“It was not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

We visited Sea world many a times - and hence knew what to expect. Ticket was much cheaper so we understood it will be somewhat less. But what we experienced, was disappointing. The killer whale show - killer whale did the trick only for a minute out of a 20 min show - rest of the time, it was busy in eating. The dolphins were good - and doing their best, but it was not their show, right? Also, the top deck dolphin show does not have a gallery. With a big crowd standing in front of you, what you can see? The other dolphin show and sea lion show was good. We also visited exhibits and they are OK too, nothing looks very exciting.

After we came back from our cruise we went to Miami Seaquarium and it was a wonderful experience. Make sure you have coupons, it sure helps. Attractions were jaw dropping. My daughter and I really enjoyed ourselves with her godmother and son. It was a day well spent.

“Impressive Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

The Miami Seaquarium is not that big and is full of children.
Shows with Seals, Killer Whale and Circus people are very impressive and funny!
That was a nice experience.

“So much fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

We participated in the seal and dolphin experience. The seals were so cute and lovable. There were also baby seals in the water with us.Seals were very curious and interactive with us. Loved the dolphin experience. We were able to interact and swim with the dolphins. Such a crazy feeling when your swimming on top of the dolphin. Wished we were able to swim with the dolphins longer, only did a half a lap, but it was fun!I would recommend going to this place even if you do not do the encounters. There are so many things to see! But I would definitely recommend the encounters, because how many chances do you get to interact with seals and dolphins!
