SeaWorld San Diego is exciting year-round, but it is extra special during the summer. Summer Nights runs on select nights now through September, including most nights during the peak of summer. Here is just a quick overview of some of the summer fun awaiting your family:

Exclusive shows:
  • Cirque de la Mer
  • Shamu's Celebration: Light Up the Night
  • Sea Lions Tonite
  • Celebrate the Wonder - fireworks

There are also extra showings of the park's most popular shows:

  • Blue Horizons
  • One Ocean
  • Pets Rule!
  • Sea Lions LIVE

This summer you can also experience the new Explorer's Reef where you can get up close and personal to sharks, crabs, cleaner fish and more. You feel like you're stepping into the reef.

Keep your eyes open for the Surprise Squad who are out searching for guests they can delight with special gifts, behind-the-scenes experiences and so much more. While I was there recently, our family was surprised with a private behind-the-scenes tour of the animal recovery area where we got to see a baby dolphin playing with its mom. It was amazing! The Sea of Surprises is part of SeaWorld San Diego's 50th Anniversary celebration going on this year.
