Crew were polite, informative and safety aware. The boat was fantastic and due to size it allowed for brilliant viewing no matter what deck you were on. Staff gave interesting facts and answered all questions.

As I recall we were able to visit SeaWorld the day before, the same day as the tour or up to 2 days after the tour. You can find this information on their website under FAQs. Enjoy your tour.
