No visit to SeaWorld is complete without a photo or two (more likely a dozen or two, but who’s counting!) of the world’s most famous orca, Shamu.
For those who want to get an up close and personal shot with Shamu, SeaWorld is happy to oblige, for a fee. You will find an interactive photo opportunity just outside the Shamu Stadium, where you and your family can pose next to a model of Shamu. The cost for the souvenir photo ranges from $8.00 to $40.00, depending on the package you choose.
Or, you can head over to the other side of the Park, where you will find another plastic model of Shamu tucked away in an obscure and not-very-well-advertised corner. In fact, this little gem isn’t even on the Park map! Visitors are welcome to pose next to the whale and click away to their hearts’ content. There is even a little staircase behind the model which you can climb up to straddle the whale, so that it looks like you’re riding it!
It’s a perfect photo opportunity and best of all, it’s free! This plastic Shamu is located in Shamu’s Happy Harbor, near the Coco Loco Arcade Games.
Go ahead, save some money…more likely than not, you’ll need it to pay for lunch!
SeaWorld San Diego is located at 500 SeaWorld Drive, San Diego, CA 92109. For more information about SeaWorld San Diego, visit the Park website, or call 1-800-25-SHAMU (1-800-257-4268).
