SeaWorld® San Diego has long been a family favorite for its entertaining marine animals. Plan a multi-day visit to today’s exciting marine park to watch the animal attractions, from otters to orcas and penguins to pinnipeds. Enjoy the many exciting rides, including the Electric Eel roller coaster, with speeds to 60 miles (100 kilometers) per hour and an inverted roll 150 feet (46 meters) in the air. Bayside Skyride offers a gentler ride with magnificent views of Mission Bay.
Marine animals with four flippers as limbs are known as pinnipeds. Enjoy the endless entertainment as these seals and sea lions chatter and cavort during their daily shows. The Sea Rescue show tells how SeaWorld has saved more than 31,000 marine animals during its five decades of operation. SeaWorld Inside Look demonstrates day-to-day care of the rescued animals.
See what’s swimming around in the aquariums throughout SeaWorld San Diego where about 13,000 animals from more than 500 species live. Dolphin Point offers interactions with friendly bottlenose dolphins. Kids love watching the playful antics of the California sea otters at Otter Outlook and the 400 penguins in Penguin Encounter. Glimpse octopuses face-to-face from inside a tube in their aquarium and learn about sharks and turtles. Touch the bat rays in Manta and ride on its double-launch coaster.
Along with daily animal shows, SeaWorld has special celebrations throughout the year. From Lunar New Year and the Seven Seas Food Festival in the spring to Halloween and Christmas, the park offers special food and themed activities. Watch the magical Sesame Street Party Parade on weekends between early May and Labor Day. Bioluminescent lighting and music create fantastic experiences on select summer evenings.
