SeaWorld is a world-famous tourist attraction in San Diego that is renowned for its shows featuring your favorite ocean creatures. SeaWorld San Diego was opened on March 21, 1964, by Milton C. Shedd, Ken Norris, David Demott and George Millay. In 1989 the Anheuser-Busch Company purchased the entire chain of 6 SeaWorld parks and invested many millions of dollars to revive and prolong their longevity.

SeaWorld contains zoological displays featuring hundreds of different species of fish as well as many other attractions such as:

 

  • Shark Encounter, one of the most popular attractions in which guests are carried through one of the world’s largest underwater viewing tunnels to experience a rare, fascinating, up-close look at prehistoric predators whose ancestors dominated the sea more than a hundred million years before dinosaurs walked the earth.

  • Blue Horizons, where dolphins fly, birds dive, and spirits leap in a visionary sea and sky spectacular. Soaring birds, playful dolphins, dramatic pilot whales and thrilling aerialists fuse the vibrant energy of two fascinating worlds into a mesmerizing display of dance, flight, color and entertainment.

  • Journey to Atlantis, a water ride that combines soaking flume fun, thrilling roller coaster action and amazing special effects while visitors journey to a lost civilization. The journey begins with a splashy 60-ft. plunge and ends face-to-face with fascinating Commerson's dolphins.

  • Shipwreck Rapids, in which people ride in a tube style raft on a winding river at the heart of a peaceful island. The ride whirls, swirls, splashes and crashes through playful rapids and foaming whitewater, and then it plunges through a waterfall into a secret underground cavern.

  • Sesame Street Bay of Play, where children can explore two acres of childhood magic with their favorite characters from Sesame Street. It’s filled with family friendly fun and rides like Elmo’s Flying Fish, Oscar’s Rocking Eel and Abby’s Sea Star Spin. Children can even have their picture taken with their Sesame Street friends.

  • Wild Arctic, a simulated helicopter ride to the Arctic. After the ride, guests arrive at a simulated base station where they can observe polar bears, Pacific walruses and beluga whales.

 SeaWorld is about 80 miles south of Costa Mesa.
