SeaWorld San Diego Offers Interim Orca Presentations During Development of ‘Orca Encounter’


Many SeaWorld park fans were sad to see the park end it’s theatrical shows last month in which the park was visited by massive crowds for one last hurrah. Luckily for them, the show is not gone. While the park continues to develop the all new ‘Orca Encounter’ presentations, visitors can still have the chance to see these beautiful animals in action.


SAN DIEGO (Jan. 31, 2017) — As SeaWorld® San Diego prepares to debut its new Orca Encounter this summer, the park continues to conduct live, educational killer whale presentations for visitors each day. Temporary seating (bleachers) are set up around the orca underwater viewing area pool, providing park visitors with an intimate killer whale presentation while the new Orca Encounter backdrop is being constructed at the main pool. These up-close presentations feature educational information about the orcas—their physiology, trainer interaction and husbandry, and also include a training session demonstration.  The presentations are held multiple times daily; the schedule can be found online at or on the park map.
