Sea World offers a great mix of entertainment for children. Just 1.5 – 2 hours drive away from Anna Maria Island it offers a great full day get away. Jump in the car as early as convenient for your family and just two hours away you can be in Orlando soaking up the Florida Sun getting entertained by some of the Worlds best shows.
Sea world is a great mixed amusement park for the entire family. Teenagers love the roller coasters, water log ride, and who does not love a tunnel aquarium? Younger children love the wild sea lion, Dolphin, and Shamu show. Adults love it all and the best moments of all are watching the smiles on your family faces.
Directions from Anna Maria Island to Seaworld are very simple and can be found below. It is best to go straight to Sea World and use parking at the park itself. Parking runs about $15 and it is well wroth it to walk from your car to the park. One trick if you are hungry as you arrive is to stop by Denny’s for a quick breakfast. You can see the Sea World main entrance sign from the Denny’s parking lot on International Drive.

The Dolphin show is great for younger children. Dolphins, divers, parrots, and plenty of other entertainment during the show makes the 1/2 hr great fun for the entire family.
The Shamu show is great fun for all. There is nothing like watching thousands of pounds of sea life jumping 15-20 feet into the air. There are only two shows per day and strongly suggest making the first show. The last show of the day ends when the park closes so you are caught up with alot of people leaving the show and the park all at the same time.
Sea World has a great area for children. A huge net area to climb, pint size amusement rides, and water cannons, everything to make the smaller children of the family happy.
