SeaWorld VIP Tours

Experience SeaWorld as a VIP

Welcome to SeaWorld!

SeaWorld Orlando offers guests a different experience than either of its competitors – while Disney and Universal base their entertainment off of movies, animated films and fictional characters, SeaWorld offers an up-close look at sea and land-based creatures in their natural habitats. With rides, shows, educational opportunities and chances to get up close to unique animals, SeaWorld Orlando is suitable for the entire family. SeaWorld Orlando is best known for their animal interactions and shows, but there is much more to this park than killer whales named Shamu. Rollercoasters like Kraken and Manta have put SeaWorld on the map in terms of thrill rides, the 3D 360 voyage of TurtleTrek takes a look at sea turtles in a whole new way, and guests get to see the world of penguins through their eyes in the new adventure Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin. The best way to take advantage of all of this unique park has to offer is with a private guided tour to SeaWorld Orlando. With VIP seatings at shows and feedings, minimal wait times, dining reservations and a personal guide, your family can play alongside dolphins, penguins, sea lions and more during an unforgettable day at SeaWorld Orlando, all made possible to you by Go VIP  Orlando! Click here for our VIP tour pricing and complete comparison chart to help you choose the best VIP experience!

Discover the Ultimate Seaworld Orlando VIP Tour Experience – Your Ticket to Unforgettable Travel Adventures!

While every visit to SeaWorld is a special one, the SeaWorld Orlando VIP Tour ensures your experience is absolutely unforgettable. With exclusive animal encounters, behind-the-scenes tours, and front-of-the-line access to every attraction, you’ll feel like a real celeb!

Of course, getting pampered comes with a price tag, and at $600.00 per person, this one isn’t cheap. Is the SeaWorld VIP Tour really worth it? We’ll break down all of the details about a VIP day and deliver a final verdict on whether or not this constitutes highway robbery.

So, let’s look at the evidence, starting with Exhibit A…

SeaWorld Orlando VIP Tour – Overview

“SeaWorld VIP Tour” has a nice ring to it, but what makes it different (or better) than simply going to SeaWorld?

Regular admissions grant you access to view the animals, ride the amazing roller coasters, and catch a few shows. However, one-on-one animal encounters, line-skipping, and reserved seating for shows are all separate upgrades. Unless, of course, you opt for the VIP treatment.

The VIP treatment offers all of those things plus expedited park entry, preferred parking, vouchers for lunch, dinner at Sharks Underwater Grill, an unlimited Photo Key, and most importantly: a VIP private tour guide for the entire day . The SeaWorld VIP Tour is an aquatic 8-hour extravaganza!

A regular day at SeaWorld is always satisfying and fun, but the VIP Tour packs in the itinerary of a week’s worth of regular days – and all with an exclusive, front-row perspective.

SeaWorld Special Treatment

All right, so the perks are undeniable, but are they really that mind-blowing? In all honestly, there is a benefit to having a dedicated tour guide, quick queue for the attractions, and access to exclusive animal encounters.

SeaWorld VIP Tour

Having a private tour guide takes the day to the next level. While there is a similar (and much cheaper) Family Tour, you are paired with 12 other guests. With VIP, it’s just your group and your guide. And, as Tripadvisor reviewers have testified, these guides are phenomenally knowledgable and personable. Definitely come prepared with questions – picking their brain and learning about SeaWorld’s inner workings is a huge part of what makes this tour so incredible!

As a VIP, you’ll also find yourself at the front of the line for every attraction, which allows you to really pack your itinerary. And trust us, the SeaWorld VIP Tour has the day perfectly planned, including plenty of exclusive animal encounters. The encounters are the highlight of the SeaWorld Orlando VIP Tour, as getting to meet, feed, and pet these marine critters is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

The hassle-free aspect of booking a VIP Tour is also incredibly appealing; instead of trying to coordinate encounters separately, waiting in long lines, and rushing across the park, you’ll be escorted around like royalty. You can also customize your experience (like cutting out a few rides to spend more time with the animals, for example). Just let your guide know what you want to prioritize, and they’ll whisk you away on your personalized adventure!

Kid Approved!

25 roadside attractions you shouldn’t miss.

Looking for the ultimate guide to the best Florida roadside attractions for kids? Check out our top 25 picks! From animal encounters to historical sites, these family-friendly destinations are a must-visit for your next Florida vacation.

Behind-the-Seas

VIP Tour guests are granted behind-the-scenes access where they can view portions of habitat not open to the public. This often includes a visit to the animal care facilities where SeaWorld staff work to rehabilitate injured wildlife. From manatees to sea turtles, everybody needs a helping fin now and again! Seeing these creatures get the help they deserve can be an incredibly moving experience.

In addition to these temporary residents, you’ll also get to meet many of the critters who call SeaWorld their forever home. During these exclusive animal encounters, you’ll get to talk with the trainers and watch as they showcase their training techniques. It’s hard to say what’s better – seeing the adorable animals or seeing the heartwarming passion other people have for them!

Sea Lions, Dolphins, and Whales – Oh, My!

Which animals will you encounter on your SeaWorld VIP Tour?

Each VIP tour includes a meet-and-greet with dolphins, penguins, sea lions, stingrays, sharks, beluga whales, and a photo-op with an orca! During these encounters, you’ll learn how SeaWorld cares for and trains these intelligent and fun marine mammals. Most encounters also involve petting the animal, but you can double-check with your guide which interactions will include touch. Additionally, some encounters, like the stingray and beluga whale, also including feeding your new friend!

Matchable Family Hawaiian Luau Shirts, Pineapple Garden Burgundy, Men, XX-Large

The exclusive orca encounter is often considered the ultimate highlight of the day. There is something beautiful and unknowable in the eye of a whale; meeting one’s gaze is an experience that stays with you for a lifetime. (As anyone who has read Lizzie Bright & The Buckminster Boy well knows!)

If you feel passionate about penguins and go silly for sea lions, knowing you have guaranteed personalized encounters with these fantastic friends is most certainly the biggest perk of the SeaWorld VIP Tour!

Thrill Rides Just Got Even Faster

All right, so technically the roller coasters aren’t going to go faster, but you are! As a VIP, you have unlimited Quick Queue access, which means you’re at the front of the line every time for every attraction.

This includes SeaWorld’s premiere thrill rides like Mako and Manta, whose wait times can stretch up to an hour during peak season. Even during quieter days when wait times may dwindle to 15 or 30 minutes, it’s a huge time-saver to skip that altogether. After all, those smaller wait times still add up to several turns on the coaster or even an entire animal encounter! The SeaWorld Orlando VIP Tour truly helps you maximize your time at SeaWorld so not a second is wasted.

SeaWorld Orlando VIP Tour

Dinner and a Show

As part of the SeaWorld VIP Tour, you’ll be given two complimentary meals. For lunch, a voucher is provided and acts as your golden ticket to any of the quick service options in the park. That’s pretty good, but dinner is where the real VIP feel kicks in! You’re treated to a meal at Sharks Underwater Grill , one of top restaurants in all of Orlando. Not only do you get to dine on delicious locally sourced food, but you also get to immerse yourself in a shark tank!

Okay, not literally. But the restaurant has floor-to-ceiling aquarium walls with stunning views of their resident nurse, sandbar, and Atlantic blacktip sharks!

In addition to meals, the SeaWorld VIP Tour also provides you with reserved seating at all three signature shows: Dolphin Adventures, Orca Encounter, and Sea Lion & Otter Spotlight. You’ll have the best seats in the house, guaranteed! These shows can be appreciated from any angle, but nothing beats being in the splash zone of a dolphin flip or a sea lion flop!

Insider Tips

Come with a list of things you really want to see and do, as this will help your guide create the perfect itinerary. Do you love sea turtles? Don’t be shy about telling your guide! They want to make sure you see what you’re most passionate about. That being said, it’s also incredibly fun to go with the flow and follow your guide on an unexpected adventure. After all, they know SeaWorld best!

Speaking of following your guide, it probably goes without saying, but always listen to the trainers’ instructions during animal encounters. Their rules keep both you and the animals safe and stress-free! Our other animal encounter tip is be in the moment. It’s a big day but soak in every detail at each encounter. What does a penguin’s feathers feel like? Can you see your reflection in the eye of a whale? Hang on to the little details – these are the ones you won’t want to forget!

Get your free guide to Disney’s Genie+ services when you subscribe!

Because this is an 8-hour excursion, we recommend dressing comfortably. Good shoes are a must! A hat and sunscreen are also must-haves, especially during those warmer months. While Florida’s winter weather isn’t that harsh, you may still want to bring a jacket if you visit on a cooler day. (You may also want it for the bone-chilling penguin exhibit if for nothing else!)

Lastly, it’s worth noting that SeaWorld has accessibility guidelines in place to create an enjoyable experience for everyone who visits the park. Many rides are accessible to anyone who can be transferred from their wheelchair, and there is even a special access program for those unable to wait in long lines due to a disability. There is also accessible seating at the various animal shows, and dining options include allergy-friendly meals upon request.

VIP Value Verdict

So, we’ve discussed the fun stuff… now it’s time to talk about money.

As we mentioned at the beginning, the SeaWorld Orlando VIP Tour starts at $600.00 per person (but can vary by the day). Keep in mind this is in addition to your regular admissions ticket. That is a lot. However, when compared to other SeaWorld experiences, it’s not necessarily overpriced. In fact, if you were to purchase all of the included upgrades separately – from preferred parking, to dining, to each individual animal encounter – it adds up to around $620.00 (assuming I did my math correctly).

Not only would buying every upgrade separately be impractical, but those upgrades do not come with a personalized guide. The guide is an integral part of the VIP experience, offering an incredible amount of genuinely interesting insider info, taking you further back behind the scenes than in any other tour, and keeping you seamlessly on track to meet your personalized itinerary. The SeaWorld Orlando VIP Tour, while expensive, is genuinely worth the cost if you’re looking for the most immersive, exclusive, and best-of-everything SeaWorld experience!

While our verdict is that the SeaWorld Orlando VIP Tour is worth it, we don’t want to inflict our budget-minded travelers with FOMO (fear of missing out). Yes, it’s amazing – but any day at SeaWorld is tons of fun! If you only have enough to splurge on one encounter, pick your favorite animal and rest easy knowing you made an incredibly special connection with your fave sea critter! Not sure you can spring for any upgrades? You still get to see all of the wildlife, watch the shows, and ride the rides – which is a total blast .

Yes, VIP is worth it if you can swing it. But any day at SeaWorld is a good day.

Have you been on the SeaWorld Orlando VIP Tour? What did you think? We’d love to hear about your experience in the comments below!

Sea you later!

SeaWorld Orlando Ultimate VIP Tour - Is it Worth it?

vip tour seaworld

For our first year on the road, we decided to Winter in Florida. As I have mentioned in previous blogs, we didn’t do a whole lot of research before hitting the road fulltime as a family of 4 plus a pup. We were letting our intuition guide the way.

We really wanted to spend the holidays in the Florida Keys and that is what landed us in Florida for the winter.

We originally planned to spend October to January in Florida and then head to Texas, but we soon changed our plans and stayed in Florida until March.

Knowing we would be there for quite a few months, and several of them being in the Orlando area, we had some decisions to make.

Orlando has always had a special place in my heart. We visited often when I was a kid for gymnastics competitions, softball tournaments and to visit family. My Aunt loved Disney, her house could have been a little mini Disney museum!

So, when we arrived, the conversations began about whether or not to do Disney annual passes, or whether we would visit Disney, Universal, water parks, and SeaWorld.

At the time we had a 2 year old and 7 year old that are really into animals, so we landed on doing SeaWorld Platinum annual passes (blog coming in the future about the different annual passes).

I have been in the travel industry since I was 17 years old, and I have really enjoyed luxury and VIP experiences. I am all about creating incredible experiences, so when I saw that SeaWorld had a VIP Tour, I had to know more!

Let’s dive into if the SeaWorld Orlando Ultimate VIP Tour is worth it!

Haha, no, but really I could leave it at that.

It is an absolute YES! For me and the entire family!

After booking our Platinum Annual passes, we chose a day for our Ultimate VIP Tour. I couldn’t believe that this tour starts at just $600 per person, and kids under 3 are free! In comparison to other VIP tours that we have done, this seemed too good to be true, but with the 20% discount we would receive from being Platinum pass holders and Harper being free it was a no brainer for us.

Upon arrival, we were met by our Tour Guide and given Priority Access to the park. I love skipping the lines I am not sure if this comes from being a kid with an end of the alphabet last name or from the fact that my dad started the VIP tradition from an early age, so this was a great perk to start the day!

We were met by our incredible, knowledgeable tour guide, Emilee, who had already prepped an itinerary for our day based on our requests and with enough room for flexibility and fun.

We started with a family picture at the entrance sign and then headed to our first animal encounter. Oh, I hadn’t mentioned that yet, huh. Of course SeaWorld’s Ultimate VIP Tour includes Animal Encounters, not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 animal encounters!

With the SeaWorld Ultimate VIP Tour, you get a private guide, but for animal encounters, sometimes there will be additional groups that are also on VIP tours that will be a part of the animal encounter with you. On this day, we just happened to be the only VIP tour in the park. Just another special gift!

We started with getting to see the Sea Lions. A couple of Sea Lions came out to greet us, we learned their names and some fun facts about them. Talk about a fun homeschool lesson! They talked to us, barking loudly and we got to pet them and take pictures with them. All of us were smiling from ear to ear and the day had just begun!

Next, we would be heading into cooler temperatures for a behind the scenes encounter with the Penguins. Surprisingly, the kids were a little more reluctant with the Penguin encounter. It may have been the cold air, or the instructions to pet them in a specific spot with only two fingers, but even with the chilly air, Log warmed up to one of the Penguins even if he was still a little nervous.

Again, it wasn’t just a come, see, pet. It was a full experience with fun facts being shared.

I keep thinking that I am going to say, “next came my favorite part”, but I honestly am not sure what my favorite part was!

Next on the itinerary was the Orca Show. Another great benefit of the Ultimate VIP Tour is that you get reserved prime seating at shows! This allows you to enjoy more of your day, because you don’t have to arrive early to get seats or worry that the show may be full if you arrive too late. Plus, they truly are the best seats in the house!

The show was out of this world! Again, what I love is that it isn’t just a show to show off the animals, they talk about the animals and the efforts we all can make to create a positive impact on the planet for all beings!

It was now time to grab some food! No detail has been overlooked in this tour! Included in your Ultimate VIP Tour is lunch at SeaWorld’s upscale restaurant, Sharks Underwater Grill. Our family doesn’t eat out much because of the foods we avoid, and most of those foods we avoid are on our absolutely don’t eat list because at least one of us has a bad reaction to them in some way. SeaWorld hit the mark again. The server was understanding and beyond helpful. We enjoyed an amazing meal while watching 20 species of sharks swim past us. (And yes, this is the only photo I got at lunch LOL)

Now with a full belly, we were ready to go explore some more! Our guide ate at a nearby table, we invited her to join us, but she had a couple things to check in on, so she was ready as soon as we were.

We had one more encounter, which was the Dolphin encounter. Logan and Harper are in love with Dolphins, I mean they are in love with a lot of marine animals, but Dolphins definitely have a place in their hearts. The Dolphin encounter was nothing short of spectacular! It was short and it was not an in-water experience, but it was a great first experience for the kids interacting with these beautiful creatures.

vip tour seaworld

The rest of the day was filled with anything the kids wanted and one thing that was really important to mommy (me) the SeaWorld Rescue! Conservation, sustainability, rescue are all things super close to my heart, so a behind the scenes tour of the rescue was definitely on my list of must see during this tour!

For the kids their final wants were going to feed the Stingrays, which is always a favorite of theirs. Our amazing tour guide was sure to get the kids lots of shrimp to feed the Stingrays. They also got to pet a small Shark.

We also went to see the manatees, which were our tour guides favorite marine animal and soon to be a favorite of Logan’s. What we didn’t know is how much this gentle giant would be in our life moving forward as we explored Florida and the Florida Keys in the months to follow.

Last, we had to spend time on Sesame Street!

As I reminisce and share this experience with you all, it immediately takes me back to that amazing day and I can’t wait to do it again!

Ultimate VIP tour

We had a fabulous day with our guide Cailee. We had front of the line access to whatever we wanted to do and also had private meet and greets with all of the animals. While it was expensive, I feel like it was completely worth the money because there was no wasted time spent waiting in lines or trying to figure out our way around the park. Highly recommend!

We went on July 21, weather was extremely hot, the shows were great but there is not much to for a 7 year old, most of the rides she was not tall enough,and they didn’t have any rides for smaller kids. It is definitely worth it to get the all day dine deal,where you can eat in selected restaurants around the park once every hour

vip tour seaworld

Amazing park for the whole family. Love the shows watching the dolphins and orca show. Rides are fun for everyone.

Ride Kraken at SeaWorld Orlando, for the thrill of a lifetime! Kraken is the ultimate roller-coaster! Hold on tight, as you soar at over 60 MPH.

This is usually our favourite park but this year we got the feeling here and sister park, Busch Gardens, were cutting corners somewhat. Rides were conveniently closing for no apparent reason - if I were cynical, I'd suggest this was to build up queues before running the rides to get maximum bang for the buck. I understand it is a business that needs to make money and we certainly would want to see Seaworld open for many years to come but we were not best pleased to arrive one day especially to ride Mako only to find it was shut again. Other rides here and at Busch had been lottery-style for our whole holiday and we ended up being very limited on a number of rides, particularly with school trips clogging up the place and getting in our way. When I was at school, trips were to museums, not theme parks but this is a country-wide irritation, probably most felt when you don't have kids!😠 Also, Kraken Unleashed was not Unleashed because all the headsets were out for an upgrade - already?! Love the animals and feel of the place but please don't cheap out by closing rides because there may be a 5mph breeze 50 miles away.

It was HOT. There were lots of places to stop. We saw 3 shows. The dolphins... Wow! Watch for cues for great pics. Clyde and Seymore... thanks for the shout-out to teachers! ❤ Shamu's show... shout-out to our military.... ❤❤❤ Definitely do your shopping at the end so you aren't carrying it all day. Don't talk yourself out of a purchase. I'm kicking myself that I didn't buy a pretty dolphin shirt. :( Definitely take the time to walk into the 3 aquariums.
