Schooling Seals and Polar Bears
This VIP Tour visits the behind scenes areas managed for three marine mammal species—Polar Bears, Seals, and Sea Lions. Early in your tour, you will enter the rear of the seal - sea lon habitat and share that space with the animals while they participate in a training session with their caretakers. Next, you will head off to see a Polar Bear up close and see how its caretakers provide for its care by using rewards to elicit its trust and cooperation. This tour lasts an hour to an hour and a half.
