I loved Dining with Shamu and was sorry it wasn't available for my most recent trip to SeaWorld, but the worst part of it being closed is that they've also blocked off the underwater viewing of the killer whales. Now the only way to see them is at their shows. This was a huge disappoiintment.

The Underwaterviewing/Dine with Shamu pool has been under construction since the beginning of the year, and has been closed since the tragic accident in Feb of 2010. Because it is still under construction, the whales are not allowed in the pool because of noise and debris that could be in the pool, so even if underwater viewing was open, there would be no whales there.

I would venture to guess at the earliest spring break time 2012 will it reopen; but I wouldn't count on it. My guess is Summer 2012; but even still, anything is possible.

..... back open as of today!

As of right now, reservations can be made at the in-park reservations center or by calling 800-327-2420. I am guessing the website will be updated soon.

The reservations are currently only available at the park. You can not make reservations online right now. My guess is it's still in the soft opening stages right now.

Can you make advanced reservations using the number that a PP posted above? Does anybody know what the cost is? We are going in October and would love to go.

Is this show worth it? Is it a regular show that everyone sees but those that dine with shamu get to watch it in a special section? WE will be going end of November so if I book now and don't get up close seats, will the seats that I get still be good enough for the price?
