  • I like this park. It had rides and great animal attractions. My daughter got to swim with dolphins. This a good size park but not crazy big. Very clean. Nice views of all the animals. You can rent whe...  more »
  • Great time with the family. The kids really loved it and can't wait to go back. I hadn't seen my baby girl so excited when she saw the dolphins. Looking forward to our next trip there.  more »
  • We enjoyed our day at Sea World with our grandson and his parents. The weather was perfect and the park wasn't crowded at all. We got to the park at 10:00am and stayed till close. Our only dissappoint...  more »

  • Very well maintained for an aquarium and park. There really is fun for the whole family and plenty of educational options as well. We went for half the day (no kids) and had a good time and were able to see every exhibit we wanted to. If you can, plan the day so you can see feedings and shows. Talk to park guides/volunteers when they are at an exhibit you're visited. You never know what you may learn!
  • LOVE how festive Sea World is for Christmas! Love how they rescue animals. We just saw the dolphin show with the rescued pilot whale from Japan. Best show ever. Very family friendly and a beautiful place to walk while learning about and appreciating sea animals and other sea life. Nice trees here too!
  • All great except staff. 80% of the employees are just there for a paycheck. Really low moral and very misinformed on policies. One worker was extremely rude. We rented a stroller from your park to use for the day. I asked where I could leave it, as I had to step out to my vehicle real quick and she said "you can leave it over there but if someone takes it then there's nothing I can do about it." I didn't expect for her to keep an eye out on it, so I went back to where they are kept. They were very willing to hold it for me until I returned with no issues. I'm not sure if she was just in a bad mood or because she was pregnant or both but I wasn't impressed. That wasn't the only encounter I had with an employee on that day.
  • Sea world is a place that still seems to be finding itself. I applaud their effort towards conservation and the quality of care they provide to their animals. They are building new rides as well, and have a fun play area for kids in the middle. So it's a sort of marine world meets carnival meets six flags. Fantastic location, good beer selection now that Bud was sold. I wish there was a bit more on the aquarium front but really enjoy the turtle experience and the penguins. Will be be for sure, glad to live nearby.
  • Really had a great time and was one of the highlights of or trip. My kids really enjoyed both the dolphin and whale shows. Really are quite spectacular. The rides were great for my 9 and 10 year olds. The petting areas were great. We did the "swim with the dolphins" which was pretty great. I haven't seen my daughter smile like that for a while!
