Special Program: Trainer for a Day
A very in-depth experience. You spend 8 hours shadowing a trainer, and learn how they train and care for the animals. Unfortunately they ended this program a few years ago. It was limited to 3 people per day, which allowed a lot of one-on-one time with trainers and animals, and a very different experience each time. They spend time in several animal areas, including whales, dolphins, sea lions, otters, birds.
