Following California’s safety guidelines for zoos, the park will continue to operate with enhanced health and safety protocols for cleaning and sanitizing, physical distancing, face covering requirements, and temperature screenings.

To help manage capacity, reservations and date-specific tickets must be purchased online and in advance of each visit. Each ticket includes entry into the park and access to all outdoor animal exhibits and presentations. The number of tickets available for each day are limited.

“We are thrilled to once again reopen as a zoo to provide our guests with amazing, memorable—and safe—outdoor experiences this year,” said Marilyn Hannes, president of SeaWorld San Diego. “We will continue to implement a reservation system so that our guests can freely enjoy our incredible outdoor animal exhibits and presentations.”
