Blue Horizons is the dolphin show at SeaWorld Orlando, but even though it stars everyone's favorite marine mammals (okay, I'll admit that I favor the orcas, but dolphins are always such crowd pleasers), it also showcases avian and human talents.

Click the slideshow accompanying this article to see the dolphins performing. You'll also see humans doing aerial feats and high dives. In addition to all that action, the show features some talented macaws and other birds, too. There's so much going on that you have to look fast or you can easily miss a jump, flip, twirl, dive, or fly-by.

Blue Horizons is performed several times each day at SeaWorld Orlando. Check your park map as soon as you arrive so you can plan to make one of the show times. You don't have to worry about working it around One Ocean (the orca show) because that show is temporarily suspended while Shamu Stadium gets some renovation work.

If you're an orca lover, don't worry. You can see the park's pod all day at "Shamu Up Close." You can witness actual training sessions throughout the day or watch Katina, Makaio, and the other ocras just playing or goofing around. For a slideshow of scenes from this new experience, jump to this article.

If you see Blue Horizons during Wild Days, which runs Saturdays and Sundays from January 11 to 26, you're in for a special treat. You'll see the park's four rescued pilot whales before each show and learn about them from a trainer. Go to this article for a slideshow of these amazing creatures.
