unnamed (12)Atlantis, The Palm’s newest attraction, Sea Lion Point, is now offering an extraordinary, new programme, Sea Lion Discovery.  The programme allows guests to enjoy a unique aquatic interaction with one of the world’s most charming mammals, the South African Fur Seal.  

Under the supervision of Marine Mammal Specialists, Sea Lion Discovery participants are invited to wade into waist deep water to share a number of behaviours, including whiskery kisses, cuddles and one-on-one time, whilst learning what makes these marine mammals so unique.  Because the interaction takes place in shallow water, non-swimmers are also welcome to participate. unnamed (13)
