Surf beyond your expectations as the sea comes alive at night and dive into Electric Ocean, SeaWorld's all-new summer nighttime celebration.
Spread across 190 acres on beautiful Mission Bay Park, SeaWorld is known for its amazing animals, interactive attractions, aquariums, rides, beautiful landscaping and education programs for all ages.
Unforgettable experiences begin immediately at SeaWorld's new, interactive arrival experience, Explorer's Reef. Guests enter under an iconic wave sculpture and are immediately immersed into an undersea adventure where they can touch a shark, interact with a ray and feel tiny cleaner fish gently nibble at their hands.
SeaWorld’s family of killer whales are ambassadors of the sea and can be seen in a whole different light at All Day Orca Play, an unprecedented all-day, every day experience starting March 18 at SeaWorld San Diego. All Day Orca Play will deliver exclusive encounters with killer whales through a full day of events and activities.
In SeaWorld's island-inspired Dolphin Days show, guests are immersed in the world of marine mammals. Dolphin Days combines spectacular dolphin and pilot whale behaviors with a close-up look at the animals and the special relationship they have with their trainers.
For the thrill seekers, SeaWorld has Journey to Atlantis, Shipwreck Rapids and of course Manta, SeaWorld's double-launch, multi-media roller coaster. For a relaxing, serene experience, there's Turtle Reef, where guests can see dozens of sea turtles swimming in their 280,000-gallon habitat. And for laughter and silly fun, California sea lions Clyde and Seamore show off with their trainers in Sea Lions LIVE.
For those who want to get even more up close to some of the ocean's most fascinating creatures, SeaWorld's animal encounters can be a dream come true: the Dolphin Interaction Program allows guests to feed, touch and play with bottlenose dolphins; and the Beluga Interaction Program is a unique chance to enter the water with beluga whales, gentle giants known as "sea canaries" for their bird-like vocalizations.
New waves of excitement are coming ashore at SeaWorld San Diego this year, including Orca Encounter, an inspiring presentation that will give you a deeper appreciation of orcas as you learn about their hunting techniques and complex communication codes. Also arriving this summer is Ocean Explorer, a new attraction with multiple aquariums, exciting rides and digital technologies to offer a one-of-a-kind experience centered on exploration and adventure. Meanwhile, Electric Ocean, a new nighttime summer celebration, will light up the park after dark. Voyage into exotic underwater worlds that come alive as the sun sets with brilliant energy, electrifying dance music, and dazzling light.
With all the fun happening inside SeaWorld, guests may not know what goes on behind the scenes, where zoological team members are caring for rescued animals that were found ill, injured or stranded on beaches along the San Diego coastline. Over the last 50 years, SeaWorld San Diego's Rescue Team has taken in and cared for more than 17,000 animals. The goal of the rescue program is to rescue, rehabilitate and return animals to the wild, giving them a second chance at life.
