Up-Close Dining at Shamu® Stadium is a unique dining experience that allows you to eat alongside SeaWorld® Orlando's famous pilot whales. Not only do you get to see the mighty marine mammals while you eat, but you also get to learn more about them and take a look behind the scenes at the life of a whale and its trainer.

    During your Up-Close Dining at Shamu® Stadium experience, you get to listen to the trainers as they explain the whales' behaviour and actions. Then, as the trainer feeds your sea-creature friends, you also get to eat a delicious meal of sustainable and seasonal food.
