It's an open air kind of water park with little sections to encounter filled with different sea animals. We watched the whale and dolphin show. Not great, a whale in a small tank wasn't good. Not sure how much That contributes to their rehabilitation program but I wasn't impressed. The park is huge and visiting it on one of the... More

With some free time on our hands we made the visit....There were a wide range of people, couples and a family-friendly setting with inflatable water slides to keep the youngsters cool. The shows were well timed and allowed you time to take in the walk up exhibits. The training and show staff were very informative and the added entertainment showed... More

My wife and I visited Miami Seaquarium last week, in July 6th. It is a small place, but we had some fun, swimming with dolphins and diving in a tank with a lot of fishes and stingrays. However, everything is too expensive, in my opinion. Besides the price paid in advance, we were not allowed to keep our waterproof camera,... More

We spent 3 hours visiting the Seaquarium from 3 to 6:00PM during a hot summer afternoon in July. We were able to see three of the four shows, including Flipper, the Sea Lions, and the Killer Whale show. The shows were the highlights of the day. Shows run every hour for about 15 minutes per show. The shows are fun,... More

Very big place lots of shows and tons of stuff for kids. The fish and aquarium part was actually pretty small but plenty of stuff to do. Parking is $10 which I didn't see anywhere on the website.

Thought I was in for a great day of fun but turned out to be a waste of time. First off there is no AC anywhere except in the bathrooms. The live shows are mainly educational facts about the animals. Very little of it is action packed. The park is small, cheesy and staff is unprofessional and sloppy looking. If... More

There wasn't much to do. No AC and there are only three shows not worth the price. The aquariums you could barely see anything with like 3 glass windows. There where barely any aquariums too. Just empty tanks with 3 dolphins. Half the time the animals weren't visible and to actually have fun you need to fork up a lot... More

I grew up in Miami and hadn't been to the Seaquarium in 30+ years. It has grown into a truly wonderful attraction. I had always wanted to swim with dolphins and got to do it here. It was an unforgettable experience. The staff was wonderful and professional, and you can tell that the dolphins are treated wonderfully. I highly recommend... More

General attitude was unfriendly and only friendly... More
