SeaWorld has inspired millions of guests since it opened in 1964. We all have a SeaWorld story; from the first time we connected with a dolphin or a whale, to the moment we made an effort to recycle to protect our ocean friends beyond the park's borders.
Miami Dolphins’ quarterback Ryan Tannehill, his wife, Lauren, and students in Tannehill’s A.C.E.S. program spent the day at SeaWorld Orlando having fun while also learning about our conservation efforts and marine life.
Everyone at SeaWorld Orlando is excited to kick off a new year, and we couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than with an all-new event that focuses on the best part of our park - our animals!
What’s one of my favorite things about working at SeaWorld?
Baby animals! Last November, I was overjoyed to watch Cascade, one of our experienced bottlenose dolphin moms, give birth to a healthy baby boy! Even after witnessing several dolphin births, I was one of the many people that got giddy and started cheering when the calf took his first breath.
Hi, I’m Christine, an Aviculturist at Discovery Cove. My love for animals started when I was very young after rescuing a pair of mockingbird chicks that had fallen out a nest in my backyard. I never thought that someday I would be working with animals as a career, but for the past thirteen years I’ve had the opportunity to work with a variety of birds, small mammals and dolphins.
TJ, a young, male common dolphin rescued on a beach near Tijuana in the spring, is thriving back in the ocean after being given a second chance at life here at SeaWorld San Diego!
You may have questions about why whales and dolphins swim out of the water onto what we call “slide-out” areas. This is a social and play behavior our trainers see daily, and the animals are safe doing this. In fact, our whales and dolphins are trained to swim onto, and off of, the slide-outs so that we can monitor their growth and give them veterinary care. In this video, SeaWorld trainer Kelly Flaherty-Clark explains the behavior in more detail.
In advance of Mother's Day, we wanted to showcase and celebrate some of the most unique mothers found at SeaWorld Orlando.
This year for Mother’s Day, SeaWorld San Diego guests can watch several of our animal moms caring for their young here at the park. One animal in particular is Cascade, a bottlenose dolphin, who is currently caring for her sixth calf that was born in early November.
