- Your chance to jump into a shark tank and come out in one piece!
- Friendly dolphins and playful penguins waiting for you!
- Meet world-famous Shamu, the killer whale
- Are you ready for a polar bear encounter?
There is no place like Sea World! Where else can you touch and feed dolphins, meet killer whales and come face-to-face with a polar bear, all in one day?
Feeling very brave? Then try Shark Encounter, where you will be carried through a submerged acrylic tube right into the sharks' tank. You will be close enough to count the sharks’ teeth!
SeaWorld also features magnificent white beluga whales, sea lions and dolphin shows and a variety of exciting thrill rides. Journey to Atlantis, a combination roller coaster and splashdown ride, is a huge hit with children.
From beginning to end Sea World California is a first-class family adventure.

Enjoy a fun-filled day when you take the Sea World California from Los Angeles excursion. At the start of your trip you will be picked up from your hotel in an air-conditioned coach and driven to San Diego. The journey to San Diego takes around 60-90 minutes depending on the traffic.
At Sea World California, you will enjoy exciting marine life shows filled with fun and mystery including SeaWorld’s star attraction Shamu the Killer Whale. The interactive park allows you to get up close and personal with acrobatic dolphins, sharks and playful penguins and, if you like your marine life choreographed, various special animal performances.
Enjoy a ride on the Journey to Atlantis, a combination roller coaster and splashdown ride and the Shark Encounter in which you will be carried through a submerged acrylic tube into the sharks' tank.
Another famous ride is Wild Arctic, simulating a helicopter ride to the Arctic. After the ride, you will arrive at a simulated base station where you can observe polar bears, Pacific walruses and beluga whales. Another attraction is the Penguin Encounter, showcasing a variety of penguins.
You will have approximately 6 hours at the theme park. Afterwards, you will be driven back to your hotel in Los Angeles.
