What’s the first thing you think of when you think of SeaWorld?

For myself and many others, the first thing that comes to mind is the spectacular aquatic shows that take place every day!

Pick an Animal, Any Animal!

The first thing to consider when choosing a show to see at SeaWorld is what type of sea animal you want to watch.

The three sea animals that are represented in SeaWorld’s shows are dolphins, sea lions, and orcas.

I went to see the sea lion and orca shows, and they were truly incredible!

The Sea Lion Show

SeaWorld Orlando’s Sea Lion show is called “Sea Lion High: The New Class.”

Set at a high school, this show features two sea lions, Clyde and Seamore, as some of Sea Lion High’s brightest pupils.

The show has a very comedic tone, and it was amusing to watch the sea lions do all sorts of goofy tricks while interacting with the human actors and trainers.

The sea lions did tricks such as standing on two legs, sliding down into the water, and more!

I enjoyed this show a lot, and I highly recommend seeing it if you’re able to.


The Orca Show

The other animal show that I saw during my visit to SeaWorld is called “Orca Encounter.”

During this show, trainers will teach you some fun facts about orcas (also known as “killer whales”) while the whales themselves do tricks in the water.

Although they may be called “killer whales,” don’t be alarmed; this show is perfectly safe for the whole family to watch.



The whales are kept at a safe distance from you as you watch, and you’re sure to be wowed by the tricks they do in the water!

Like the sea lion show, I also recommend this one. It’s a great way to learn something new about orcas while also witnessing the amazing tricks they’re capable of.

Travel Tip

No matter which aquatic show you go to see at SeaWorld Orlando, you’re guaranteed to have a fantastic time watching the animals.

The shows are educational while also being entertaining, meaning you won’t have to worry about the little ones staying seated and attentive.

Only several shows happen per day in the park, so make sure you plan accordingly and allot yourself time for at least one show during your visit.

It’s also wise to show up a half hour early to ensure you get a good seat.
