Flew to Miami with 8 other family members to swim with the dolphins.. We had high expectations for this experience and we were not disappointed. The Seaquarium itself is a fun place to visit and you can spend a full day there. The dolphin swim was one of the best experiences I have ever had in my life. The staff... More

I've been to Sea World in Orlando on several occasions. That's a great attraction, but I have to say that my experience of the shows at Miami Seaquarium are better. True the site is much smaller, and it's an older site so showing signs of age, but I'd recommend it any time, especially if you are local and on a... More

If you happen to be near Key Biscayne, you can stop to visit the acuarium. Although it need some restoration, is always fun with the kids.

Too big with too many "attractions", dealt poorly by staff with not much experience. Dolphin show was a bit disappointing, done by student and not real appasionate people doing the job for years. Structure old, with rust and animal in small pool.. the Killer whale, cool to see, but the space it is extremely small for an animal that size.... More

We went here as a group of four. I have previously been to Seaworld Florida but in England we have nothing near to this so it was a new experience for the other 3 guests and we weren't disappointed. The park was big enough to get around in the day but not too big, there were regular shows which were... More

As soon as you walk in, people are welcoming you. First off there are birds that people get you to hold (I was quite scared about this, but they made me feel comfortable) After this, we walked around and went to the dolphin show (where they did all the tricks) Went to a sea-lion show where it was choreographed, but...

Whale show was the best! Especially watching guy with a camera get soaked after the whale jumped in the air! However, we didn't feel there were enough attractions for the price it costs us to get in. Go to Sea World.

Our visit to the Miami Seaquarium on a warm July afternoon literally bowled all of us over. The shows, particularly with the sea lions along with those with the dolphins and the killer whales were astounding. One has to see them to believe that such incredible feats can be achieved by animals. Kudos to all the trainers.
