A visit to SeaWorld San Diego makes an ocean of a difference. Over the last 55 years, SeaWorld’s esteemed Rescue Team has rescued and returned more than 38,000 animals found ill, injured or stranded along the beaches of the local coastline. Behind the scenes at SeaWorld, passionate zoological team members care for these animals in an effort to rehabilitate and return them to the wild, giving them a second chance at life. A portion of every guest’s park visit goes to SeaWorld’s rescue and conservation efforts.
Experience the heart-pounding thrills of Electric Eel, a multi-launch coaster with high-energy twists, electrifying loops and inversions, or Manta, with two thrilling launches that send riders soaring and diving in the spirit of world’s largest ray. Make a splash and cool off on Shipwreck Rapids! For kid-friendly fun, families are invited to enjoy Tentacle Twirl, Sea Dragon Drop, Octarock and Aqua Scout, plus Elmo's Flying Fish, Oscar’s Rockin’ Eel, and Abby’s Sea Star Spin located in Sesame Street® Bay of Play!
Stroll through over 100 acres of beautiful park grounds filled with incredible animal exhibits including orcas, belugas, otters, walruses, sharks, sea turtles, bat rays, sea lions, pilot whales, penguins, dolphins, flamingos, eels, tropical birds and more.
For those who want to get even closer to marine life, SeaWorld's reservation-only animal encounters can be a dream come true. The Dolphin Encounter is a poolside experience that allows participants to touch and interact with bottlenose dolphins; or, for a change of pace, slow things down with a Sloth Encounter, a one-of-a-kind chance to meet a two-toed sloth up close.
