Dine with Orcas FAQs

There are many dining experiences you should not miss out on at SeaWorld Orlando!

Can I use a discount dining pass for the 'Dining with Orcas' experience at SeaWorld?

The SeaWorld dining pass typically covers meals at various restaurants throughout the park, but does not include specialty dining experiences like 'Dining with Orcas'. However, SeaWorld offers specific discounts or promotions for animal experiences from time to time.

How many orcas are at SeaWorld Orlando?

Five orcas live at our SeaWorld Orlando theme park. Katina is the matriarch of our killer whales. Her daughter Nalani enjoys playing with her little brother, Makaio. Malia is a gorgeous female, who is fond of our puzzle-loving male, Trua. For an opportunity to see SeaWorld Orlando’s orcas up close, stop by Orca Underwater Viewing.

Orca FAQs

Do orcas eat sharks?

Yes, orcas are mighty predators who hunt even great white sharks. Orcas hunt in packs and surround the shark. Orcas feed on the shark’s liver and leave the rest of the shark for other fish. We keep the SeaWorld orcas well away from our Shark Encounter®.

Is an orca a whale or a dolphin?

Despite the common name of “killer whale,” orcas are the largest dolphins in the world, growing up to 30 feet long and weighing up to 16,000 pounds!

Where do orcas live?

Every ocean in the world has wild populations of orcas, and they thrive in arctic waters and tropical seas. Although rarely seen off the coast of Florida, you can see orcas at the Orca Encounter in SeaWorld Orlando. Meet one of these extraordinary animals in our Killer Whale Up-Close Tour.

Why do orcas jump out of the water?

In the wild, orcas often leap high out of the water while chasing their prey! This behavior is known as “porpoising,” which helps the predator jump on the prey. After a successful hunt, orcas often breach in celebration and play, leaping straight out of the water, sometimes crashing down on their sides. SeaWorld orcas display these same natural behaviors in the Killer Whale Up-Close tour in Orlando.
