This is my first 'less than excellent' review. I try my best to be positive, but I also want to remain informative. I believe the Miami Seaquarium has a lot of potential, but someone needs to invest in the park. I know easier said than done, but even the overall cleanliness was lacking. I felt the conditions for the animals... More

Aquarium was really small for the price we paid. A hundred dollars to get in, plus another hundred for a 30 minute experience with the dolphins, to buy the pictures with the dolphins was another hundred. The food was also expensive and not worth the money. Anything extra you had to pay. I just personally think they should expend the... More

You can spend 30 minutes swimming with fish and sea animals that you will always remember. True one on one encounters, you'll enjoy Dolphin Odyssey, the shows, exhibits, sealife, sunshine and the perfect weather this time of year. The staff does a good job.

The Sea Trek Reef Encounter was truly amazing experience. Parking at aquarium is 10$. Everything was amazing that we saw. The Killer whale show was quite amazing so don't miss that and also don't sit to close to the pond because whale splashes a lot of water unless you're okay with it. And the main event, the Sea Trek Reef... More

Dolphin Odyssey is great experience for any one of any age. It is definitely worth the money. Photos cost a pretty penny tho. Charged me $138 for 3 printed photos inserted into a nice album, they provide an online code where you can access additional photos at no extra charge. Killer whale show was canceled to due maintenance, so make... More

My husband and I decided to go after a day at the beach. We arrived around 3pm and honestly this was perfect. It wasn't too busy despite being a holiday weekend. I looked up coupons online and found out that there was a Groupon for daily excursions (i.e. swimming with the dolphins) as well as a deal for Veterans. Because... More

After reading all the positive reviews I was looking forward to a great experience at the Miami Seaquarium with my daughter and husband. But for us it was just okay. The facility is showing its age. The place really looks tired and worn. Much can be done to keep it clean and a coat of paint to help make some... More

We decided to go to Seaquarium on our last day in Miami. It was really bad idea because both of us felt really bad for the animals. Many of them were in a really small and dirty tanks, parrots had plucked their feathers off because of stress, rays and other large fishes were in a tank with no hideaways or... More

Really small and very underwhelming. $96 admission and $10 parking for two adults. It took us about an hour and a half to see everything. We were so disappointed we didn't even see any of the shows.
