I was unsure exactly how the process would work as I had read several reviews stating they brought you to a central station and others that did not specify. A seaworld bus picked us up at the nearest ART stop to our hotel (about a block away if that). This bus then stopped at about 4 other hotels and picked up other people going on tours. We then drove to a central station(about 10 minutes away) where they drop you off and you exchange your voucher for an actual ticket for your tour and pay your fuel surcharge. They tell you which bus to get on at this point and when you go outside all of the buses are lined up with there number posted on a sign outside the door. Everyone splits up and gets on their respective tour and once everyone is on board you leave for your destination. Our tour guide was Brandon and he was absolutely awesome. During the hour and half drive he pointed out different landmarks and told us all about Orange County. When we arrived he took the whole group through the seaworld entrance and then we had the whole day to do what we wanted. It was more than plenty of time in the park and we met him back at the bus at 6:30. Please keep in mind that at this time there is a bit of a walk from the bus to the entrance because seaworld is redoing their main entrance. Not a big deal to us but just a heads up to those going. Once we got back on the bus he let us know that we could sleep if we were tired and he would let us know when we were back in the anaheim area so we wouldn't miss our stop. Which is exactly what we did, and he dropped us off on the corner of our block for our hotel. I would highly recommend taking this tour as opposed to driving yourself as we wouldn't have seen or known about half the things we saw if it wasn't for Brandon. Also when you spend 7-8 hours at a park, you are tired when you are done so it is nice to not have to drive back to the hotel after a long day. Worth EVERY PENNY!!!

Tour was great. Picked up from hotel on time and taken to depot to transfer to tour bus. Our Driver Matt was great and very informative. We arrived at park soon after opening and were not collected until park close so we had the whole day to explore!
Catch the Shamu show, they DO mean 'SOAKZONE'!

No problems. Picked up at hotel on time after i had confirmed i'd be there the day after. All straight forward with the phone calls to ask for pick up time and location next to hotel. Great driver/guide,sense of humour,fantastic. Lovely even travelling back from san diego and seeing the californian sunset from the coach as we drove back to anaheim. Sea world itself? Shamu and all those dolphins? great stuff,splash zones,you get wet!!!
