You honestly think its acceptable to pay money to see these creatures in that environment

Been there. It's a fantastic place and they do an awful lot of work rehabilitating sealife. I understand some don't like to see any captive animals, but surely better to rescue an injured dolphin than to let it die in a net. They also undertake a lot of educational work.
It's a fantastic price and a big tip for anyone going the first time is to consider adding discovery cove. My wife and Grand-daughter got to swim with the dolphins there and I can hear the tut-tutters out there but the money we paid goes towards more sea-life conservation than most of the tut-tut brigade will ever contribute towards.

Now time to duck under the kitchen table with a saucepan on my head ready for all the tut-tut brigade to throw their wobblies at me

I have also seen Free Willy. I also noted that was a fiction film too.
Question is - have you actually been to Seaworld, experienced the passion of the staff and looked at the work they do around the world.

I have been to seaworld but know too much about the place to ever want to go back or support it. It's a debate that has two sides but I would strongly advise people to research it's recent history before going. Not going to vote either way.

Seen the film, read the company's response. Thanks for providing it. Looks like the lawyers wrote it. Wonder why no one from SeaWorld appeared in the film? I will go to Florida, I will visit the parks but just not SeaWorld.

When I was young it was normal for circuses to have large wild animals. That is no longer the case. Eventually captivity of large wild sea animals will eventually be disowned.
#21
I agree, instead of rescuing sick and injured animals, they should be left to it.

The reason nobody from SeaWorld is in it, is because the film is one sided and has a vendetta against Sea World.
#22
tickets are e-vouchers you exchange at guest services. I received them straight away.

If you have seen the IT crowd you will know that there is a chance of fire at Seaworld...

Anyone got a link to the movie?

Indeed only after the movie have people had a problem.

Either way, this is a good deal, we paid $135 for two parks for the 14 days.

It's not my thing, but the fact there's a chance the keeper may get eaten by a hacked off orca may entice me in one day.

Went to this place just cause it was included. did not approve of dolphins being in chlorinated water, I asked one of the staff members does it hurt them, she claimed no it was safe, this is not true.

These parks are part of a billion-dollar industry built on the suffering of intelligent, social beings who are denied everything that is natural and important to them.

I did not see any performance's, I remember seeing a polar bear in an underground environment with no natural light , it was in water tank with bit of land, all I could do was feel sorry for it.

Its a shame as humans we have to do this to animals and then try to sugar coat it as if we are doing good.

Not going to preach if you should go or not, its obviously your choice, I even went myself so who am I too judge, but I did original fall for all this bull about them caring etc.

Really as humans we shouldn't keep any animal confined, if humans didn't destroy land and hunt then they we wouldn't need to make an excuse to lock up animals.

I went to the one in San Diego last year. My son absolutely loved it and branded it his favourite day of the whole trip but I was a little underwhelmed to be honest. I think the dolphins are kept well entertained, but don't think the whales are.
#32
Many of the animals at seaworld are in fact rescued animals/mammals which would have died in te wild with injuries such as propeller Damage on turtles shells, dolphins with fins missing etc.
If you do not like this deal do not add your ridiculous comments!
It's hot for a good discount to support any family going to Florida, who want to show their children animals/mammals which they would never actually get to see apart from in books/ on tv.
Seaworld also do a lot of conservation work with animals and the majority of park entrance fees go to saving injured animals & research into their work.

Spouting the same rubbish that seaworld no doubt tell people.

All for saving animals and rescuing them but not to the result of then confining them and as a result an early death or do you think they enjoy being locked up and watched and touched by humans?

http://www.seaworldofhurt.com/features/ten-things-didnt-know-seaworld/

You can actually see dolphin's swimming in natural environment's, its not costly or hard too do you know.

I also never preached on not too go, its up to everyone to make there own minds, just like animals , we should all have free will & not be restricted on what we can do.

In 20 years time people will talk about Seaworld the same way that we talk about captive big cats in a circus today. Horrible cruel place, these beautiful animals need miles of ocean not a swimming pool. #emptythetanks

Well obviously they are better just dead in the first place?? Obviously you have never been ... Therefore never seen the animals which in majority would have died if they hadn't been rescued, surely a prolonged life , is better than what would have happened in the wild??

Yes I went once and never again, plenty things to do in Florida without me seeing animals enclosed in unnatural conditions.

Many of them are not rescued most are captured, the ones injured should be saved but then released back into the wild as soon as well again.

Think I would sooner die then be locked up and forced to learn and do tricks for food.

Sea World keeps its animals for entertainment and money and helps no one but themselves.

They have had no new scientific knowledge released on any animals in their parks for decades, so they are not contributing to the science of whales in any form.

Most young calves that are born into captivity sadly die at an early age. Yet Sea World’s incestuous breeding program continues, for absolutely no good reason. So what really is Sea World contributing to the livelihood and welfare of these animals?

I have been many times before I saw Blackfish, and no I personally wouldn't go again. But each to their own, make your own decision. (FYI The animals are NOT rescue animals, SeaWorld is NOT a rescue center.)

If you fancy going to a rescue center were they help animals, check out the Big Cat Rescue over in Tampa, real nice place, nice people who really care for animals (they don't breed).

Worth noting that the trainers no longer get in the water with the whales at Seaworld, so the shows must be boring anyway, don't waste your time, its one of the more boring parks, along with Epcot.

Good deal though if this is what you want, not voting either way.

A lot of ignorant people in here defending visiting SeaWorld. Those saying that they save injured animals are just kidding themselves, probably makes them feel a bit better about their actions I guess.

Claim #1: SeaWorld does not capture killer whales in the wild.

SeaWorld claims that due to the “groundbreaking success” of its captive breeding program (if you can call inbreeding a groundbreaking success), it hasn’t taken an orca from the wild in 35 years and only two of the whales currently in its care were captured.

What it fails to mention is that it didn’t exactly have a change of heart on the issue. The violent roundups it took part in decades ago and subsequent outrage are part of the reason we now have the Marine Mammal Protection Act, which banned the capture of marine mammals in U.S. waters.

It also failed to mention the role it’s currently playing in the Georgia Aquarium’s attempt to import wild-caught belugas from Russia to the United States. The permit request was denied by NOAA Fisheries, but the aquarium isn’t giving up and sued over the decision, despite the known threat that live-capture poses to the already small population.

There’s also Morgan, a young orca who was rescued off the coast of the Netherlands in 2010 and was later deemed unfit for release. She was moved to a marine park in Spain where SeaWorld keeps some of its whales and will be bred and trained to perform. Orca advocates argue that she could have been successfully released and are fighting to have her set free, which has been done successfully before. Springer, an orphaned orca, was reintroduced to her pod and was spotted with a calf of her own this summer.

Claim #2: We do not separate killer whale moms and calves.

SeaWorld asserts that it doesn’t separate mothers and calves and that whales are only moved to “maintain a healthy social structure” or on the “rare occasion” that mothers reject calves. Experts contend that this may be technically true, if a calf is defined as one who is still nursing. However, orcas stay bonded with their mothers for life and are routinely separated from them by marine parks.

The Orca Network’s Amy Costanza countered to SeaWorld that “You have shipped killer whales all over the world like they were Amazon.com packages, almost never reuniting mother and calf. These ‘rare occurrences’ seem to happen quite often at your facilities judging by the numbers of frequencies at which you have broken up killer whale families.”

Claim #3: SeaWorld’s killer whales’ life spans are equivalent with those in the wild.

SeaWorld argues that the life spans of its captive orcas are “comparable” to those in the wild, stating that five of its orcas are older than 30, with one being close to 50. However, this statement has been called out by the groups mentioned, who argue that the older orcas in SeaWorld’s care are an odd exception, not the rule, and that most die in captivity before even reaching maturity.

According to the Orca Network, and others, “the average life span for males is 30 years and 50 years for females. Males can reach an estimated maximum age of 60-70 years old, and females 80-90 years old.”

SeaWorld’s attempt to use lifespan as a justification for keeping them also ignores their quality of life. Does anyone really want to live to be 150 if they have to spend the whole time alone in a cell?

Claim #4: The killer whales in our care benefit those in the wild.

SeaWorld claims that its work with “universities, governmental agencies and NGOs to increase the body of knowledge about and the understanding of killer whales” and that its research has “significant real-world benefits” for wild orcas, but doesn’t say what they are and continues further down to argue that keeping them captive is the best way to get people interested in conservation.

According to the Oceanic Preservation Society, “SeaWorld has published very few scientific papers on the species and what it has contributed to our understanding of their biology was learned some time ago. SeaWorld contributes almost no information today that addresses the protection of wild orcas.”

Even if research and education were SeaWorld’s core goals, which as a for-profit business they aren’t, orcas, in theory, would not be kept as performers. Even then, sacrificing a complex being just so the public can gawk at it would still be a questionable practice at best.

Claim #5: SeaWorld invests millions of dollars in the care of our killer whales.

SeaWorld stated it spends $70 million on its orca facilities every year, but a tank is still a tank and no amount of money can turn a tank into an ocean.

Claim #6: SeaWorld is a world leader in animal rescue.

While SeaWorld does rescue, rehabilitate and release wildlife, no one seems sure how successful its programs actually are and its certainly not throwing down money for conservation efforts. Claiming to be a leader in animal rescue also has nothing to do with exploiting marine mammals for a profit and certainly doesn’t justify continuing to do so.

Sea Shepherd notes that according to its 2011-12 Annual Report, SeaWorld has given only $9 million dollars over the last decade toward conservation efforts. To put that in perspective, the park brings in $1.5 billion every year and raked in $538.4 million this past July through September alone. Sea Shepherd continues, “That means for every 100 dollars in revenue they bring in, they donate approximately 1 cent toward saving the animals in the wild whose captive counterparts they are exploiting. That’s .0001 percent of their income going to help animals in the wild. I think that might be the most telling point of all ― that, in fact, SeaWorld is really nothing more than a money-making enterprise.”

As it turns out, Blackfish is having the exact effect SeaWorld was pretending it wouldn’t. It convincingly tapped into people’s emotions and led many to draw their own instinctual conclusion that something is terribly and inherently wrong with severing strong family bonds and confining these incredibly complex animals in tanks, regardless of how many facts and figures either side can come up with.

Even after sharing this letter far and wide, protesters still rallied in San Diego, Orlando and San Antonio on December 22, thanks in part to a birthday wish from an adorable 5-year-old boy who asked the public to help him help the orcas by staying away from SeaWorld.

A lot of travel companies have done the responsible thing and stopped selling package tours that include trips to SeaWorld. I personally think it shouldn’t even be promoted on here, and claiming you are just posting it for the ‘deal’ and that people should only comment on the price is embarrassing.

There’s absolutely no justification for it. I imagine these same people see no problem in having tourist elephant rides there too, ignorant to the fact that the elephants have had their spirit crushed in a brutal practice called phajaan. Not to mention the beatings and being kept in chains for the remainder of their lives.
