We did it 2 years ago and really enjoyed it-food is good, Shamu swims around a bit-when we went I thought the trainers would talk more, but they really don't-it's basically being very close to shamu-they have him come pretty close to you-you eat around a semi-circle right next to the pool-anyway, I thought it was well worth it. I figured it this way, you probably would spend almost the same at a decent restaurant, and this is a different experience!

I agree. Did it a few years ago and plan to do it again in August.

We have done this and it is on the cards for our next visit.

We are a family of 2 adults and 2 teens and we all loved it.

Nice selection of food and drink (including beer) and great photo opps with the whale.

I typed in 'dinner with shamu' on u tube and it came up with some good videos so you can get an idea what it is like. I booked it on the seaworld web site when i booked my entrance tickets.

I booked this year via sea world and payed 39 $...

As the others said, WELL worse it!

Whenwe were there, they did some tricks withthe whales and then the trainers were around for almost 25 minutes... a lot of talk!

(and they are sooo nice even if they hear "you have the best job in the world..." for the 300th time this day :-)))

Talked to Amber for a while and she was really friendly and nice!
