed dry. The meet and greet with the seals was wonderful! The staff takes alot of time out to explain so much about training and ecology and biology... it's so amazing. It was such a great experience and we are so glad we bought the photo package! Do this!
The Gulf World Marine tour was by far the most fun I have had in a LONG time. I am 53 and when I got kissed by a sea lion AND a seal I was 5 years old again. I felt and acted like a child. LOL.. The shows are amazing to watch and the staff are so knowledgeable. I learned a lot about our marine life. I am going back again and swim with the dolphins when i can. Can't wait.
