“Our dolphin Odyssey 2013”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

My 20 year old daughter wanted to swim with the dolphins more than anything else on our family vacation this year... so we made that happen!!!!!!! I did the research and found mixed reviews for Miami seaquarium.. So I selected the Odyssey to ensure we actally got to swim and not just pet the dolphins... So glad we spent the extra bucks!!! Such a memorable experience LOVED it.. I felt like a big KID and really loved the way my daughter just beamed at the entire experience! Just wish we could have swam ONE more time with them.... Loved it worth the money!

“Fun day at the Seaquarium”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

The Miami Seaquarium is a really great activity to do in Miami -

We had a lot of fun while visiting, we watched all the shows and really enjoyed them, especially the killer whale and the Flipper the Dolphin shows - during one day you can encounter and learn a lot about sea life - we also booked the Dolphin Encounter experience, this was really a lot of fun, the staff was very energetic and passionate, they really made us learn a lot about the life of Dolphins. we could also go swim with them, learn how to communicate and feed them. although a little short and i was hoping for more interaction.

but overall is a good experience, i would defenitly recommend everyone to go and do it!

We visited last in August 2012

During our vacation we spent the day at the Seaquarium. I bought tickets to swim with the dolphins which was amasing! The shows and staff were great!

“so-so”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

The shows were good, everyone in the family enjoyed them. The park was run-down and looking pretty shabby in parts. And poor Lolita! That is such a small pool for her. Surely she has earned a much bigger place over the years. I'm sure she has brought in many visitors and it would be nice to reward her with a much improved environment.

“Smaller than expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

This was ok but not as good as SeaWorld in San Diego. Some of the shows were just talks and a bit boring. The place was quite small and food options very limited - pizza was ok, but the cafe we ate in was awful as the food was greasy and tasteless. Hence us having to have a pizza afterwards.
