Marineland is still alive and well north of the border and I am glad, because back when my family visited it back in the 1980s we had a great time. I did not get licked by an Orca, but I did get to shake hands with a seal, an event I would repeat at a Florida theme park as well. What can I say, I am one with the Seals. I am Sealman!
When you think Marine-themed vacation hot spots, you might think of Orlando’s Sea World, but my family preferred the frozen Canadian marine mammals of Marineland. I have no idea why I kept this back for nearly 20 years, but it I found it folded up in a book last night and just thought I would share.
If memory serves me right, the highlight of my trip was this big open pen full of dear that you could feed. It was awesome if you liked being molested by 400 dear at the same time for your seed cone. I was a different person when I left that pen. Older — damaged.
