SeaWorld San Diego Information

No San Diego vacation is complete without visiting the world-famous SeaWorld San Diego. Located at Mission Bay, the marine park and oceanarium is a favorite among children and adults alike. The 200 acre park is filled with animal attractions, rides, shows, shopping and dining. Enough to keep everyone entertained all day.

The park is easily accessible by public transportation from downtown San Diego. The park is usually open from 10:00am-6:00pm on the weekdays and from 10:00-7:30 on the weekends. Tickets can be purchased online or at the ticket booth on-site. Upon entry visitors are given an easy-to-read map complete with show-times for the day.

The park was founded in 1964 with the intention of becoming an underwater restaurant. That vision evolved into the spectacular, interactive, park it is today. Over the decades, the park has become a well-loved staple of San Diego visitors.

SeaWorld offers up-close encounters with many of the animals it showcases. Visitors are encouraged to roll up their sleeves to touch a variety of wildlife, including dolphins. Employees take animals of all kinds out for petting on the grassy area outside the Animal Attraction area. The animals vary throughout the day, so be sure to walk by often and see what's out and about.

Several shows are put on throughout each day, giving visitors a chance to see these incredible animals in action. The dolphin show includes gravity-defying acrobatics performed by dolphins and humans alike. The famous killer whale show is a long-running favorite. The marine life shows include a splash zone where viewers can expect a decent dousing from the playful animals. There is also plenty of dry seating available.

There are a variety of rides for all ages inside the park. The Bayside Skyride is a gondola ride that spans the entire park and even cuts out over Mission Bay. It gives riders an excellent aerial view of the park including some of the backstage activates. For the thrill-seekers, Manta is the park's newest ride offering high speeds and huge drops.

SeaWorld San Diego is a once in a lifetime experience. Interacting with live animals, watching their spectacular shows, and rushing through breath-taking rides will surely be remembered fondly for years to come.
