SeaWorld San Diego
San Diego, California is home to one of the beautiful locations for SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment, lucky you! Shows, rides, animal interactions, and exhibits are waiting for you, not to mention the shopping, dining, souvenirs, and events! Oh, and even if there’s no rain in the forecast, pack your ponchos…
Do you enjoy high thrill coasters? If so, the Manta is a one-of-a-kind ride in which you can soar, dive, and twist like a ray! There is another portion of the ride that takes an interactive approach where the group can choose to touch the grotto and feed these amazing animals! Shipwreck Rapids is a tube raft ride that is exciting for all ages! While riding a winding river at the heart of a peaceful island, you will swirl, splash, and crash through the playful rapids. Next, plunge into the waterfall and deep cavern where you'll discover mysterious secrets!
There’s a brand new Shamu show in town called One Ocean, and this is one of those times you’re going to pat yourselves on the back for bringing a disposable waterproof camera! But if 25 minutes just wasn’t enough, learn how killer whales are cared for by the SeaWorld training staff at Killer Whales: Up Close. The Killer Whale Education Presentation is a similar experience, but if you can hang around until dark, your group will absolutely love the Shamu nighttime show!
But there’s more to see than killer whales, you must see the Cirque de la Mer show with amazing acrobats and theater effects! If you’d rather see animals perform, the birds, dolphins, and aerialists of Blue Horizons will quickly gain your vote for the best show in just over 20 minutes!
For hands-on opportunities and feeding experiences, head over to Turtle Reef, Dolphin Point, California Tide Pool or Wild Arctic! There are 14 stations to choose from, 12 of which are especially child-friendly!
Before you check SeaWorld off of your itinerary, pick up your very own Shamu at the Shamu Shop, grab a gift at The Turtle Rescue Shop, and some surf wear at Island Traders!
