"Sea World San Diego"
February 2023
The shows ( Sea Lion, Dolphin and Orca) were great to take in as were the interactive and narrated activities. The weather was cooler and several rides were not operating. Check which rides are running before you go.

"All Was perfect"
January 2023
Before buying the tickets on tripster, I bought them on another page, without receiving the tickets until 2 or 3 days later, so I decided to cancel them and buy them on another site, now being on tripster, and wow, very fast, cheap and at the moment the tickets arrived, and everything went smoothly. I would buy again without thinking.
Greetings from Mexico
