The Sea Lion Presentation is Back!

Presented by:
Our beloved California sea lions have returned! Truist Pier 225’s live presentation, Under the Boardwalk, features Georgia Aquarium’s incredible California sea lions. These highly social pinnipeds and their dedicated trainers will show you how they work together — and why this is such an important part of animal care at Georgia Aquarium — in a live training session.

To allow for proper social distancing in the Truist Pier 225 Theater, seating is very limited and is first come, first served. You will be able to reserve your seat for the Sea Lion presentation at no cost when you are on site or by using our seat reservation system by clicking the link on the right on the day of your visit.
