Behind the Scenes Tour at SeaWorld

Do you want to see what happens behind the scenes here at SeaWorld? Your knowledgeable tour guide will provide fascinating facts about SeaWorld and our commitment to wildlife. Join us behind the scenes on this 75-minute tour to discover how SeaWorld animal experts care for rescued manatees and sea turtles. Plus touch a shark and interact with a penguin.

SeaWorld and Busch Gardens have been leaders in the care of animals, conservation research and animal education for over 50 years. In 2003 the non-profit foundation SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund was established to help people make a difference to wildlife in need.

Since its conception the fund has awarded over $11m in grant funding to over 800 organisations across the globe. As a non-profit foundation with the administrative support provided by SeaWorld Parks, 100 percent of money raised goes towards conservation projects. 

For every purchase of SeaWorld Parks Extras, SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment will donate $2 to specifically help UK wildlife charities, researchers and biologists make even more of a difference. 

Have fun, learn, do something unforgettable and help make a difference.
