My family was provided with 4 complimentary tickets to Sea World San Diego in exchange for sharing our day with you. All thoughts and opinions of the park are honest and true.
Our family of 7 headed to Sea World San Diego for a day of fun. My husband and I have been to Sea World before but we have never gone with our kids so it would be a new adventure for all of our kids. The weather was great and the crowds were low. We went the last week of August when the majority of California schools are back in session.
As soon as you enter the park there are areas where you can touch and feel the fish.
My boys where quite fond of the cleaner fish. These fish nibble plant and animal matter off solid surfaces like rocks.
They also nibble stuff off your hands. I was not brave enough to stick my hand in that tank, but my boys loved every minute of it.
We found lots of opportunity to hold sea life throughout the park. Here we had the chance to hand sea stars.
We also got the chance to pet stingray, which were kind of slimy.
We chose to pay $5 to feed the stingray. This was a lot of fun!
Sea World is probably most known for their shows! The dolphin show was probably my favorite.
We also saw the One World show in the Shamu Stadium. Before the show started they had all the military personnel stand up and be recognized. Sea World has a program called Waves of Honor where they offer complimentary admission to all active duty military members. How awesome is that?
The shows are fun because they train the animals to splash and splash they do!!
If you don’t want to get wet make sure you avoid the seating with the words “Soak Zone”, but really getting soaked is all part of the fun.
We sat in the first and second rows and got drenched!!
One of our favorite exhibits was the shark exhibit. It was fun to ride an escalator through the shark tank. It was super cool!
My daughter loved watching the turtles.
You will find Sea World also has some great rides. We rode the Manta rollercoaster which was an awesome roller coaster, it was smooth and fast. The loading process was a little lacking, they just let everyone go for whatever spot they wanted so our family wasn’t able to sit together.
I really liked that all the rides really fit the theme of the park. This fun water ride is a perfect example.
We were thrilled to see that they were offering a FREE concert series for Summer while we were there and we got to see Fighting Gravity.
Sea World also has a section for littles ones with rides and a water play area. We don’t have kids this small anymore, but it looked like a great area.
Our family had a fun day at Sea World San Diego. If we end up in San Diego again we look forward to visiting Aquatica by Sea World, my daughter visited this park in Orlando with her friend and she loved it. It was her favorite day of the entire vacation she took with them.
The regular rate for adults is $89 (as of 9/9/15), but you can always check their site for specials. We were able to buy the extra tickets we needed for only $50 each because they were having a special where you could pay a reduced rate if you visited Monday-Friday. That was a super deal. Through October 31, 2015 they are offering a FREE childs ticket with every adult ticket purchased.
