How to Eat Healthy at SeaWorld San Antonio

One of our favorite summer destinations is SeaWorld in San Antonio.  The last two years we’ve been extremely lucky to visit quite a few times and each time, we all have an absolute blast.

This year we have started to live a healthier lifestyle and really pay attention to the things we are allowing the family to eat. We were a little hesitant about how this would work, but much to our surprise, we were all able to eat healthy and still enjoy a full day at SeaWorld.

My number one tip for dining at SeaWorld is to purchase the All-Day Dining Deal!  If you plan on being there from open to close, this is by far your best bet when it comes to money.  The All-Day Dining Deal is $29.95 for an adult and $15.95 for children ages 3-9. Children under 3 are allowed to share with an adult. At first glance it may seem overpriced, but you can eat as much as you want, so basically it’s like an all-day buffet!

The wristbands are valid for one (1) entree, one (1) side OR one (1) dessert, and one (1) regular size non-alcoholic drink each time through the line.  But here’s the thing, you can go through the line as many times as you’d like!  There is no limit to the amount of food you can eat!  Not every restaurant accepts the wristband, so double check before going through the line. At the time this article is written, the restaurants below accept the wristband.

  • Seafire Grille
  • Sea Star Market
  • Shamu’s Smokehouse
  • Rio Grille
  • Castaway Café
  • Rosita’s Café

It is a delightful open-air market where you can stop for a tasty wrap, sandwich or cup of fruit and then shop a fun selection of t-shirts and mementos.  While I enjoyed a cup of fresh strawberries, my husband enjoyed a turkey wrap and the kiddos enjoyed a turkey sandwich.  The line has never been really long when we are there and I’m able to get several cups of strawberries or grapes with an ice-cold bottle of water.

We also really liked the SeaFire Grille.  There are a few more items on the menu but if you are trying to watch what you eat, you’ll need to make wiser choices here.  For instance, they offer a Grilled Chicken Sandwich.  I was able to get just the grilled chicken (no bun), along with a cup of grapes and a bottle of water.  The children are able to get chicken tenders with fries and a souvenir plate to take home.

I can’t remember the exact prices of the menu items, but if my memory serves me right, the cup of fruit was right around $3.50 and the entrees were right around $7.50.  I can’t count the cups of fruit I had, but I know it would have covered the price of the wristband.  Plus, that doesn’t even include the price of drinks!  With the wristbands, you get unlimited drinks.  I’m pretty sure our family went through at least 15 bottles of water.

We absolutely love visiting SeaWorld in San Antonio and it’s great to know that we can have a great time and not worry about the foods that we are putting into our bodies!

My family was invited to visit Sea World for a social media event. We were provided with complimentary tickets to the park, Quick Queue passes and all-day dining meal passes in order to appreciate the full experience of the park.

    That’s great that there’s healthy options! I’m always worried about that when traveling on vacation.

    I’m in Florida and we go to SeaWorld here. I bet the options are the same. Thanks.

    That all-day wrist band was one of my favorite things when we visited Sea World last summer. It’s SUCH a good deal and, yes, it makes it so easy to stay hydrated and to eat healthy while you’re there.

    I love that they offer such healthy options. My local amusement park is full of cheeseburgers and such, I wish I lived closer to San Antonio!

    I like buffets because I’m super picky, and I can always find what I want there! YUM!!!

    Thanks for the info…I want to visit one day too, and I care about the food I eat and my family eats.

  7. 7

    My family and I are headed there sometime this summer (or maybe fall when it cools off). This is all going to be really helpful for planning our visit!

    When I went to Universal Studios, they had a meal package deal thing. After deciding not to get it, I had wished I did by the time I left.

    We plan on visiting SA Sea World this coming Labor Day Weekend. We are trying to stay in a budget so I am purchasing the annual passes with EZ pay and purchasing the ALL-Day Dining because I will receive an additional 20% off the $29.95 when I purchase the annual passes. But I was told to call in the whole order to receive the discount on the ALL-Day dining. Are there any other ways that you know of to save money?
