My encounter with Bonnie the sea lion was amazing! The trainer brought us out into the sea lion area and Bonnie swam back and forth, allowing us to touch her back, she showed us her fingernails (yes, sea lions have fingernails) and her teeth. She clapped her flippers when we clapped for her and smiled. The trainer obviously has worked a lot with Bonnie. After the encounter in the water, we went onto land and posed for photos. Yes, the photos are overpriced, and yes, I felt compelled to buy a photo because it's just so darn sweet, but I had such a great time that I didn't mind. Highly recommend this activity on Blue Lagoon Island!
