SeaWorld Parks has offered free admission to active-duty troops as well as a veteran discount through its Waves of Honor program since 2003. Starting July 16, veterans can enjoy free admission to SeaWorld locations in San Diego and San Antonio through Veterans Day.

“We greatly appreciate the service and sacrifice of our veterans and retirees, and have recognized them prior to the start of our killer whale show every day for the past several years,” said SeaWorld president John Reilly.  “This year we’d like to extend our appreciation further by offering them free admission through Veterans Day. Our hope is they will share an enjoyable visit to the park with families and friends.”

In addition to receiving free admission, veterans can bring up to three guests.

To take advantage of the SeaWorld veteran discount, veterans must verify their military statuses online through and register for their tickets through Waves of Honor.
