Our Celebrity Photo Album

Over the years we have had a lot of famous people come visit our animals.  Even though most celebrities are used to special treatment everywhere they go, most really get excited when they have to opportunity to meet our stars.  

(To see a larger version, just click on the small thumbnail photos below)


Shatner&KW91001.jpg (42024 bytes)Hey, isn't that Captain Kirk (William Shatner) kissing that killer whale! Well, why not? Over the years he's kissed quite a few beautiful alien ladies...and this one's a real sweet heart. 



ScottyZc1a.jpg (56744 bytes)Can't forget "Scotty", actor James Doohan.  While he seems a little more shy than the captain (note the hands in the pockets), he still seems to enjoy exchanging smiles with a friendly sea lion. (Note: some faces are blurred to protect the privacy of celebrity families and friends.) 


EMurphyZc1a.jpg (54412 bytes)Eddie Murphy and his family stop by back stage after a sea lion show to say "hi" to all the critters and trainers.  (Note: some faces are blurred to protect the privacy of celebrity families and friends.) 




HLewisZc1.jpg (50205 bytes)Most of the celebrities that meet the animals really get into it.  Singer Huey Lewis showed his great sense of humor hamming it up with a sea lion with a big talent for big grins. 



MMcGuireZc1.jpg (62833 bytes)Sports stars also are known to stop by for a critter "meet and greet" from time to time.  One the biggest names in baseball, Mark McGwire gets a kiss from a sea lion.  Congratulations, no doubt, for his record breaking career. 


HockeyZc1.jpg (69035 bytes)Hockey legend, Doug Wilson gives a sea lion star a pat on the back for his own stellar performance. 



And now for a classic:

B&WElvis61001b.jpg (64831 bytes)This is probably our favorite celebrity trainer photo of all time.  Here is the "king" himself, Elvis Presley feeding a fish to a false killer whale (Pseudorca crassidens) at Marineland of the Pacific.  Marineland was located in Los Angeles, CA from 1955 to 1987. Being so close to Hollywood it was visited by a bunch of famous people and served as a location for quite a few movies and TV shows. This photo was probably taken in the early 1960s. Man, check out the cool shoes!
