We travel quite a bit and love, love, love Seaworld! Seaworld it's not. But compared to other aquariums it's pretty awesome. Save time and buy tickets on line and pick up at will call. You'll be given a time you can enter. We went during spring break and it was packed.
It's clean and the exhibits are well done. It's set up to bring you smoothly through map or not. The jellies exhibit is really neat and over near the dolphin show. The dolphin show shouldn't be missed though its rather short it is interesting. If you sit in the soak zone you will get wet. Front three rows soaked. Loved the 4d show there are two. Know that the last show for one of the two shows offered will be 230ish. If you have kids see both shows they are only 15 minutes but kids love it. Really little ones 3 or less were scared of ,i think, Creatures of the deep and would do better at Happy Feet. You get one show with the upgraded ticket you have to buy the other one once you enter the actual aquarium. I think it was $3 no big deal. This place is terrible in a crowd. They are slow first thing in the morning and after 4. Weekends are pretty busy.
Lots of good restaurants nearby. Parking stinks and is expensive so allow plenty of time. Walking distance to Cheesecake Factory, pizza UNO , McCormick and Schmick,, Ruth's Chris,, just tons of places. There are boats in port you can tour, I think four. We toured two you can get combined tickets for less than one at a time at the kiosk near the Aquarium. The submarine was most interesting for our 11 yr old son. You can make an entire day 9am to 9pm out of this easily. Between the aquarium and the harbor shops and restaurants. There is some outdoor seating too if the weather is nice. Lots of fun!
