Theater of the Sea’s beautifully landscaped grounds create the perfect setting for evening events. Host a reception, cocktail party, dinner, charity event or wedding. Our elegant tropical park creates the perfect setting with dinner and dancing, a dolphin show to thrill audiences of all ages, and sea lions who entertain with their fun-loving antics. When you reserve Theater of the Sea for your special occasion, the entire park belongs to you!

We have the experience and accommodations to create a special atmosphere for all to enjoy. Our spacious Starlight Terrace is surrounded by exotic tropical gardens brimming with orchids and is encompassed by a winding path lined with festive, fiery torches and natural saltwater pools teeming with a variety of marine life such as tropical and game fish, sea turtles, and sharks. You can entertain to the music and fare of your choice…whatever it takes to make your event radiant and right.

For weddings, our charismatic dolphins can assist you in the ceremony. They are trained ring bearers and can even escort you to the altar on a floating chariot.

We’ll entertain your guests with an evening they’ll be talking about for years!
