So I strolled on over to SeaWorld today, and enjoyed a nice morning and afternoon. After hearing some criticism of Blue Horizons on here, I decided to snap a whole bunch of pics so that I can illustrate my love for this wonderful show.
So on with the show!
The main entrance
MANTA!!!!!! Epic, terrifying, and fun!
Manta Queue... getting ready to be terrified
Petting a ray
Making some friends
There is a secret to getting the dolphins to come up up and pose for you...
As you can see it was pretty crowded but the dolphins and I made friends... where ever I was, the dolphins, and the crowds followed, so I kept moving around so that I could have some 1 on 1 time with my dolphin friends.
NOW BLUE HORIZONS..... THE BEST THEME PARK SHOW EVER!!!!!
The stage is set!
Marina dives into the ocean to be with the dolphins
Marina getting to know Delphus in dolphin form.
Marina and Delphus chillin'
Delphus in human form now teaching Marina about the sea
I will admit that this is 1 of 3 behaviors in the show that I am NOT a fan of.
Delphus making a dolphin fly
Marina interacting with Aurora in bird form
Aurora in human form
Diving water birds.
The birds of prey
False Killer Whale
You know the Fale Killer Whales are the "bad guys" in this show because they are splashing everyone
About to make a big wave
Aurora is back with Delphus to help Marina find the Blue Horizon
Delphus and Aurora trying to find that place where a bird and dolphin can live in harmony.
This is the 3rd behavior I do NOT like. The 2nd one is when a trainer rides the False Killer whale like a surf board.
The Finale with Marina learning how to swim with the dolphins and fly with the birds
Not quite over
The BIG Finale!!!! (Where I get all choked up)
Now on to penguins
The Mediterranean coast or the Water Front?
The Sky Tower
All in all it was a wonderful day at SeaWorld.
