Cutback Cove & Big Surf Shores

One thing that makes Aquatica, SeaWorld's Waterpark™ so unique, make that two things, are the giant, side-by-side wave pools you won't find anywhere else in the U.S.

At Cutback Cove, the waves are always rolling, and the action's always high. At Big Surf Shores, the surf can be high or slow and easy.

What kind of wave do you feel like catching today? Two separate pools let you decide.

One wave pool will always be open; the second wave pool is opened seasonally.
