“An enjoyable old school attraction”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

The attraction is a very nice day-trip for families. However, considering that the facilities are not at the same level as sea world, the ticket price was a little steep. But in my case, I enjoyed the active duty military discount for me and my family, this was greatly appreciated. The shows were very entertaining and they offer a lot of personalized interactive encounters with the animals.
I really enjoyed watching the animals and although the park shows its age it was very clean and organized. I would recommend it for an afternoon visit where you could catch the main shows.

“dissappointed in the old facility”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Old, dated, worn out. Very small area for the whales and dolphins, guess SeaWorld spoils you for this experience. Expected better of a Miami attraction. Sorry, overpriced.

“A great day out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

With a lemon soda in hand, Miami Seaquarium never fails to excite. A great place for everyone to view the spectacular dolphin and killer whale shows (which take place approx. every hour), watch the famous manatees which congregate in the many rivers and swamps in Florida. And if you're feeling really adventurous, enjoy the many swimming experiences on offer, including dolphins, whales! All together, a great day out!

“Dated but still enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Took my daughter for a dolphin swimming experience. Our tickets allowed us to tour the park. Clearly it is past its prime, but efforts are being made to spruce it up. Despite my observation, the shows are very good and if you are interested in sea life, this is a great place to spend the day. The Dolphin experience is very new and shows it. Professionally run and a great experience to be remembered for a life time.

“The superb Miami Seaquarium”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

What an excellent experience! Swam with dolphins; the trainers are really friendly and give you so many opportunities to interact with the dolphins, walked underwater surrounded by stingray and fish; this was on the sea trek, watched some fantastic shows with the piece de la resistance being the killer whale show - amazing acts, huge splashes and great fun for everyone. This really is a must visit place when in Miami. We got a reduced price on the Sea Trek because we were already doing the swim with the dolphins. Excellent day out and real value for money!
