Dine With Shamu at SeaWorld San Diego

One of the Orcas during dinner

Last Saturday we met some friends at SeaWorld for a fun outing. It’s always so fun to meet up with another family with kiddos of the same age. We had a great time with our friends and the kiddos had a blast. We’ve wanted to do something special and decided to have a very special dinner with Shamu.

Dine with Shamu

Dine with Shamu is a special VIP guest experience that allows you to have dinner next to two magnificent Orcas in a private open dining room.  It was a fun experience and I would definitely love to do it again. The key to the best experience is getting a table poolside. We arrived in the seating area in a large group at 530 and did not have the best viewing spots.

Our table

You are led to your table, a server takes your drink order and then you can hit the buffet line before the 20 minute presentation/interaction. The interaction takes place during dinner and then there is a question and answer session immediately after.

The food is pretty darn good for a theme park and the service is great! The interaction is fantastic but in my opinion it could be a tad longer. It is an incredible experience to be able to observe the animals in such close range.

This is a popular experience and advance reservations are recommended.  There are available reservations on the same day, but they do fill up quickly. We booked our experience upon arriving at the park. We enjoyed the experience and the kiddos loved every single part of it. We had a great time and I would love to do it again and sit poolside.
