From Feb. 9-18, give your sweetheart the unique present of a kiss from a sea lion.
Mia, a California sea lion, will offer Valentine's smooches at the Aquarium of Niagara at 11:30 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. each day from Feb. 9-18. Each animal encounter includes a special photo.
Other activities at the Aquarium of Niagara include rescue harbor seal presentations, sea lion shows, penguin exhibits and shark feedings.
"We wanted to do something special for Valentine's Day, and there is nothing better than a kiss from Mia for your valentine," said Kelli Golota, a level-two trainer in the marine mammal care department.
The program is priced at $99.95 per couple, and includes admission for two, a sea lion kiss, photo and chocolate. It's a limit of two couples per session, and payment is due at time of reservation. Participants must be 8 years or older and cannot be pregnant. Call 716-285-3575, ext. 201, to make your reservation.
