Exciting Things to Do in San Diego


Sea World has since been among the top tourist attractions in this part of California ever since it has opened its doors to the public in 1964. The place has been known for Shamu, its most popular trained orca or killer whale. There are number of shows and attractions that the park offers such as the giant aquarium, shark encounter, and those events where guests can get close to dolphins and even feed them by hand. If you are ever planning a trip with your family to this place, here are some of the fun things that you definitely need to do.


Live Sea Lions

If you love the antics of those clever, crazy sea lions, Seamore and Clyde, this is certainly one attraction that you would not want to miss out on. You would definitely want to have the kids see what these sea lions are up to as they perform live with music spooks for a show that last for 20 minutes.


Sky Tower

This is perhaps one of the park’s oldest rides. It offers a 360-degree spectacular view of the Sea World along the Mission Bay. It also shows a mesmerizing view of the surrounding San Diego is while one is 320 feet up in the air. This would be a good place to head to when the sky is clear and there are no clouds hovering over San Diego.


Sky ride at the Bayside

This one is a few years older than the Sky Tower. It is a fantastic ride for those that want to go over the Mission bay and then back again while aboard gondolas. If you want to make the most of the rides in the park, then this one is something you would not want to miss out.


Pets Rule

If you love pets, then you will love how the park showcases a lot of dogs that are mostly rescued, birds, cats, as well as potbellied pigs as they show off their best moves. This is a high energy show that focuses on fun and most importantly, humane techniques for animal training.



This ride shares this name with one of the coasters at SeaWorld Orlando through the two are quite very different. The San Diego version offer a coaster that is quite fun and is definitely a must-do. If you have had the chance to ride the caster of the same name at the Orlando SeaWorld though, know that the one in San Diego is a more tempered version from the many scares and thrills that the other offers.


Journey to Atlantis

This is another ride that shares the same name as the water flume ride in SeaWorld Orlando. But this one in San Diego is more of a coaster instead of a water ride. But beware though, you will get wet. If you decide to ride in the early parts of the day when it is generally cooler, it would be best to wear a poncho.


Explorer’s Reef

This is the newest experience that the park is offering. This is not a ride nor is it a show but it is no way less exciting. If you want to get up close to underwater sea creatures, this is one attraction in the park that you would definitely want to check out.
