Family Food Samaras celebrated Christmas and New Year in Miami 2015/2016. As a Christmas present we gave our two sons to swim with dolphins, including myself. We booked and paid this at home and it was a great experience for us to swim and just be so close to the dolphins quite so long time. Everything was very good structured... More

I came expecting an aquarium, but this park is much more like Sea World. Definitely use the schedule to plan your day to see all the shows and presentations; they're all great and not too long for those with short attention spans. Make sure you sit near the front rows for the full experience of getting splashed by sea creatures!... More

This place has so many attractions so It definitely can take more than 3 hours to see all of them. I would suggest bringing water bottles and umbrellas If it's gonna be a hot day because there are very less shaded areas inside. Also, wear something light with sneakers otherwise you'll sweat a lot. They have a normal ticket price... More

This is good only for the first time. That's Family can enjoy it, the schedule it is easy to follow. Food / water are expensive, but you need to eat. My advice is eat well before go and bring snacks and water with you and you will be fine. I think it is ok for the price.

Great time - the kids absolutely loved it and did not want to leave. We saw every show and exhibit and my 5 year old did the jungle ropes all the way to the top. Fantastic way to spend the day!!

We arrived very excited but felt let down. I would advise booking your tickets online before you go to Save money as this park is not worth the full entrance fee. We found alot of things closed (drinks, food). We went to feed the sea lions which was $5 for a 4 fish which wasnt really exepive but they dont... More

I was really expecting to much more from a Miami's seaquarium, the exhibits are poor not much animals and the shows,,,,there are no shows they pretend to have funny acts which are far away from that and they do more taking than acts.
