Sea of Trees

Take a walk through our wintery, watery wonderland and immerse yourself in a sea of holiday trees. Our glistening forest with over 100 trees sparkles to music and lights up the water... and, your eyes. As the lights literally dance to holiday classics, your heart will soar with wonder and delight at this truly awe-inspiring Christmas treat.

This experience is offered during SeaWorld's Christmas Celebration®.

How DOES one plant and decorate a Christmas tree in the water, much less 114 of them? Holiday designers at SeaWorld's Christmas Celebration™ have been busy creating the dazzling "Sea of Trees" - 114 giant, illuminated trees in the park's center lake - in preparation for the holiday special event opening next week. 

A returning fan favorite, the "Sea of Trees" is the dazzling centerpiece of the 200-acre park that is decked with holiday lights, décor, shows and attractions.

SeaWorld's dazzling Sea of Trees features:

  1. Almost 8 miles of garland
  2. 14 miles of cable that control the choreographed lights
  3. It would take over 3 million household Christmas lights to create our Sea of Trees performance
  4. Over 100 lighted trees
  5. Heights ranging from 10 to 22 feet
  6. Trees are planted in up to 14 feet of water

SeaWorld's Christmas Celebration is included in park admission and takes place Nov. 21-22, 27-29, & Dec. 4-6, 11-13, 18-31.
