For a limited time, Military Veterans, retirees, and honorably separated officers can score up to 4 FREE tickets to select SeaWorld Parks for yourself and up to three guests through the Waves of Honor Program!

To snag your free tickets, you’ll need to register with GOVX to verify your Veteran status, and then you’ll be able to see your available offers.

Typically through the year, only active-duty service members qualify for a free ticket to SeaWorld parks while Veterans receive discounted tickets, so this is a nice way to say thank you to our Veterans! Many of the parks offer additional savings to all Military personnel throughout the year. Keep reading to learn more about the Waves of Honor program.
