The Miami Seaquarium is a nice place to go. All the exhibits are outside so in Florida this works well. They have very nice shows with dolphins and an Orca and some sea lions. All at different times. The problem is that that is all they have. We were in and out of there in a little over an hour.... More

At $44 per adult and $34 per child I would expect the Miami seaquarium to be far larger and far more entertaining than it is. Yes there are some good shows: dolphin, whale, sea lion and feeding opportunities where you may PURCHASE food the feed the animals. And photo opportunities abound at prices such as $64 to pose with a... More

We always have a good time when we visit. The shows are always entertaining. They have a playground and water area for the kids. They have the sky zone rope climbing adventure which kids and adults enjoy and it's only $5. During their special events they have extra entertainment for the kids. Being right off the water it's just a... More

A small park filled with wonder. I grew up with Flipper and Lolita. This is where I learned to love manatees and laugh with the seals. A piece of the 1964 World's Fair still covers the stadium. I have watched Lolita for 40 years. She has taught me about what wonderful creatures live in our oceans. She is beautiful and... More

I used to visit the Seaquarium 30 years ago. I thought it would be nice to take my two year old daughter. The place hasn't changed in 30 years. Same shows, same layout, same everything. Looks like no upgrades have been done. Run down. I bought a one day pass through a promotion which gives access for a year. We... More

I love dolphins and Lolita, but Miami Seaquarium needs a real upgrade. I understand the cost of running the place, but it seems they need an expansion. I love the dolphin harbor where you can swim with the dolphins it's amazing and beautiful and so peaceful spending time by them, but the cost?! it's outrageous. They used to allow spectators...

This park should be called the Miami fish tank because an aquarium it is not! I went to the Seaquarium on a sunny Saturday hoping to have a fun-filled afternoon looking at sea life. What I got was a hot and sweaty overpriced two hours with a quick dolphin show. The first shock was the fact that I had to... More

Very hot and the place is getting a little old. Plus seeing animals in captivity is very 80's!! Its kind of sad to see dolphins and whales confined in such small spaces. Overall its ok but there are a lot other attractions I would visit before returning to the sea aquarium.
