What better way to cool off in this crazy heat than a little dip in the ocean? Beneath the Sea is the traveling show with sea lions, rays, sharks, and even a mermaid! Found near Red Gate, behind Thunder Alley, this is a world of adventure.
Watch sea lions cavort and play in the several daily shows that go on, courtesy of trainers Xania and Jimmy. According to Xania, the show is actually a sea lion rescue that focuses on entertaining crowds while the performers educate you a little bit about the difference between seals and sea lions, and the importance of recycling. One lovely show girl is a South American sea lion that enjoys hamming for the camera and performing for big crowds!
Pet a real live Atlantic ray, and talk a little bit with their handler, Joe, about the care and keeping of these wonderful creatures. For the last few years, Joe and his family have brought fair guests the wonders of these little critters, which you can touch and view up close. This show is a rescue, too. Joe rescues the rays from shrimping boats in the Gulf of Mexico, tours them for eight to nine months, and then releases them back into the wild!
Gaze in awe at the sharks, swimming in their tanks, and take a picture or two with the resident mermaid! She’s available for pictures after her educational show in a wonderfully cool misty grotto.
