Makaia is the princess of the group. She was the first sea lion born at Oceans of Fun in 1993 and is a very special animal. She is very energetic and curious. Always eager to meet the public, Makaia thrives on attention! She enjoys performing and is a favorite during our daily public presentations and interactive programs. She is currently 19 years old and has mothered five pups. Makaia welcomed Colby, her fifth pup this past summer. She is a great mother always looking after Colby, teaching him to swim and explore in his new home. As one of our veterans, Makaia helps to keep all of the youngsters in line and can often be seen sunning herself poolside with a couple of juveniles curled up along her side.
