SeaWorld hosted an evening social event for our 180 person conference. The program was well managed with both Dolphin experience drinks and Dining with the Orcas catered dinner experience. Both events presented both an entertaining and an educational experience for our guests.

Visited this park mid week and out of season so it was fairly quiet. We felt this attraction was very disappointing. It has a run down feel about it and there doesn't seem to be an awful lot of attractions. Quite a few were closed...More
