Clyde and Seamore are fun. Still prefer the night time version but this show is really good as well. Cirque is the second Sea world san diego show(pets rule at 4), that seems a bit to high of a seed.

I like Cirque de la Mer, but it's like a poor man's Cirque du Soleil. It's not the same as say Aladdin is to the actual Broadway shows of Lion King or Little Mermaid. Aladdin's actually still a good show, just a little bit lower calibre. Had to go with Clyde & Seamore... it's just more entertaining... and heck, anytime there's animals interacting with humans at a Sea World Park, it almost always trumps the all human acts.

Sea Lions, no doubt. Just the right amount of cheese. Hell, the mime alone could beat Cirque de la Mer.

I've never been to Cirque de la Mer but I voted for it just b/c I can't stand the clyde and seamore show. I always skip when I go to seaworld..the one time I saw it, I just looked at Kracken in the background b/c it was more interesting and rolled my eyes at the lame jokes.
