This seaquarium is on the small side as far as exhibits go and with two of them still closed for repairs following the recent storm, it appears even smaller. Unless you can find some deeply discounted tickets it is not worth the steep price of...More

I would never return to Miami Seaquarium if I didn't have an animal encounter booked. We did the seal swim which was fantastic but the rest of the park? Pretty lackluster. Run down, seemingly sad animals, and just overall felt dirty. Cafeteria was pretty crappy...More

This is not an aquarium it is a strange mix of children's rides , kiosks and then these awful tiny pools which are far too small. I had never heard of the Orca that lives there Lolita, but I have been so upset since that...More

Hi Jayneninnes, Lolita the killer whale is healthy and thriving in her home of almost 47 years where she shares her habitat with Pacific white sided dolphins. There is no scientific evidence that the approximately 50 year-old post-reproductive whale could survive if she were to...More

My wife and I enjoyed pleasant moments that made us return to the time of child. Very interesting also by the contact with several marine animals that inhabit this park
