SeaWorld's Christmas Celebration
November 21st to January 3rd
Where can you find Shamu, Santa and sea lions this holiday season? SeaWorld, of course! It's all part of SeaWorld's Christmas Celebration®, kicking off November 21 and continuing through January 3, 2016. Festivities are included with park admission.
- Shamu Christmas Miracles
Shamu Stadium transforms into a winter wonderland with special lighting, music, fountains and Christmas scenes on the 80-foot-wide LED screen, as Shamu and friends celebrate the holidays with music and merriment.
- Dolphin Island Christmas
This Christmas-themed dolphin show celebrates the holidays with a tropical twist. Dolphins and pilot whales perform amazing athletic feats, and Polynesian-style dancers get into the spirit during this daytime show.
- Santa's Christmas Village
This magical, holiday area is brimming with Christmas fun! Guests can mingle with Santa's elves and Mrs. Claus, enjoy a sweet treat, and, every day through Christmas Eve, meet with the big guy himself at Santa's Cottage. Plus, Mrs. Claus invites everyone to join her in a spirited sing-along to help her and the elves light a festive 40-foot animated tree.
- Clyde & Seamore's Christmas Special
SeaWorld's prankster-loving pinnipeds Clyde and Seamore have a hilarious holiday time in this Christmas-themed sea lion and otter show.
- The Pets Rule Christmas
A specially-themed show featuring the shelter-adopted stars of the park's Pets Rule! show. As the winter season begins, the pets partake in holiday hijinks.
- Holiday Atmosphere
SeaWorld will be decked out, with more than one million holiday lights, fun and friendly Christmas characters and a 40-foot tree with an animated light show. Outside Pets' Playhouse, guests will find the Cat's Christmas Parlor, where the feline stars of Pets Rule! hang out in their own Christmas-themed house. Plus, Southern California's largest Christmas tree - SeaWorld's 320-foot Christmas Tree of Lights - shines bright above the whole park from dusk to midnight.
