This is an incredible attraction, very efficient and professionally run. The boat is first class. All the staff were friendly and capable and knowledgeable about the whales. We saw our first whale within minutes of arriving in the sea lane.

As I recall we were able to visit SeaWorld the day before, the same day as the tour or up to 2 days after the tour. You can find this information on their website under FAQs. Enjoy your tour.
