Shamu Close Up


For those guests that didn’t get enough of Shamu at the Shamu Adventure, the Shamu Closeup provides them with an opportunity to view the Orca in their natural habitat.  On occasion, one of the whales comes quite close to the glass wall and provides a very up close view of Shamu that cannot be achieved during the show. 


The Orca can only be viewed at the Shamu Closeup at times during which the Shamu Adventure is not taking place.  Very often, however, the trainers are working with the whales and going through their routines.  This behind the scenes look can be quite interesting and educational, particularly when the trainer provides a running commentary about the procedures being used with the magnificent animals.
