I've been to SeaWorld San Diego many times. I love it. It's a fantastic park that does so much good. But recently I had an opportunity to do two incredible things that I've never done before at SeaWorld San Diego. And I learned a lot. So, today I want to share what I learned at SeaWorld with you. And, we've teamed up with SeaWorld to give you the chance to visit the park yourself, so be sure to enter our giveaway at the end of the article.
First, I got to go behind-the-scenes to the rescue area with the head of the rescue and animal care department, Keith Yip. Keith has been with SeaWorld for over 30 years and his passion for helping animals is apparent when you meet him.
While behind the scenes, we also got to see the dolphin maternity ward. We saw a pregnant mama and her friends. It was so much fun and such a treat!
After the rescue area, we were in for another treat with the first Shamu show of the day, Killer Whales Up Close. This show is educational and entertaining. It answers so many of the questions that everyone wants to know. How many types of killer whales are there? What do killer whales eat? Why do they jump? How do they communicate? And so much more. We learned a ton. This show has such a different feeling than other Shamu shows I have been to, and I highly recommend it.
They are building a bigger pool that is nearly three times as deep as their current pool. This will give the whales more underwater time and gives guests a unique opportunity to see these gorgeous creatures in a more natural environment.
Following our special meeting, we got to experience Dine with Shamu. This is a delicious all you can eat breakfast and lunch opportunity that you can purchase when you visit the park. The food is delicious, but most importantly, you get a special up close view of the whales in a relaxed environment. When the Blue World Project is complete, the Dine with Shamu area will disappear. Because of this, you will want to book your reservation for Dine with Shamu before it goes away!
One of my favorite quotes and one that SeaWorld uses often is, "In the end, we will only conserve what we love. We will only love what we understand. We will only understand what we have been taught..." Baba Dioum
I firmly believe that the best way to learn and see all the good that SeaWorld San Diego does it to see if first-hand. Our San Diego vacation packages include SeaWorld tickets good for up to 7 days admission.
