  • SeaWorld is a good day out for the family however it is quite simply way over priced. There are a lot of better places to visit in San Diego that are 1/4 of the price. If my friends were travelling to...  more »
  • Went on a weekend, surprisingly quiet which was really nice. We made it to all the shows, definitely the highlight of the day at this park. No lines for the rides so got to basically go on all of them...  more »

  • We went to sea world to do the poolside interaction with the beluga whales. Unfortunately, that is no longer available. The representative, Tina, called the trainer to see if there was anything that they could do for us. Eric said yes & took us poolside for free!
  • My family and I love SeaWorld! We go there all the time and it's always an amazing experience. The park is very clean and there's plenty of space. During the summer months If you stay at Paradise Point or Mission Bay Hyatt you can actually take a water taxi which will take you through the back entrance ... not only is this really cool but the 10-20 min boat ride is spectacular! Ignore all the $hit talkers and SeaWorld haters...the park is well worth your time money and photos.
  • SeaWorld was great. The attractions were all amazing. We got to see almost every show and do almost every ride. The park was small enough to cover it in one day but not so small that you felt it was a waste of time. Definitely a good place to take younger kids to.
  • What an amazing place! The SeaWorld staff is such an amazing and friendly group of people! I've never felt more at home. The animals really touch your heart deeply and make you really care about them. There will never be a better vacation place than SeaWorld San Diego. I recommend SWSD to anyone who wants to be able to have a fun, inspiring, and fin-tastic day!
  • Loved it. I participated in the dolphin interactive program. I did not like walking through the park in the wet suits ( as I looked like a whale on land). I wish there were a few more rides accommodating the larger visitor. Had a great time.
