Directions

Sea World are located on Australia’s Gold Coast, just 3 kilometres north of Surfers paradise and 1 hour south of Brisbane.

Where are we going today?

If you love the ocean, and all it's creatures, the Sea World might just be the place for you! Sea World is an experience for the whole family where you can meet, play and learn about the beautiful creatures we have in our oceans. 

You might even go away with a new marine friend! Experience a world of incredible animals, fascinating and fun shows and educational and exciting attractions.

Think sharks are creatures to be feared? Actually, they're not! Shark Bay will show kids that these gorgeous animals are quite gentle natured creatures, and they can even get up close and personal so they can see for themselves!

The chilly Penguin Encounter is fun for checking out those little suit-clad creatures, or perhaps you want to see the loud seals in Seal Harbour?

Dolphin Cove is perfect for meeting those sweet and incredibly intelligent animals, and Seabird Rehab is the perfect place for kids to learn about why we should be looking after our oceans, and meet some of the creatures that have been injured by man made objects like fishing hooks and lines.

Sea World isn't just about the animals though - it also is about THRILLS!

A host of fast paced and thrilling rides await you! Jet Rescue sends you at 70km/hr (that's 2.5Gs!) to try and rescue a trapped sea lion. Storm Coaster drenches you with a 20m wave on dry land, and the Viking Revenge Flume get you on Viking-themed log style carriages to journey through the battlements of the Viking's Castle.

Of course, we won't tell you about all the rides - some we need to leave a secret!

For those smaller kids who might not want to take on the fast rides, Castaway Bay is a fun interactive adventure zone for kids of all ages and child friendly play areas.

Battle Boats are fun rides with super cool water cannons, and the little ones can climb, crawl and clamber their way through The Sky Fortress which is filled with 5 levels of rope bridges, tunnels and other obstacles! And of course the Sky Climb will test the bravery and balance of every child on their thrilling course 12m above ground!

Rides, shows, whale watching, helicopter rides, a lighthouse...and did we mention Dinosaur Island? Surely this place must be made up? 

Nope - it's all in Sea World!

    Ignore all the IDIOTS who watched blackfish and believe the one sided biased bashing propaganda the eco treehuggers spit out. Thousands of marine animals would be dead if not for the research that Sea World does, not to mention all the injured and sick animals that Sea World rehabs. Sea World is a top notch theme park that not only rescues injured sea life but keeps them in their care when they would no longer survive out in the wild.

    Yes Seaworld has had very bad public relations, nothing to counteract the negative publicizing after Blackfish, but there are positives including the conservation Seaworld has created and the animals lives saved. The manatees and sea turtle tanks is just one example of Seaworld positive effect on the animals that have been hurt in our waterways by humans. Overall the message is to help animals and teach people to preserve their habitats

    This is one of those gems that's often neglected because of the biggies like Disney World and Universal, but according to me, Sea World is a must-do! They have a little something for everybody not just children. Here are the must-dos in the park:

    1. Shamu show: This killer whale show is world famous and obviously a must-do. More of than not, people come all the way to Seaworld just for this! If you don't mind getting wet, occupy the front few seats in the soak zone. Grab the ones in the middle since they have the best view.

    2. Dolphin show:...Read More

    Visited August 16 with 3 yr old grndson, daughter and husband. 4 hours into the visit slipped and fell on something on the ground and broke my arm. EVERYONE BE AWARE, seaworld does NOT care about their guest...Its a sad state when a Major Corporation cant even follow up with a injured guest on their property. I am not seeking a million dollars, just a concern and out of pocket expenses for their negligance. BE AWARE EVERYONE. They obviously care less about humans than they do about the animals.

    Seaworld Orlando makes me sick after watching Blackfish; I cannot believe any compassionate human being on this Planet Earth would waste they're money or time to support an animal breeding ground for complete and utter cruelty to such beautiful animals. Watch Blackfish! Anyone who reads this review watch Blackfish and FREE TILLY!!!!!

This is one of those gems that's often neglected because of the biggies like Disney World and Universal, but according to me, Sea World is a must-do! They have a little something for everybody not just children. Here are the must-dos in the park:

1. Shamu show: This killer whale show is world famous and obviously a must-do. More of than not, people come all the way to Seaworld just for this! If you don't mind getting wet, occupy the front few seats in the soak zone. Grab the ones in the middle since they have the best view.

2. Dolphin show: This one's not as good as Shamu's but seeing such intelligent, gentle creatures perform tricks with their mentor is a delight. So, don't miss this one either.

3. Pet Ahoy: A set of rescued, trained pets perform an act on-stage that is guaranteed to entertain you. If you think potty training your pet at home was a herculean task, you'll be surprised to see how this assorted mix of animals and birds come together to perform!

4. Sting Ray feeding: Yes, you heard it right! Not only do you get to feed them, you also get to touch them and let them touch you! All for $5. There's also a shark + seal + sting ray feeding combo for $10 which is a better deal. You don't get to touch the seals or the sharks like with the sting rays though.

5. Dolphin cove: You get to touch and feed dolphins (without getting into water though). If you want the experience of swimming with dolphins, there's another park(outside seaworld) called Discovery Cove that needs advance booking. Feeding dolphins is only once per day from what I know, so check the timings ahead of time.

6. Manta: OMG! This was THE best ride we tried in whole of Orlando, Disney World + Universal + SeaWorld put together! It's one of their newest rides where your seats go horizontal at the start of the ride and you swim(rather fly) like a manta(sting ray)! Believe me, don't get out of the park without trying this one!

7. Antarctica: The ride itself is rather kiddish, but the perk here is that you get to see penguins at the end of the ride from a close distance.

Other tips:
* Each of the show has specific timings. Make sure to
plan your day at the beginning. Some of the shows are only once a day, make a note of them.

* Get a combo deal for feeding sharks + seals + sting rays. It's cheaper than buying them individually.

* Carry a poncho if you plan on sitting in the soak-zone for the killer whale and dolphin shows. Ponchos come in handy in some of the wet rides too.
