Go on a Monday...have the place to yourself

We visited on a Monday, early afternoon, with our 2 year old daughter. Her excitement seeing the dolphins do flips and turns was awesome. If you are going to see the orca make... read more

Aquariums are usually expensive and there are some state-of-the-art rescue aquariums that I would pay to go to. The Miami Sea Aquarium is an outdated aquarium. Even the sign outside looks old and warn down. The pens and aquariums that the animals are kept in are definitely not large enough and I do not believe the tit is a good... More

If you are going to see the orca make sure to check their show schedule and plan accordingly. Whale shows are only done twice a day. They have things going on every hour so it's not... More

The place itself could use a little bit of renovation, we felt like we time-traveled to the 80'. It's very commercial (and expensive too) and i have some ambivalent feeling towards it - on one hand we went there to see all these animals which we wouldn't be able to see wild and free, on the other hand I feel...

A great way to spend a weekday morning with young kids while allowing themselves to immerse into sea and the Everglades fauna. The place is well kept and clean. The animals for the most part seem to be in good health. Visit on a weekday to avoid crowds and you can cover the whole place in less than three hours.... More

We chose to go to the Miami Seaquarium after a recent cruise. We had a late afternoon flight home and decided this was a good way to spend the extra time. We rented a car from Alamo at the airport, set the GPS to avoid tolls, and headed to the Miami Seaquarium. The unmanned toll on Rickenbacker Causeway is apparently... More

$44 a person wasn't worth it. There were some good exhibits. Like a mini sea world, Was less than impressed with the killer whale exhibit, I am not a huge supporter of captive ocean animals and this tank was SMALL. I don't think I would recommend this place as an attraction. I will say the place was clean, bathrooms were... More

A good change of pace. Young kids enjoyed the park. Saw several shows. Shows were short in time duration which is good for young kids. Some of family swam with the dolphins. They reported it was ok. Water was filthy. Assume it was healthily enough for them. But those that did swim wondered. Shaded porch for those too young to... More

Went to this place today and had lots of fun with my 9 yo son. It's not very big, you can literally walk every inch of this place in less than 2 hours, but what makes this aquarium so special and fun is their 4 shows. These shows are included with your admission price and are 20 minutes in length.... More

You can applaud the organization for marine rescues and educating the public. There were only a handful of exhibits. There were "natural" looking exhibits for the sea turtles and alligators, it would have been nice to see the same for the manatees, as they were in a small pool. If you are new to visiting aquariums, or have young children,... More

Really old-fashioned sad place, small and totally uncharming. They could have cleaned the water for the animals at least. Show was nice, but for 200 dollars a family you expect much more
