  • We spent one day while visiting San Diego in July 2018. It was fun. We watched the shows and we were impressed with them and all of the efforts these coaches put into this. The place also has rides so...  more »
  • We were here 4 times in a weeks stay. All I can say is the trainers and staff go out of their way to help people and take care of the animals. We were lucky enough to meet one of the dolphin trainers ...  more »

  • Great fun for the entire family! The animal shows were entertaining and educational. They also have hands on exhibits you can interact with the marine life. The Electric Eel roller coaster is a new attraction! That was a fun ride to go on! They have rides for most age groups, so no one feels left out. Plenty of restaurants throughout the park, with a good selection of different foods to cater to everyone. Prices for food is decent, not expensive like other parks. I highly recommend it for a fun family trip!
  • San Diego is always very relaxing to visit. Coming to Sea world is very fun for our toddler's. The beautiful colors and having lunch with Elmo will always be in our memories because of their expressions on their faces. The Orcha shows was excellent and the weather was great. The animals appeared to be in great health and the shows we were able to see were enjoyable and educational at the same time. The toddler area is very well designed for little one's and separated from the other areas which was nice. Great experience
  • very beautiful attractions would require more areas of shade. The shipwreck was quite exhausting for 2 hours in line under the sun and came out quite wet so I advise not to do it at the end of the day. We bought only one bracelet for free meals but have the limit of one order per hour. We were two adults and two kids and we loved it anyway. The cost is $38 for a bracelet. We stayed at the "Calypso Bay Smokehouse" restaurant and it was really good. I recommend the trio of examples in order to taste everything. Their fries are among the best ever eaten to date. The park seems small but you will spend the whole day. We did not try the fast-pass but I must say that in some cases they are useful especially if the boys want to repeat the races several times. Parking costs $22 and we did not have any problems. There are water dispensers near the restrooms so do not throw away the empty bottles. The evening is colored all of a thousand lights and is also very beautiful.
  • Took my 2 year old to Sea World for the first time. We had a great time. She loved the Sesame Street characters and the dolphin/orca shows. We got the all day meal plan and the food was decent but the lines were crazy. Took an hour waiting in line to get our food. Next time we'll bring our own food or just pay to eat somewhere else. The food lines were not worth the daily meal pass, especially with an impatient 2 year old.
  • This amusement park is so much fun! The animals are amazing, healthy, and friendly. I had broken my toe previous my visit so I had to use a scooter and they had many options for me to choose from and even provided me with a map that had routes to go all around the park and showed which routes were too steep. I was able to see all the animals in their habitats because they provided a ramp for me to roll on. Overall it was a great experience and would suggest anyone of any age to enjoy it.
