I heard the Shamu show is ending at the end of this year so if you want to go, now's the time. This park is easy to walk through and the shows are awesome. We LOVED the acrobat show, though i can't remember what it's exactly called... and the pet show with dogs was amazing! (I know dogs at sea... More

We actually came to San Diego to visit the Zoo - but SeaWorld was that attraction that justified the trip. We arrived early in the day to make sure we catch as many of the attractions and shows and managed to see them all. Lot's of fun - especially the Whales. Highly recommended - a must for SD visitiors.

We go to do the late night or can show as well as ride all the rides and see most of the exhibits, yet still ran out of time to hit them all. The children loved their time there. You do not have to spend a TON as you can get a free refill cup and share that as well... More

Myself and my family of 4 (kids aged 7 & 4yrs) visited SeaWorld on two separate days and we absolutely loved it! Firstly, I believe that SeaWorld gets a bad rap from the activists and because of that documentary. I agree that it's wrong to breed Orcas in captivity, and there's no way their tanks are comparable to the ocean... More

Four adults and two children ages 2 1/2 and 6 . We started with the sensory part of touching baby sharks, stingrays and horse shoe crabs. Then it was off to watch the whale show we sat in the splash area :-) What a show not only were the whales beautiful but we got to learn about them . They... More

We loved the shows, but the "Aquarium" animals and attractions were less than impressive. seemed like everyone wanted to ride the Manta roller coaster rather than pet the sharks or feed the sea lions. I was surprised at how low budget Seaworld's exhibits were compared to the Newport Aquarium in Oregon. HOWEVER, the whale and dolphin and sea lion shows... More

See World San Diego is the best theme park in Southern California. The shows are fabulous. The work that Sea World does with sea life is tremendous. The trainers are amazing and the Shamu show is the highlight. Be sure you go this year because the Shamu show will be discontinued next year. Highly recommend Sea World to anyone visiting... More

One of my favorite attractions in San Diego. You can see how they care for and respect the animals. Where else can you learn and get up close to these incredible creatures in such a beautiful setting.
