San Antonio’s rich Hispanic culture meets the sea at the all-new Fiesta del Mar! This NEW SeaWorld tradition will come alive every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with the vibrant colors, lights, smells, and sounds of old Mexico. Guests will enjoy the familiar sounds of violins and vocals from authentic mariachi bands, say “¡Olé!” to colorful flamenco performances, and indulge in their favorite Mexican festival food and drinks.
This limited-time cultural celebration occurs Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from November 6 – 15. Guests are encouraged to make reservations early as reservations are required and limited to manage capacity. Reservations can be made at SeaWorld.com/san-antonio/tickets/reservations/.
Fans of Mexican and Latin food and drink can satisfy their taste buds with delectable street vendor food options from a Fiesta del Mar chef-created menu that includes nachos, tacos, tostadas, roasted corn, churros, mangonadas; drinks including margaritas, Modelo, Modelo Negra, Dos Equis, and Tecate beers, and non-alcoholic beverages; and the ever-popular San Antonio favorite, chicken on a stick! The celebration will also include a Fiesta del Mar Market with themed merchandise, recuerdos (souvenirs), medals, and more.
SeaWorld Pass Members have the special opportunity on Sunday, November 8 to receive a FREE SeaWorld 2020 medal, exclusively designed for and only available to pass members, featuring a moving replica of the state’s Tallest, Fastest, Longest, and Newest wooden coaster – Texas Stingray (quantities are limited, while supplies last). Guests will also be treated to live music concerts with popular local bands The Chisme, and Bidi Bidi Banda (a Selena tribute band!) and enjoy the exciting rides and SeaWorld attractions they’ve come to love.
After a day of festive fun, the night sky will come to colorful life when guests cap off the party with a Fiesta del Mar fireworks extravaganza! This jaw-dropping show features a Folklorico dancer pre-show and an amazing finale of vivid flames, sparks, and aerial bursts of color, all set to Latin music. This fireworks spectacular can be viewed from socially distanced seating at Bayside Stadium, around the banks of the water ski lake, and throughout the park.
