So far our worst trip around Miami and an absolute waste of money! Within one hour we walked trough the whole park, talked, took pictures.. within 1 hour for over 40$ per person! This place is a huge children playground - and nothing more. The tanks for the animals are really small (look at the attached picture from the Manatee cage! The could just turn around the whole day in a tank with nothing more than water and there p**p.)
The main attraction, the Orca, is just a show and starts at 1pm, so you are basically forced to stay until 1pm just to see the Orca... we were there at 09:30am and left around 11 after searching in the whole parks for animals we didn't already see.
The Zoo Zurich in Switzerland got way more fishtanks and they are even more beautiful, and thats not even a "special Seaqarium".
Funny was the fact, that the main playground for children is surrounded bi a huge fishtank with the only sharks in it. And it's so easy to jump into the tank for every child - yes I know that these are no "man-eater sharks", but still, they are over 2 meter long and are sharks.
The mangrove exhibition with the crocodiles and turtels was indeed nicely built and designed, but that can not justify the 40$ entrance fee per person.
All in all definitely no recommendation! Take the way to the Seaworld in Orlando FL or San Diego CA.
