I wouldn't go again

To be totally honest, I wasn't impressed at all. Its not a very big place and it costs a small fortune to get in. Even the guy in our hotel told us not to bother, and if we... read more

On our last day in Miami we spend some hours in the Seaquarium, we had some fun strolling around and got some shows (Dolphins, Orca, Manatees),

This was our first time visiting and I thought the place was going out of business. A lot of the vendors were closed or boarded up, some of the shows were closed and it was a ghost town. We went on a Friday so maybe it's just busy on the weekends. For the price you pay to get in I... More

To be totally honest, I wasn't impressed at all. Its not a very big place and it costs a small fortune to get in. Even the guy in our hotel told us not to bother, and if we hadn't already got tickets for a dolphin encounter we would have taken his advice and not gone. The dolphin show was good,... More

This place has seen it's better days. Old infrastructure and employees that are surly and rude to customers. Better ocean and wildlife exhibits in most cities. The whale tank is small for such a large beast and the dolphins and shark exhibits seem tired. Money is better spent at other attractions.

We had an enjoyable time and the shows were a lot of fun. Not a lot of aquarium displays like we have seen at others but still enjoyable.

I did not have a good opinion at first. It must be price prohibitive for most family's, please check before you take the drive. Then I found the staff that blocks the entrance for photographs rude when we declined their services. The park itself was impressive. I felt that the entrance fee must be used in the upkeep of this... More

The staff at the Seaquarium was very friendly. The tickets were a little pricey, but I can only imagine how much money the park has to spend to keep it up and running, so I would say the price is warranted. My family enjoyed seeing the shows, however, I thought the killer whale's tank was pretty small, which made me... More

First and last visit, altough employees were helpful and friendly, everything is too expensive and the infraestructure is very old, not a single decent place too eat. We've been to Denver's Colorado being a inland state an has a remarkable aquarium. The shark show, that was just an unsuccesful feeding, was bad joke. Not worth it!
