When planning to see a Shamu show be sure to arrive to the stadium early especially if you want to sit in the Soak Zone. We enjoyed lunch at the Shipwreck Reed Cafe, a little pricey but the food was well worth it.

Sea World is a large rambling park based on a confusing maze like layout. The maps unfortunately are only available at one point, at the gate, so if you do not get a map when you arrive bad luck. You will be struggling to find your way for the rest of your stay.
The Orca and dolphin shows are good.

Of all the things we did in San Diego, Sea World was our second fave, behind the USS Midway. We walked to Sea World from our hotel at the Bahia (an easy 15 minute walk), with our 3 year old in a stroller. Pay the entry fee and enjoy all the park has to offer. Orcas, Beluga whales, the Madagascar show (all awesome)! Our highlight was the Blue Horizon dolphin show; powerful and emotional, a bucket list to do that wasn't on our bucket list! I downloaded the Sea World iPhone app to help get around; it worked great as long as I kept on top of it, it kept our location and direction fine until the phone display went to sleep, then a reset was required. Did I mention Blue Horizon dolphin show? It was awesome; not only dolphins, but the actors, music, water jets and a surprise appearance by another species of ocean life.... Well done!

We visit Seaworld Australia regularly and expected it to be better. The dolphin show was impressive, but didn't feature many dolphins. Ok but not as good as we expected.

More than a nice aquarium and sea life zoo - the shows are fantatic even for grown ups. The parc is very big and well kept. It is a perfect place for a nice day out with the family. Pricey but a must see
