Very nicely done, all shows were enjoyable. Great info on saving wildlife. Lots of picture locations. The employees walk around with birds, turtles, etc and will take your picture, which can be purchased later. Nice little counter service food area, which is a great place to cool off!

I find it so hard to write a review of a place that houses an orca, despite whether or not I enjoyed my time there, because of how vehemently against I am of their being kept in captivity. Nevertheless, I will try to review as fairly as I can. The Miami Seaquarium had a sort of old and tired appearance... More

I have lived in Florida for 27 years and have been to many attractions throughout the state. This was, by far, one of my worst experiences. Even with "free child wth paying adult" deal, I still feel like it wasn't worth the money. The only good thing about this place were the shows, and even those were just okay. A... More

My son wanted to do "one last adventure" before the school year started and of course he picks Miami Seaquarium....again!!!! Initially, I didn't want to go because we've been almost 4-5 times already over the past few years. Anyway, he convinces me to take him...(I'm such a softy), but it turns out that we ended up having the best time... More

i personally didn't enjoy myself at the Seaquarium because there was not Air Conditioning anywhere but in the store or a small area to eat. I would think since its Florida and extremely hot they would have tried to better accommodate their guests. Be sure to wear your bathing suit (which i didn't know) so that you can have fun... More

Went for the reef diving experience which was excellent . The other shows are ok and very much depends on your view of animals in captivity! Dated park but young kids would love it anyway .

Today my two daughters took part in the Dolphin Odyssey at Seaquarium. They had a fantastic experience and we have some great pictures to add to our collection. However, I do feel that if we hadn't taken part in this experience then the aquarium itself would have been a little disappointing. The whale show was fun and worth the visit... More

My daughter had a very good time at the encounter. She got to do something special by kissing and holding a real live dolphin which will be an everlasting memory for her. The only downside was that the parent also had to pay a fee of $55 dollars just to stand and watch her. But otherwise the experience was a... More

We took our two grandchildren to the Encounter with the Dolphins. Not cheap but we thought it would be worth it for them to swim, touch and participate in activities with the dolphins. They got to do very little of any of that!! They swam one way one time.(very short) They petted the dolphins. They kissed the dolphins. That's it!... More
