5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

We were on a cruise and this saved us alot of money, going with them over the ships excursion to Sea World. We did have to walk about 2 blocks from the ship to the train station, which turned out to be very fun seeing the city.
We enjoyed our driver and he picked us up also later in the afternoon as planned. We had a great time in Sea World and especially enjoyed the polar bears watching them swim and dive for fish for dinner.
The Whales were great and we spent alot of time watching them swim around under the restaurant after their show was over.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2008

Great place, very enjoyable. Shows are spectacular, and times are spaced out just right so you can get around everything. Highly recommendable.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2008

It was an amazing experience not only for my children but, for us as parents, to be able to share the same memories with our children that we had as a child. We fed the seals and dolphins, hit every ride in the park and watched all of the shows. My family had the best time there, we can't wait to go back.
