ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.

ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding, and rewarding, programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Join us for an all-animal extravaganza in Florida! At SeaWorld, learn how animal experts care for rescued manatees and sea turtles, touch a shark, explore a polar bear den and get up close with dolphins, seals and sea lions. Ride an airboat down the St. Johns River searching for alligators. Observe rare Florida panthers, black bears and gray wolves lovingly cared for at a real “Old Florida” animal park. Meet birds of prey at a raptor rehabilitation center and see how the wildlife specialists at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and the Central Florida Zoo meet the unique challenges of animal care.


• Search for wildlife on the St. Johns River by airboat, and go behind the scenes at Animal Kingdom for a view that everyday visitors never get.
• Leave behind the crowds for an insider’s look at Sea World, its animals and its care facilities.
• At the Avian Reconditioning Center for birds of prey, learn about the rescue, medical treatment, rehabilitation and release of Florida’s raptors.
