Three Fun Things to do at SeaWorld this Summer

We attended as a guest of SeaWorld

Some of my favorite memories as a child were spent at SeaWorld San Diego. When my children were little, we would visit SeaWorld on a regular basis until I felt a lot of the pressures from friends and family to cease going to the theme park because of the negative documentary that was released. Unfortunately, I stopped bringing my children to SeaWorld for many years without taking the time to consider all the conservation and animal rescue efforts that SeaWorld does for animals.

I brought my children to SeaWorld San Diego for the first time that they could remember last year, and went on a behind-the-scenes tour where I learned all about the good that SeaWorld does for animals. They have a massive rescue and rehabilitation facility where they care for sick/injured animals with the goal of releasing them back into the wild. Did you know that SeaWorld has rescued more than 30,000 animals? During that visit, my children fell in love with SeaWorld and wanted to spend more time learning about the animals that live at SeaWorld and the animals that live in our oceans.

This summer, we returned to SeaWorld to find the family destination had become even better than before. There are more educational shows, attractions, and opportunities for children to get up close with beautiful animals. I encourage families to have an open mind about SeaWorld and find out this summer how much SeaWorld does for animals while creating lifelong memories together. When visiting SeaWorld with your family, these are three fun things that I recommend doing during your visit.

Orca Encounter
It isn’t the Orca show that I remembered as a child where the whales were doing tricks and swimming with their trainers, but it has become an immersive educational experience. SeaWorld is no longer breeding Orca’s and is focusing their energy on loving and caring for the Orca’s that still live at SeaWorld. The beautiful animals make an appearance during the education show, swimming freely in their tank while the breeders educate children on the whales. During the show, my children and I learned so much about Orcas. For those who loved getting a little wet during the Orca show, there is still some water flying!

Ocean Explorer
One of my kid’s favorite additions to SeaWorld San Diego is the Ocean Explorer. The section of the theme park has five new children’s rides, and three new animal encounters. Most of the rides are focused towards younger children, but the Tentacle Twirl is my teens favorite new SeaWorld San Diego attraction. If your children enjoy getting up close with animals, they have an opportunity to see a massive octopus and a super cool Japanese spider crab.

Electric Ocean
SeaWorld San Diego isn’t just about daytime entertainment but has fantastic evening activities. During Electric Ocean your family can see a spectacular show, visit different glow stations throughout the park and dance the night away at a dance party. I recommend packing a jacket for your kids because they are not going to want to miss the evening fun.

Along with these three fun things to do at SeaWorld San Diego, there is also a wide variety of entertaining shows, animal encounters, and delicious cuisine. Your family will love spending a day at SeaWorld San Diego this summer, and you can make a staycation out of your visit by spending the night at a local resort like the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort.

  19. I haven’t been to Sea World in ages, and it would be so great to be able to take my granddaughters who are living with us to see all the sea life you have. The last time I was there was with my parents who have since passed on, and we got pearls and had them made into rings. It would be such a wonderful experience for my granddaughters to experience, and to have the change to win is wonderful, as it is impossible for my husband and I to afford to take them.
