"Wonderful day of fun!"
April 2024
My two boys and I spent a day at Sea World. They are 12&16. There is so much to do there from the killer whale, dolphin, and seal shows to lots of fun rides. The exhibits are beautiful and animals seem well taken care of. The weather is always perfect in San Diego. We sat in the wet zone for the killer whale show and got wet. Super fun and you dry off quickly. There are lots of people but there’s so much to do it doesn’t create a problem. We did wait quite a long time for just one ride. The rest of the wait times were 20 min or less. We loved the whole experience.
