Spooktacular Returns to SeaWorld in September

San Diego CA— Here is a list of promotions and events at SeaWorld for September 2016:

Sea Otter Awareness Week: SeaWorld® San Diego is proud to participate in the celebration of Sea Otter Awareness Week, Sept. 18–24. Activities will include daily sea otter presentations, which take place at the park’s Otter Outlook habitat next to Dolphin Point. Other festivities include craft projects for kids and visits from animal ambassadors and O.P. Otter®, the costume character. At Otter Outlook, SeaWorld currently cares for five sea otters, all taken in through the Sea Otter Research and Conservation program at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The California sea otter is listed as a threatened species by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. Threats include oil spills, entanglement in fishing nets and diseases. SeaWorld and Busch Gardens® support conservation projects across the globe, such as sea otter preservation, through the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund. For more information, visit www.SWBG-ConservationFund.org.

SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular Returns: Guests can dive into an ocean full of family-friendly, sea-inspired Halloween festivities at the enchanting underwater fantasea known as SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular® on weekends Sept. 24 through Oct. 30. Children 12 and under are encouraged to come in costume to have a howling good time at this year’s festivities. The fun-fishy Halloween activities include 12 ocean-themed trick-or-treat stations throughout the park, along with an undersea pumpkin patch with wacky, roaming costume characters that pose for photos with guests. The pumpkin patch includes cookie decorating, pumpkin painting and a kinetic Sand Bar, where fun-sized princesses and pirates can let their imagination run wild and build their own spooky creations. New this year, park guests can immerse themselves in the culture and celebration of the Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos. Back by popular demand are Halloween-themed silly spooky shows Clyde & Seamore’s Big Halloween Bash and Sesame Street’s Who Said Boo?, which are sure to leave guests spellbound. SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular is included with park admission. For more information, call (800) 257-4268 or visit www.SeaWorldSanDiego.com (click on Events, then Halloween Spooktacular).
