Sea World Florida: What To Bring


  • Comfortable shoes to wear! You'll be spending a lot of time walking around and standing, so make sure you have some tennis shoes.

  • Sunscreen is a must! The Florida sun really is very strong and it can take you by surprise and within a few hours you can be sun burnt. This is very uncomfortable as I'm sure you know, but also the red lobster look isn't too cool on vacation! I'd say use at least SPF factor 15 + and to be safe use 30+ for young children.

  • Make sure to bring plenty of water with you. It's probably going to be hot and you'll want to stay hydrated. Even if its not hot, why pay the park prices for drinks when you can bring your own!

  • Don't wear denim jeans! You could well end up getting soaked on some of the rides or while watching the shows. Spending the rest of the day in soaking wet heavy denim will be miserable! And with the Florida humidity they won't dry out quickly either, so try to dress light!

  • Stop at a CVS or Walgreens (well known pharmacy stores in Florida) and pick up a waterproof camera and a poncho. Again, why pay park prices?! Buying a waterproof camera could save you from ruining your existing camera if it gets wet! A poncho will keep you dry especially if you're near the front row of the Shamu show.
