  6. It’s hard to look at these photos of the whales with their trainers after that terrible incident at one of the parks. BUT … nice choice for the challenge.

    • YES agree with you, I believe the trainers do not swim with them any more because of the accidents. When we saw them last the accident was only months old and they guided the show from the pool side.

  10. This is a great interpretation. Who knew Launch had so many variations? Shamu isn’t ‘being launched’ he’s launching himself.

  11. Great idea for launch! I love it! I’ve always wanted to see a show at Sea World.

    • Highly recommend it. I dont think the trainers actually interact in the water these days because of accidents.

  14. Who can forget Shamu’s leap ? or is it our heart’s leaping with each of launch above the water and landing with a huge splash. I’ve been to Sea World San Antonio 3 times with my family…always a blast!!!
