Dine with Shamu??

Has anyone done this? Is it worth it? I read that it is a bit of a "behind the scenes" look. Does this mean that I may see nothing going on or is there a "show"?

Ive done this and it is WELL WORTH the experience, you even get a picture of your group/family-
*the food is great -its a whole bunch of fun and you get a intimate view of the whale(s) their so close you can look em in the eye.(they of course bring them right to you)

I have video of the DWS experience if you'd like to see it- Tilly was right next to us.

Could I please also ask if the group photo includes the killer whale or if it is just the people in your group?

Also, how long would you say that the entire lunch/presenation lasts?

Thanks,

the group photo is of your group, but they change the locations sometimes its by the underwater area by the whales or by the slideout area or some other place. Last year I had a picture taken right by the slideout.

the entire thing lasts about an hour or so.. sometimes longer, but it goes by so fast cause there's so much going on they sit you down and you eat and then they do the presentation.
