Thank you to Sea World® San Diego for inviting us to celebrate the opening day of Ocean Explorer™, a whole new realm and Orca Encounter.

Peanut the beaver was there ready to greet us!
Celebrating the launch of Ocean Explorer with submarine and octopus donuts!
Ocean Explorer features five new children’s rides and three new animal encounters to help unlock the ocean’s deepest mysteries.
- Submarine Quest
- Tentacle Twirl
- Aqua Scout
- Sea Dragon Drop
Research, learn and collect data on some of the following creatures of the ocean in Ocean Explorer’s specially-designed aquariums:
- Mingle with an octopus
- Crawl with a crab
- See eye to eye with an eel
One of the highlights of the day was being able to see the brand new Orca Encounter! This is the first orca experience of its kind. Visitors were able to experience an educational way to connect with the ocean’s most powerful predator.
We saw a closer look at the role of family and the importance of play.
We learned about their hunting techniques and communication codes.
We witnessed their natural behaviors up close while watching the orcas with an expansive infinity screen.
