SeaWorld San Diego’s New Animal Connection Experience


Most recently we had an opportunity to try the new “Animal Connection Experience” at SeaWorld San Diego. It is a 30-minute open house experience with at least three of the animal ambassadors. We met with a 5 year-old beaver named Peanut from Canada, an Eastern Screech Owl named Ruby from Florida, Goldie a sulphur-crested cockatoo that trick-or-treats, an african crested porcupine, a Linnaeus’s two-toed sloth, and a retired asian small-clawed otter named Buffy. My family loved the experience. We got to touch the animals with supervision, learned about how they came to live at SeaWorld, their behaviors, what they eat, and take photos with them. This encounter is not yet advertised. During the summer it was offered daily but for now, it is currently offered on Saturday and Sunday at 1:30 pm. The groups are limited to 8-10 people. If this is something you would like to do, go to Blue Dolphin Interaction Check-in and ask to reserve for “Animal Connection Experience” or call for availability. They only do one tour a day so you might want to reserve it right when you arrive. It’s $40 a person and they are currently working on a price for children for 2018. SeaWorld in San Diego is located at 500 Sea World Drive in San Diego, California. For more information, please visit their website at or call (619) 222-4732
