Our 3 teenagers did the Dolphin Encounter and enjoyed it. It is a little sad that all day, the dolphins perform for the customers. It was very expensive but I suppose it helps to support the facility. The rest of the facility was OK. A mixture of sad that the animals are in captivity but also educational. They do save... More

I was not what we had expected. We paid for our two daughter to participate (ages 13 & 14) $199 each. During the 30 minutes, the girls spent most of the time standing in shallow water while listening to a trainer talk about the dolphins. They were able to kiss the dolphin, shake hands, etc... as advertised (but it was... More

Nice place to take the kids, see a show and see different marine life from the area. When I was kid and went there, used to love to see the diver in the hard hat feed the fish.

Regardless of the cazy $40.00 admission plus $8.00 parking; the entire property fails on all levels. Place is very dated and worn. Buildings look old/poorly maintained. Landscaping is minimal. The few employees I saw/encountered; no one was friendly and few were speaking english. Live shows are short, poorly written and not engaging. Many tanks and animal enclosures are too small....

I love to visit the Miami Seaquarium. The shows are great and you learn about the sea animals. You can see everything in the park in about 4-5 hours. Although they do have some water play areas for the kids, it does get very hot in the summer. The food is decent and the staff is friendly. Although, I think... More

Took my daughter for her 6th birthday here and my son age 2. They both loved it. It was extremely hot outside and they don't have many places to go in the A/C would be my only issue. The animals and shows were great and my kids had a blast. Other than dealing w Miami traffic it's great!
