Whales, sea lions, dolphins and penguins at SeaWorld


I love animals and enjoy watching their antics. Recently I visited SeaWorld atSan Diego in California where killer whales, dolphins, sea lions and others are trained to perform and are a delight to watch. There are adventure trips, recorded commentaries, foodstalls neatly organized so that everyone who is


interested in the world of seas can enjoy and learn about the inhabitants of the waters.


SeaWorld opened on March 21,1964 and so far more than a hundred million guests have visited it. It is a well planned theme park which is about 189.5 acres in size. Clean and beautiful it is learning about nature and inhabitants through enjoyment and excitement.


The Shamu adventure is the biggest and most exciting of all. Here killer whales called Shamu, baby Shamu, Namu perform to the delight of the audience. They dive and jump, take people on their backs for rides at lightning speed and dance to the delight of the audience. The semi circular auditorium has some front rows which are called ?soak areas? as water splashes when the heavy whales jump and


dive. The show(like all the others) begins with a commentary on where these animals live, their habits, their food etc and then they come smoothly into the scene along with their trainers who reward each correctly performed act with fishes.


Two sea lions named Clyde and Seamore present a skit and behave like excellent artistes, making noises, laughing and gliding along. Their trainers crack jokes to which these sea lions make aprropriate noises and sounds.


The dolphin show shows dolphins at their best. They also jump and dive when their trainer tells them to and are rewarded by fishes immediately when they obey. They come up to the audience who can feed them(at feed times only).


SeaWorld shows penguin encounters which are delightful.


Besides the shows there are aquariums, museums, parks where one can learn all about every sea animal round the world. The wild arctic zone shows polar bears swimming in huge artificial lakes, walruses, seals and whales. Besides, there are adventure rides like Shipwreck rapids which are very exciting. A Skytower takes visitors to the top where they can see the whole of SeaWorld and nearby areas. The skyride is a cool trip over the bay area.


One can see how these animals are trained, and can also participate in the training after paying a fee. They can also be fed during their feed times. The American Zoo and Aquarium Association has honored SeaWorld several times for high standards on marine life display, breeding and education.


There is so much to see and do at SeaWorld that even four or five visits are necessary to see and enjoy it in full.
