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

We recently visited the aquarium for father's day. We had a good time and enjoyed our trip. The property is located on a very prime ocean front land... The property is small, the displays are modest, but the animals seems to be healthy. The sea lion show is very entertaining. The top dolphin show is very refreshing if you stand... More

Went for the afternoon and left after 2 hours. Partly because it was quite hot and nothing at this park other than gift shops seemed to be air conditioned, but mostly because it was just not a great aquarium. If you have already been to Sea World, it was not impressive. Our middle school age daughter is extremely into anything... More

A super place to visit for a few hours - maybe not a whole day though unless you have kiddies who want to make use of the extra facilities like inflated slides. The shows are entertaining and informative and everywhere was clean and tidy. Cheery staff serving in the cafe, not so cheery till server at the outdoor BBQ cafe... More
