An Insider's guide to guided tours and animal interactions at SeaWorld Orlando
Written by Robert Niles
Two weeks ago, we looked at the VIP and backstage tours at Walt Disney World. Today, we head up Interstate 4 a bit and to look at what special tours SeaWorld Orlando has to offer. Again, these are extra options, available as an additional charge on top of your regular park admission.Tweet
That's me in the water a couple summers ago, when I participated in SeaWorld San Diego's beluga interaction program.
Dolphins Up-Close Tour
Penguins Up-Close Tour
Sea Lions Up-Close Tour
SeaWorld's Family Fun Tour
SeaWorld VIP Tour
Private Elite VIP Tour
In addition to the above, SeaWorld offers two seasonal tour options:
SeaWorld's VIP Christmas Celebration
Family Fun Tour at Christmas
For more detail about these tours, or to book any of them online, follow the links from SeaWorld's tours page. Note that SeaWorld's passport members get 10 percent off the price of park tours, and that SeaWorld defines "children" as visitors between ages three and nine.
If you're looking for a more intense encounter with the park's animals, SeaWorld also offers three premium animal interaction programs:
Marine Mammal Keeper Experience
Sharks Deep Dive
Visit SeaWorld's animal interactions page for links to important program details and requirements, as well as to book online. Space is very limited for these programs, so advance reservations are a must.
Have you been on any of SeaWorld's tours or animal interaction programs? If so, please share your experience and advice about them, in the comments.
