ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Theme park operator SeaWorld Entertainment Inc. said Wednesday it will begin paying quarterly dividends, starting with a payment of 20 cents per share on July 1.

SeaWorld, best known for its water shows featuring killer whales and dolphins, said the dividend will be payable to shareholders of record as of June 20. The company has 93.3 million shares on the market as of May 20, meaning SeaWorld will pay about $18.7 million in dividends.
