Dolphin Nursery – Summer 2017
SeaWorld Orlando’s Dolphin Nursery is one of our favorite stops in the park, so we are extremely excited that this area will get a makeover!
Guests will get an up close view on multiple levels to create a face-to-face perspective with dolphin calves, a new slide out areas and lifting floor will allow for easier access to mom and baby for the veterinary and animal care teams, and the next generation of multi-purpose digital displays will allow SeaWorld educators to share information about dolphin educational and animal care content.

The evening will shine at SeaWorld Orlando this summer when a brand new, end-of-day spectacle event called Electric Ocean will debut. As the sun goes down, the lights and energy go up offering guests a different kind of fun after dark. The ocean comes to life with bioluminescent lighting, original music, and pathway entertainment immersing guests in a glowing sea of wonder.
