SeaWorld San Diego Honors Military with ‘Red, White & Blue Salute,’ Free Tickets


SeaWorld San Diego is set to debut a patriotic event that starts this Thursday and continues through the day after Veterans Day. SeaWorld’s “Red, White & Blue Salute” features special in-park activities, including a salute to the military during the prelude to Orca Encounter presentations. Guests to the park can purchase a frozen Jack Daniels & Coke specialty drink, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Operation Ride Home, a program that provides financial assistance to eligible active-duty junior-enlisted military to travel home for the holidays. Plus, active-duty military and veterans get free admission! Active duty and up to three of their direct dependents get in free through Dec. 31; veterans and up to three of their guests get in free through Nov. 15.

“Red, White & Blue Salute” takes place Nov. 5–9 and Nov. 11–12, 2020 and is included with park admission.

On November 13, SeaWorld is set to begin its Christmas celebration! More about that coming soon.

Active-duty military and veterans interested in taking advantage of the free admission offer should visit for more information before visiting the park.
