Explorer’s Reef

Introducing Explorer's Reef, SeaWorld® San Diego's spectacular new attraction, where guests will enter the park under a massive wave sculpture and encounter a beautiful, underwater-themed realm of animal attractions, buildings and shade structures. After over a year of planning and construction, Explorer's Reef opened on March 21, 2014, to coincide with the official kickoff of a "Sea of Surprises" to commemorate SeaWorld's 50th Celebration!

Featuring four different touch pools, Explorer's Reef gives guests the opportunity to interact with a variety of fish, including 400 brown-banded and white-spotted bamboo sharks, and more than 4,000 cleaner fish.
