  • An out of the world experience! The Electric Eel ride is a thrilling ride albeit a short one. I absolutely love the Manta ride. But the main attractions are the live shows. It boggles my mind the way they train and take care of the mammals and the animals! I can feel the dedication of all the people working with the animals here. The shows were so entertaining especially the sea lions and otter show! They try to put together a parody of TV shows and movies. Absolutely wonderful! The dolphins and the killer whales were a treat to watch. I have been here twice and I was not disappointed both the times! Definitely give it a visit when you are in San Diego
  • The Christmas stuff was awesome. I love the light posts dressed as tropical snowmen. And there's a baby dolphin right now that is so tiny and cute! None of the lines were long at all. It seemed very empty for the first hour or so. It was a great day. There is a lot to learn. It is like a perfect combination of entertainment and learning.
  • This was an evening visit to the park to enjoy the Christmas lights and see the Holiday Musical performance. the performance was absolutely great. It does have a Christian theme, so if that offends you, you have been warned. The songs and story were fun and all of my kids enjoyed and watched it all. I am a big fan of Sea World and recommend it to everyone.
  • We definitely enjoy SeaWorld! And highly recommend for families The park is not crowded and it makes it more enjoyable for families with little ones, Summer time does get a little more crowd. My son who is on the spectrum LOVES and is Obsessed with Marine life, All my boys enjoy the shows and kids rides are perfect, Lines are not long at all the environment is very clean and friendly staff.
  • The man made wonder is sure to lure you..
