“Great family attraction.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

We took a tour here through Carnival Cruise Lines to fill in the morning before our flight home. Although built in 1955 it is well kept up with the only place showing it age being the decor in the restaurant. We got to see all the shows, leaving at 1.30pm. We had our adult children with us but all the kids there seemed to be enjoying themselves.

“Nice Miami attraction for the family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Miami sea aquarium is a very nice attraction for everyone. I wouldn't suggest it for all day but a few hours is enough time to see all the shows and animal talks. The day we went was very hot outside but thankfully there were a lot of shady areas. I think the admission price is a little too high for what the attraction has to offer, but seeing as Miami doesn't have many similar attractions, this is not so bad.

“Awesome Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Our dolphin encounter was simply awesome! The staff treat the animals excellent and know their jobs so well and make you feel very comfortable to do what is needed for the encounter. My daughter is 13 and was quite nervous but they made her feel at ease and she did great. This was a very neat place for younger children and was hard for us to spend an entire day there, but was a great day overall!

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

We did the Sea Trek Coral Reef Adventure. It was amazing. The staff were knowledgeable and attentive to us while under the water. We went during a holiday weekend and ended up being a half hour later for our reservation. The manager (Richard) went above and beyond to accommodate us even though their policy basically states that if you're late you're out of luck. He gave us free admission into the park that day (so we didn't drive there for nothing), re-scheduled us for the next morning and gave us free photos! Great customer service. The only thing we regretted was not being able to swim with the dolphins (they were booked far in advance).
