Start your day at Breakfast with Shamu. You'll get a seat next to Sea World's biggest star, plus enjoy an-all-you-care-to-eat buffet that will take care of even the biggest appetites well into the afternoon. *We didn't get a chance to do this, but I hear it's is one of the best kept secrets in the park.
It's Show Time!!!
Let's face it, Sea World is all about the shows and who doesn't love shows?
Our hands down favorite is...
We had the totally random good fortune to be asked if Nick would like to meet Shamu, talk about a once in a lifetime opportunity!!!
The music will choke you up and watching the way the trainers love that beautiful animal will give you chills. No matter how many times I've seen Shamu, it's like the first time all over again.

The other can't miss shows are:
Pet's Rule! Jump roping dogs, a tight rope walking cat, and a pot belly pig... this is a show every kid must see!
Shamu Rocks (spring break and summer nights only).
Dolphin Discovery this is a great show with surprise spoof. The preshow musician gets the audience clapping and singing along.
Sea Lions LIVE is a silly show with lots of slap happy comedy.
Cirque de la Mer (Memorial Day through Labor Day) one-of -a-kind performances, you will want to see this magical show twice.
