Blue Horizons Divers

I had the opportunity to hang out with the divers at our “Blue Horizons” show here at SeaWorld San Diego this past week. I think this is the coolest non-animal job we have in the park. I’ve always wanted to take a jump off the diving board at the show, but now I may have changed my mind. Since the show opened I thought the platform “was not that high” but after seeing them work through the eyes of a GoPro camera I have second thoughts. Not only is it high, but there is a lot of skill involved (the divers make it look so easy!). Here is a look at one of our many talented divers, Niko, during rehearsal and his story on how he became a professional diver. Maybe they will let me try a pencil jump?
