With other big name corporate "sea animal" parks in Florida, you almost forget about how it all started. The Miami Seaquarium took me back to my younger days....I loved it. It is set on the ocean so as you look at the animals, you can smell the ocean air. The Flipper show was great and more personal the other dolphin shows I have seen. It is not an all day place, but you can a great time in about 4 hours.
The Dolphin Encounter is a little pricey, BUT, it is the best of the 3 I have done as far as dolphin time (note - the only bad thing is the wait from wet suit change to getting in the water...I changed fast then had to sit for about 25 minutes with no staff giving updates or talking to me or the group)
