I will be perfectly honest: I am not a fan of Sea World. Beyond the treatment of the whales and dolphins (a fact I didn’t learn until years after this trip), I just don’t think it’s a very engaging park. By midday, I was ready to leave and I’ve never been back.
However, this trip is special to me. Not only did I get the opportunity to photograph some amazing animals, but it was also the first trip I took with my children after their adoption.
