Now off to the new dolphin show, Blue Horizons. One valuable tip is to get there early if you want the best seats in the house! Centre stage about half way up is where we find suits us all, from here you have a fabulous view of all the show and is a fantastic photo spot. The show now involves acrobatic dolphins, whales and exotic birds that soar above your head in this amazing show. It is more like a theatrical stage show than a show involving dolphins and a few birds. This is a show that brings both animals and people together to show you just how intelligent they are.
As you enter this underwater world of sharks, the feeling of being prey enters your mind. They state that this is the world’s largest underwater acrylic tunnel you will find. Different species of eels, venomous fish and barracuda along with an endless variety of sharks swim all around you as the moving walk way takes you into their habitat. Although you are 100% safe in this environment, you just can’t feeling you are being watched. It always reminds me of JAWS
The manatee’s at SeaWorld have all been rescued from the waters around Florida’s wetlands. These large gentle giants glide through the water as if floating on air. You can view these fabulous animals from above and below the water, you are lead down under in to a large auditorium where the world of the manatee is explained to you in a short film. After which you can stroll through the underwater world of the manatee.
Dolphin Cove can be found in Key West on your park map. An outside interactive area where you can get up close and personal with these fabulous animals. At certain times throughout the day, you can purchase fish so that you can interact with the dolphins, give them a head rub or just take a few memorable holiday snaps. Beware of the seagulls trying to take away your fish! A dolphin trainer will explain all you need to know about these happy creatures. One of the most popular places at SeaWorld for animal interaction, a great place for young children to learn about animals without them realizing it!
Again, as with Dolphin Cove this is located in Key West and is just before you get to the dolphins. A place where you can interact with these amazing creatures, feed them, touch and stroke their slithery bodies as they glide through the water. With more than 200 stingrays you are sure to see some action. The largest are around 5 ft in diameter. Although expect to have to wash your hands after you visit this area, it’s a little bit smelly but still a great place to visit. Its a great place for young children to get up close with creature you only see on TV, the twins love this area too.
