With special holiday-themed animal shows, real snow, live reindeer, Santa and more, SeaWorld is the place to be this Christmas season. SeaWorld's Christmas Celebration takes place November 15, 2014 through January 4, 2015.

  • New! - Shamu Christmas Miracles: Shamu and friends celebrate the holidays with music and merriment, a female vocalist and (on select dates) a community choir. Shamu Stadium transforms into a winter wonderland with new lighting, music, fountains and Christmas scenes on the 80-foot-wide LED screens.
  • New! - Dolphin Island Christmas: This brand new Christmas-themed dolphin show will celebrate the holidays with a tropical twist. Dolphins, pilot whales and macaws perform amazing athletic feats. Divers and dancers get into the spirit as well during this daytime show at Blue Horizons Stadium.
  • New! - Santa's Christmas Village: This magical, holiday area is brimming with Christmas fun! Guests can mingle with Christmas characters, enjoy a sweet treat such as a waffle-on-a-stick, and, on select dates, get a photo with Santa. Plus, Mrs. Claus invites everyone to bring their Christmas cheer to help her light a festive 40-foot tree. 
  • Clyde & Seamore's Christmas Special: SeaWorld's prankster-loving pinnipeds Clyde and Seamore have a hilarious holiday time in this Christmas-themed sea lion and otter show. 
  • SnowWorld: This winter wonderland at Arctic Plaza provides festive fun for the whole family including lots of snow, hills for the little ones to sled down and a snowball target area.
  • The Pets Rule Christmas: A specially-themed show featuring the shelter-adopted stars of the park's Pets Rule! show. As the winter season begins, the pets partake in holiday hijinks. 
  • Reindeer Training Academy: On the lawn in front of Animal Connections, the Reindeer Training Academy features real reindeer for guests to meet up-close!
  • Holiday Atmosphere: SeaWorld will be decked out more than ever before, with more than one million holiday lights and a 40-foot tree with an animated light show. Outside Pets' Playhouse, guests will find the Cat's Christmas Parlor, where the feline stars of Pets Rule! hang out in their own Christmas-themed house. Plus, Southern California's largest Christmas tree - SeaWorld's 320-foot Christmas Tree of Lights - shines bright above the whole park from dusk to midnight.
