    I am going on the Bohemian Disney Cruise. My granddaughter wants to do the sea lion adventure. I see you only get 15 minutes with the sea lion. Is it worth the money?

    Ahoy, Deborah!

    It sounds like you have a very special sailing planned for you and your granddaughter. In my opinion, the gift of experience is the best type of gift to give especially when it's a Disney Cruise vacation! The two of you will create some magical memories both on the ship and while in port that you'll cherish for a lifetime!

    Selecting Port Adventures is always tricky for me because there is a lot to consider-price, duration and activity level. I have not done the Blue Lagoon Island Sea Lion Encounter, but I've done a dolphin encounter that was similar. The time with the sea lions is brief, but you'll get to interact by hugging, kissing, feeding and petting these adorable mammals. You'll get to learn about them before you get wet, and there will be photos taken that will be available for purchase, which will make a wonderful souvenir. With this excursion, you'll also enjoy the scenic views on the boat ride over and time to swim and play on the beautiful beach. The protected lagoon is pretty spectacular! 

    If you are still hesitant about the interaction time, you may want to look into reserving the Blue Lagoon Island Beach Day because there is a place to view the sea lions and dolphins in their natural habitat and that may just be enough for your granddaughter. She won't get the hands-on experience, but will still get to see them up-close. If you book the beach day, you'll get to experience all the island has to offer with a delicious lunch included. You could use the money you save to rent one of the kayaks or water bikes!

    I hope I've steered you in the right direction, Deborah! Please write back if we can assist you with any additional questions.
