Now that the summer is over, we’re taking a moment to celebrate the changes made to one of our most popular exhibits, Dolphin Point. SeaWorld San Diego guests may have noticed some big changes at our park over this last summer. If you haven’t been in the park for some time, now is a great time to visit to see what’s new! SeaWorld fans may remember visiting one of our popular exhibits Rocky Point Preserve in the past. However, you may find that it is no longer on the map!
SeaWorld dolphin trainer Joy Clausen knows what it’s like to deal with a life-threatening illness. During her battle with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Clausen underwent chemotherapy at a Children’s Hospital in Southern California, where she met many children undergoing intense chemotherapy for their illnesses. Joy came through the ordeal, and in gratitude for her health, she is offering a welcome distraction to patients from Rady Children’s Hospital in the form of a special interaction with bottlenose dolphins.

Rocky Point Preserve at SeaWorld San Diego has been undergoing some renovations for a few months and we are gearing up to reopen our area in less than one week!
