A must visit place with kids. The whale show and the sea lion show is ultimate. Has ample parking outside this place The joy ride named Atlantis is too good to resist. Kids will just love it.

My daughter and I visited in October and kids got in free so I used that money and did the dolphin encounter and lunch with shamoo. What a gret experience was the Dolphins we got to feed them, pat them and do tricks with them it was amazing. The meal that game with the lunch with shamoo was so lovely.... More

Very disappointed that there were only 3 shows and only one show daily. 3D show closed. Ski and boat show closed. Other area closed. The cost of $84 was expensive, why did they not discount the admission by 30 percent? Parking was expensive. I just think they should have an off season pricking policy.

Fantastic place. Ideal for families, friends and couples. Very well organised. A lot of exhibitions and attractions. A little bit expensive (80$) but there are possibilities to have discounts buying the ticket in the hotel or online. The food is overpriced and not very appealing for a european.

This was even better than I thought it would be. My two year old loved the shows, and the interaction of feeding the seals. We will be back for sure!!

This is my first visit to SeaWorld San Diego and my first so visit to an attraction. The only negative of the day was that when I arrived at the theme park for a 10am opening( which was what was on the website on Sunday of that week) I found the park had changed open time until 11! I was... More

I'd say that it's quite overpriced and that kept me from giving 5 points to it.The admission for adults is 86 and 80 for children.So,I'd recommend to buy the pass for Sea World and the zoo online which saves money if you stay there at least for a few days.The food is very overpriced too,so better take some sandwiches with...

SeaWorld is so fun to walk around in. So many sea life you can touch and feed. It's not so busy that you are being pushed around. Rides do not have a long wait either. The shows are fantastic and keep you interested. Going back in Jan. I live in Las Vegas, only wish I lived closer I'd go back... More

I had gone in the past a few times and every time there was at least one attraction closed. This time everything was open and the showtimes were spaced out so that you could get to them all without running to the other side of the park. It was my kids first time and he loved it. Don't forget the... More

We spent the day at Sea World and really loved it. We started off with Breakfast with Shamu and this was the best part of our day by far. The buffet meal was wonderful and the private show was awesome. We were so close to the whales and we felt that this was actually better than the One Ocean show... More
