Watch whale trainers entice the massive creatures to perform tricks and bottlenose dolphins jump and play out of the water. Or brave the river through Shipwreck Rapids and the roller coaster known as Journey to Atlantis. SeaWorld San Diego offers these and dozens of other thrill rides and animal entertainment. If you're planning a trip, there's no need to pay full price, since discounted tickets to this southern California park are easy to find.
Bundle Those Services
If you think you'll visit SeaWorld more than once in a calendar year, consider an annual membership to save significant money on future visits. Through SeaWorld's website you can also get a multi-pass that permits admission to other nearby southern California attractions and good savings off the price of a one-day admission. If you stay in a local hotel during your visit, bundle your room and SeaWorld tickets for a discount. Chains such as Comfort Inn and Suites and Courtyard by Marriott offer this service.
Use Your Associations to Save
Are you a member of the military? SeaWorld regularly offers a promotion that allows you and three dependents to visit for free. If you have an AAA membership, you can get a 10-percent discount on a day pass. Members of Costco also have a chance to purchase discounted SeaWorld tickets from time to time.
