Guests can learn, hear, and see firsthand what goes into providing animal care with Inside Look at SeaWorld Orlando.
On January weekends 12-13, 19-20, and 26-27, guests can go behind-the-scenes and see what it takes to maintain a zoological institution like SeaWorld Orlando. This exclusive access features six of the least-seen portions of the park:
SeaWorld Rescue Center
Take a trip to the home base of the SeaWorld Rescue Team to meet and hear from the filtration experts, animal care personnel, lab technicians, and veterinarians who work around-the-clock to deliver life-saving care to animals in need.
While behind-the-scenes, visitors will see many of the facilities that help provide quality care to the animals that call SeaWorld home, as well as the hundreds of rescued animals that receive care at SeaWorld each year.
Enter an area rarely seen by park guests to meet the team of ambassadors who start their day before sunrise, all to provide the best of diets for every fish, sea lion, penguin, sea turtle, dolphin, and killer whale in the park.
Sea Lion & Otter Primary Housing
For the first time ever, SeaWorld Orlando guests can visit the home of the California sea lions, Pacific walrus, and Asian small-clawed otters from Clyde & Seamore’s Sea Lion High. Participants will hear stories and gain insight from the team of trainers who perform with these animals daily.
Animal Ambassador Hamlet
Guests can visit this historic facility that’s comprised of a collection of small mammals, exotic birds, and a handful of well-trained reptiles. These Animal Ambassadors make surprise visits in the park, appear at local events, news stations, and even travel far to make appearances on national television programs.
Beluga & Seal Primary Housing
Step into this maze of back hallways that provide service access to the residents of Wild Arctic – starting with the food prep area for the beluga whales, seals, and walruses.
Going further in, guests will see a variety of beluga toys, and get to step outside and see the back beluga pool and scales. Finally, guests will see the harbor seal holding pools where the seals spend time relaxing when they’re not on exhibit.
Go above the surface and see what it looks like to tower over the depths of Manta’s main aquarium.
Guests visiting this area will discover what goes into caring for the fish, rays, sea dragons, live corals, and giant Pacific octopus that live in Manta, as well as meet the exhibit’s team of divers and aquarists.
Participants are invited to visit all six locations, collecting stamps to earn an exclusive Expert Explorer’s Pin. Inside Look tours are available at each location at various times throughout the day.
A few special guests will make appearances during the month of tours: Guy Harvey (Jan. 12-13), OCEARCH founder Chris Fischer (Jan. 19-20), and Jack Hanna (Jan. 26-27).
