Here's a 3:30pm show during the midst of Spring Break 2021! This Orca Encounter was unique because the whales had switched the back pools they usually come out of (it's usually Trua and Makaio from the left and Katina, Nalani, and Malia from the right)! This didn't hold them back though and I thought this show was lovely! Highlights below as usual: Pro tip: the 3:30 Orca Encounter usually has the highest attendance and will reach capacity much faster. You want to be there as early as possible or choose a different time!
