Had the most amazing time at Sea World. I was able to spend some quality time with my 2 granddaughters, grandson, son, daughter, daughter in law and friends. We used the Reserve America website to purchase our tickets in to the park. Very easy to use. Sea World was amazing, fun and clean. Thank you for a great day!!
Tip: Take sunscreen and wear comfortable shoes

I bought my ticket through Reserve San Diego. It was easy to book, and made my trip even fun since I got a great deal. I high recommend this website for anyone who wants to plan a trip with easy convenient of not waiting in line in person. My trip to Sea world was amazing. Anytime I can take my kids where it is fun family entertainment is a plus for me. Can wait to go back to Sea World.
Tip: It get a bit cold at night so take a light jacket and great location to find a hotel to stay.

"Seaworld is Excellent!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed October 20, 2016 NEW
We could have spent two days here but saw mostly everything in one day. All the shows are fantastic and it is my advice to fit in as many as you can. There is a lot of bad publicity that Seaworld does the wrong thing by animals but that wasn't evident when we were there - there was a lot of talk of conservation and how they help and release a lot of animals. I didn't see any dolphins frowning so I guess they were having as much fun as me. Could have spend hours just sitting and watching the turtles, dolphins, penguins, polar bears, killer whales, seals & rays. Lots of fun!

"Shamu is going away!"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed October 20, 2016 NEW
We visited SeaWorld San Diego, and we are happy that Shamu will finally be freed soon.. although I will miss the show, I am glad that the whales will not be confined any longer. If you haven't seen it, now is the time! My fave show was the Sea Lions, which featured a comedy skit parody of other shows in the park. Nice to visit for 1 day only. Be sure to get the pass for food!

Was nice, but would probably not go again. Not a fan of seeing animals in smaller enclosures. A few hours at most spent here would see everything

We took our granddaughter here to see the Shamu whales. She has had so much fun, watching the dolphin, whales, seals jump around. The entertainment factor was high, this place is the best for not only kids but adults.
