On Tuesday March 21, 2017, I got to do my very first Trainer For A Day experience at Sea World on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. I was a little nervous at first but I calmed down when the day started….
The day started with a behind-the-scenes look at one of the shows and meet some of the stars of the show then it was off to Sandy Shores Lagoon to take part in our dolphin swim.
Then it was back to Seal Harbour where we got to meet some more of Sea World’s amazing seals – my favourite was a Californian Sea Lion named Elvis
We then got to go take a look at the polar bears – what magnificent animals they are! Hudson came over to take a look – Liya was in her night den having something to eat and came over to look at us as well – then it was off to go and have lunch at the end of that section. We met our trainer up near Penguin Point for a look at Dolphin Beach – and a surprise in the mix! We got to see a mother and calf – what a big surprise!
All in all, a very good day! I have a dream to become a marine mammal trainer and doing this has given my dream a big boost!
