SeaWorld Orlando’s long-running dolphin spectacular Blue Horizons is coming to an end. Starting April 1st Dolphin Days, inspired by the popular dolphin show at SeaWorld San Diego, will take the place of the 11-year-old Blue Horizons.
Dolphin Days will have a more educational format, keeping in line with SeaWorld’s recent efforts to focus more on animal experiences rather than animal entertainment. Guests will learn all about the playful personalities of Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins, as well as witness the individual bonds developed between the dolphins and their trainers.
Fans of Blue Horizons’ dazzling display of animals can still expect to be amazed by a brilliant array of tropical birds during the new program. During each show, one young audience member will get the opportunity to join the trainers for an up-close encounter with one of the dolphins and a green macaw. In addition to witnessing the majestic abilities of the Atlantic Bottlenoses, guests will learn how dolphins can be protected in the wild. The show’s goal is to inspire its viewers to take action in preserving animals and their homes.
