Don't miss the display of penguins outside the building. These birds are from warmer climates, and bask in the sunny San Diego weather.

Although this exhibit is getting a little older, especially when compared to the new Orlando attraction, it still offers a fascinating look into the world of the penguins. The ambiance inside the building(dark, cool, peaceful) is also a big plus. Sea World sure knows how to do exhibits.
Jack Borgeson
The effect of this habitat is amazing, the temperature is lowered, sounds of wind constantly enhance the ambiance, and the lighting is kept at a constant twilight. These factors give a great idea of the habitat the Penguins live in. Also, of course, there are many penguins and several informative signs rounding out the experience.
