After a three-month hiatus for pool upgrades, the Shamu show "One Ocean" is returning to SeaWorld in Orlando on Friday.

The "Dine With Shamu" experience, which includes a poolside meal and demonstrations of training methods, also will be returning starting Monday. The park is also working on a a new nighttime Shamu show that will debut in June as part of the park's Summer Nights promotion. —Sharon Kennedy Wynne, Times staff writer
