We did the dolphin encounter and seal swim and of course we hit the shows as well. We were so impressed with how knowledgeable the staff was. They answered all of our questions and even more. It is an older facility but it was clean. I was very disappointed with some of the reviews that I read stating it wasn't... More

The pool for the killer whale is soooooo small. It should be illegal to do that to such a beautiful animal. Shame on you!! Lolita is so lonely and stuck in a bathtub!! Terrible place

We enjoy the three Dolphins Shows, especially the one with the Killer Whale. really nice. The site need some work done, and the food was enough for the time you can spend there. For an Aquarium in Miami, looks like they have a very poor variety to show. Any other Aquarium in USA has a better diversity and better aspect.... More

Booked a Dolphin odessy, the staff were helpful and really knew their stuff, each attraction we visited the staff told us all about the animals and their stories. The girl with the manatees was very informative, letting us know all about their back stories and the rescue / breeding that had been done. Yes it's expensive but so is dinner... More

A nice aquarium (and unlike many other I didn't have a problem with the price) but my children wanted to see the orca show, and it was so sad. "Lolita" the killer whale does a fine act and is well-trained, but that giant whale alone in a smallish tank is something I cannot un-see. Even the song she performed to... More

My kids loved the opportunity to see very close all kind of sea animals, from sharks to dolphins, from sea lions to turtles. The park is very nice, the seals show is amazing as well as the Orca's one. You should only prepare in advance because it is kind of expensive and if you miss the time of any of... More

This attraction was fun, but for the price I expected a lot more. The exhibits were not very exciting. The best part was the seal show. The staff at that show were really into it and did a great job. Microphones in all the shows were breaking up so it was hard to hear a lot of the shows. Lots... More

Nice for a few hours, but NOT for the price they charge!! We went with their online deal of $45 per adult and $35 for each kid for the annual pass, which is their regular gate price. It cost us close to $300 to get in, and we literally only spent maybe 3 hours there and then we were bored,... More

Hi Wolfman2014, Thanks for your review. Admission pricing funds the park’s daily care of our marine animals to ensure they receive the best nutrition and medical care available, as well as supports our conservation efforts in the community. It's odd that you only saw female trainers, we have a number of male trainers, some that you see in the seal... More

So, I was not a big fan of the park but, my wife bought a dolphin experience on groupon for her and our son. They paid 80 each from groupon for this event. It includes a annual pass and 30 minute session with a trainer and dolphin. Since they received an annual pass, I bought a annual adult pass (60.00)... More
