“Fun family activity!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

For sea animal lovers and kids of every age! Fun activity for the whole family. Make sure you get coupons, they sure help, otherwise it can be a bit pricey. And make sure you allow a day to visit so you get your money's worth. Drink plenty of water.......it gets hot in South Florida!

“A great day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

The Miami Seaquarium is so much fun! The best aquarium I have visited. At first it seemed pricey to me, $8 for parking then $40 per adult. But when we left I totally thought it was worth it! There is so much to see. And you must catch the shows (included in price).

“Great family getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

I was worried about the Seaquarium after reading some negative reviews but my family and I really enjoyed it. We went on the 4th of July expecting it to be crazy but it wasn't bad. Other reviews mention dated facilities and apathetic employees but everything was freshly painted and all of the employees friendly and engaged. All of the animals we saw were well-fed and seemed to like their trainers. Yes, everything is expensive. It costs $8 to park and $40 a person and they want you to buy their photos and the food is just OK. But do you know what? Every tourist attraction is like that, that's how they pay for all of the fish they have to feed the killer whale. If you stop by a local Burger King you can pick up an $8 off admission coupon that saved us the cost of the pictures we ultimately purchased. By the end of the day I thought it was quite reasonable for 5 hours of family memories that will last a lifetime.

“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.
