Here is a selection of the most recent reviews of the SeaWorld® San Diego Ticket with Transport submitted by actual travelers. Read what travelers liked, what they loved, and what they thought could be improved.
I was unsure exactly how the process would work as I had read several reviews stating they brought you to a central station and others that did not specify. A seaworld bus picked us up at the nearest ART stop to our hotel (about a block away if that). This bus then stopped at about 4 other hotels and picked up other people going on tours. We then drove to a central station(about 10 minutes away) where they drop you off and you exchange your voucher for an actual ticket for your tour and pay your fuel surcharge. They tell you which bus to get on at this point and when you go outside all of the buses are lined up with there number posted on a sign outside the door. Everyone splits up and gets on their respective tour and once everyone is on board you leave for your destination. Our tour guide was Brandon and he was absolutely awesome. During the hour and half drive he pointed out different landmarks and told us all about Orange County. When we arrived he took the whole group through the seaworld entrance and then we had the whole day to do what we wanted. It was more than plenty of time in the park and we met him back at the bus at 6:30. Please keep in mind that at this time there is a bit of a walk from the bus to the entrance because seaworld is redoing their main entrance. Not a big deal to us but just a heads up to those going. Once we got back on the bus he let us know that we could sleep if we were tired and he would let us know when we were back in the anaheim area so we wouldn't miss our stop. Which is exactly what we did, and he dropped us off on the corner of our block for our hotel. I would highly recommend taking this tour as opposed to driving yourself as we wouldn't have seen or known about half the things we saw if it wasn't for Brandon. Also when you spend 7-8 hours at a park, you are tired when you are done so it is nice to not have to drive back to the hotel after a long day. Worth EVERY PENNY!!!Reviewed by: Sara T, April 2013
Tour was great. Picked up from hotel on time and taken to depot to transfer to tour bus. Our Driver Matt was great and very informative. We arrived at park soon after opening and were not collected until park close so we had the whole day to explore!
Catch the Shamu show, they DO mean 'SOAKZONE'!
Excellent trip with Viator. We will do it again with viator. It made it extra special since it was on christmas eve and Shamu whale show was so beautifull in the night with xmas carols.Reviewed by: Sreeni M, January 2013
The bus picked us up from our hotel and then took us to a depot where along with other tourists we were then sorted into groups based on where we were going for the day, in our case Seaworld, and then put onto another bus. The downside of this is that you lose travelling time and we did not arrive at Seaworld until after 11am, which is a shame given the amount of things there are to see there. However I must say the bus driver was very nice and provided a bit of information on San Diego during the drive.
SeaWorld itself is fantastic, particuarly the whales. The Pet Show and Sea Lions were also very good also but the Dolphin show was a bit of a disapointment, only because it featured people doing diving stunts more than the actual dolphins themselves.
Didn't have time to do any of the rides as seeing the shows were our priorities. This is a great theme park.
The shows are fantastic, you must see it!Reviewed by: Jinjing S, January 2013
