Mission Bay - SeaWorld

At Mission Bay, it always feels like summer. The bay is lined with sandy beaches, palm trees and grassy areas, no waves in the calm waters. There's nothing like a picnic dinner, where you can relax while the kids dig in the sand or splash in the water ...

Mission Bay - Mission Bay is the perfect spot to picnic, play in the sand and swim in the warm water (no waves in the bay). All around Mission Bay are grassy areas and picnic tables. There are lifeguards at the swimming areas in spring and summer.
Boating, sailing and pedal boating - Mission Bay is also the perfect place for water sports. Rent a sail boat, motor boat, kayaks, and take a turn around the Bay. There are plenty of places to explore, and nice breezes if you're sailing.
