SeaWorld Orlando Adds New Killer Whale Up-Close Tour
SeaWorld Orlando has created a new way to experience the park’s killer whales that gives guests the chance to learn how the whales live. The new Killer Whale Up-Close Tour gives guests the opportunity to meet the park’s killer whales in ways never before offered at the park. The 45-minute tour begins at 10:00 AM daily and includes learning from the park’s killer whale trainers, meeting the whales and understanding their unique personalities and even taking part in an interaction with one of the whales.
During the tour, SeaWorld’s trainers share stories and information about the killer whales, demonstrate how the whales take part in voluntary husbandry sessions and discuss their healthcare, feeding habits and more. The engaging and interactive tour also gives participants the chance to try their hand at a session with the whales alongside a trainer. Throughout the entire experience, guests can even take photos.
The tour is the latest experience created by SeaWorld to promote education. Recently, SeaWorld partnered with Guy Harvey to help save the Vaquita Purpoise, an endangered ocean species. It’s also the newest tour in the SeaWorld’s collection of memorable, educational and inspirational up-close tours. Popular guest experiences, including the Dolphin Up-Close Tour and Penguin Up-Close Tour provide hands-on interactions with some of the park’s most popular animals while encouraging guests to care about all of the animals found in the oceans. The Behind-the-Scenes Tour, a guest favorite, provides an inside look at the park’s amazing animal rescue operation and ends with the opportunity to touch a shark and meet a Magellanic penguin.
Space is limited, so guests should reserve their space online prior to visiting. For tickets and more information, visit the official SeaWorld Orlando website.
