Adorable? You bet. But sea lions are also some of the smartest animals around, in or out of the water. They're one of the few species that can respond to simple commands and physical signals. They've even been trained by the U.S. Navy to detect and locate enemy divers approaching American ships.
Your sea lion swim isn't such serious business, of course. We just want you to know that there's a lot more going on behind those big dark eyes than you might think.
The grand finale of your swim is the height of Awww: you getting a big wet kiss from the sea lion, preserved forever in a photograph. Too much for a first date? A flipper bump will do.
Lions on the move
The sea lions you'll meet will be in a more relaxed mood, but when given some space in the water and the proper motivation, these guys can really haul. A sea lion swimming at top speed can reach 25 mph – over five times faster than Olympic gold-medal swimmer Michael Phelps, on his best day.
