“Didnt enjoy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

I live in Miami and this aquarium is somewhere that I would never waste my time visiting again. Very boring and expensive

“Outdated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

It looks like they haven't changed this place in 30+ years. I've been here a number of times and everything is the same- shows included. Maybe a nice place to go once with younger children but certainly not worth the price.

“Do NOT waste your time & money here!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

I've traveled extensively and had been to many wonderful places. Sadly, this is not one of them. This place is soooo outdated! The dolphins area is so small. The killer whale's tank is even smaller. We all left feeling bad for these beautiful creatures trapped in these concrete tanks.

“Drove from Ft Lauderdale to see this!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

What a ripoff! $48 per person to see this rundown place. The exibits were in bad need of repair. Sea life looked fine but the place needs a facelift!
