Guest-favorite event is included with park admission and provides access to places and zoological specialists not typically available to the public

SeaWorld Orlando has just unveiled the much-anticipated return of its annual "Inside Look" program, now scheduled for the weekends of January 13-15 and January 20-21 and included in park admission. This special event takes guests behind the scenes of animal habitats, including beluga whales, walruses, harbor seals, and California sea lions, as well as allowing guests to meet members of the SeaWorld Rescue & Dive Teams during exclusive meet-and-greet opportunities at the Rescue Center.

“Our ongoing mission at SeaWorld Orlando is to inspire guests to become advocates for animal conservation. Inside Look serves as a platform to spotlight the dedication of our zoological specialists behind the scenes,” said Dr. Joseph Gaspard, VP of Zoo of SeaWorld Orlando. “It also aims to educate future generation on ways to contribute to the protection of endangered species and marine habitats for the years ahead.”
