SeaWorld was amazing! Experience Oz makes the booking process easy.

The Seal encounter is definitely worth the extra money. Booking it through Experience Oz was easy. You can add the tickets to your Apple wallet and everything. Checking in was made simple and at the park, everything was open and thriving. The kids' area is great and so is the water section.

Photos with the seals, hugs, pats & feeding them fish. Watching their tricks.

Absolutely loved the experience for my teenange son. Made memories for sure. Something to do while out at Seaworld . The trainers were great with the kids and explaining bout the 2 seals (we had American and Australian seals). Definitely will do again !!

My family and I had the best experience at Sea World! I did not want to leave the place is amazing.

Sea World met every expectation and more. The booking system through Experience Oz was wonderful and made the lineup time smooth. I really enjoyed meeting the seal and spending quality time with my kids. I would highly recommend this to anyone who would like to create memories to last a lifetime.

Awesome seals. Informative and awesome experience for the whole family.

Very knowledgeable host. Friendly seals, well-paced presentation, our whole family even the 5year old loved the experience. We were unable to take our own photos as a photographer is always in front of you. So have to purchase professional photos which were a bit too expensive.

Entry to Sea World is not included with any Animal Adventures Program so don't forget to purchase it separately. If you've left it until last minute you can purchase your Sea World entry at the gate, but we highly recommend purchasing in advance to avoid waiting in line and missing your Animal Adventure! During peak school holiday periods, popular animal adventures can sell out weeks in advance. Avoid disappointment and be sure to book in your Sea World Animal Adventure well in advance.
