Marine Theater Trainers And Sea Lions
Foxwoods Marine Theater

Mystic Aquarium’s California sea lions are the star of every presentation! Our staff dedicates themselves tirelessly to the well-being of our animals. While we are proud that educational information on sea lions is delivered with your entertainment in mind, many of the behaviors exhibited by the animals in the presentation are an important part of animal care and enrichment.  The husbandry behaviors you see also enable our animal care professionals to provide regular health assessments and medical care.

Sea Lion Presentations take place weekdays at 11:30am, 1:30pm & 3:30pm.

The Foxwoods Marine Theater is open for walk-through viewing only on weekends.
