Directions from Interstate 5:
Take the SeaWorld Drive exit and head west. Take the Ingraham Street/Mission Bay Drive exit off SeaWorld Drive (it is just past the main entrance to SeaWorld), and see below.

Directions from Interstate 8:
Take the Ingraham Street/Mission Bay Drive exit, turn right or go west, and see below.

Once you're off the freeway:
From either Interstate 5 or Interstate 8, get on Ingraham St and Mission Bay Drive, then:

Move to the left one lane (otherwise you’ll be caught up in a cloverleaf that takes you to Mission Beach). You’ll see a sign overhead for SeaWorld … you can use that as your guide for what lane to be in. Turn right at the first stoplight (Perez Cove Way). Our building (stone facade, with Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute in large letters) is on the corner of Ingraham St. and Perez Cove Way.

YMCA staff and signage will be on-hand to get you to the appropriate parking lots, registration, etc.
