Full-day admission at the gate is $89/adult and $83/kids ages 3-9 (kids under 3 are free), but there are frequently better deals if you buy online in advance. Two-day passes and annual passes are also available. Choose your admission ticket carefully. There are several options available, as well as combination tickets that include Quick Queue (which allows guests Express entrance access for 5 attractions), behind-the-scenes tours, meal plans, or admission to other San Diego area attractions. View the ticket options on SeaWorld's website.

SeaWorld is open year-round, starting at 9:00 am or 10:00 am. Park closing can be as early as 5:00 pm in the off-season, or as late as 11:00 pm in busy season.

The Splash Zone is well marked in all of the stadiums. If you do not want to get wet during the shows, be sure to move to higher seating.

All of the shows are popular, and stadiums fill up quickly, so arrive early to stake out great seats.

The weather in San Diego, particularly on the coastline, can be cooler in the early morning and evening, and warm during the day, so dress in layers, and bring a change of clothing if you plan to get wet during the animal shows. Note also that the outdoor performances are for the most part uncovered—remember your sunblock!

Most of the exhibits include animal-themed gift shops, so if you are looking for merchandise featuring a specific animal, you will find the best selection at the exhibits’ shops.

If you love a particular animal (say, penguins or beluga whales), book a SeaWorld Premier Experience for a once-in-a-lifetime interactive encounter.

Inquire into “Quick Queue,” an unlimited single-day access to the express entrance at several rides. Quantities are limited and availability is seasonal. Cost varies, but starts at $20/person.

Dining options are mostly the standard fast-food fare, but the variety is good. Consider the "All Day Dining Deal," which starts at $34.99/adults and $18.99/kids 3-9. Several “dine with Shamu” options are available for all meals. You must reserve online in advance.

For driving directions, visit the SeaWorld San Diego website, call 800-25-SHAMU (800-257-4268), or use a trip routing service such as GoogleMaps (destination: 500 Sea World Dr., San Diego, CA 92109).
