We chose to go to the Miami Seaquarium after a recent cruise. We had a late afternoon flight home and decided this was a good way to spend the extra time. We rented a car from Alamo at the airport, set the GPS to avoid tolls, and headed to the Miami Seaquarium. The unmanned toll on Rickenbacker Causeway is apparently... More

$44 a person wasn't worth it. There were some good exhibits. Like a mini sea world, Was less than impressed with the killer whale exhibit, I am not a huge supporter of captive ocean animals and this tank was SMALL. I don't think I would recommend this place as an attraction. I will say the place was clean, bathrooms were... More

A good change of pace. Young kids enjoyed the park. Saw several shows. Shows were short in time duration which is good for young kids. Some of family swam with the dolphins. They reported it was ok. Water was filthy. Assume it was healthily enough for them. But those that did swim wondered. Shaded porch for those too young to... More

Went to this place today and had lots of fun with my 9 yo son. It's not very big, you can literally walk every inch of this place in less than 2 hours, but what makes this aquarium so special and fun is their 4 shows. These shows are included with your admission price and are 20 minutes in length.... More

You can applaud the organization for marine rescues and educating the public. There were only a handful of exhibits. There were "natural" looking exhibits for the sea turtles and alligators, it would have been nice to see the same for the manatees, as they were in a small pool. If you are new to visiting aquariums, or have young children,... More

Really old-fashioned sad place, small and totally uncharming. They could have cleaned the water for the animals at least. Show was nice, but for 200 dollars a family you expect much more

My family and I enjoyed visiting this Seaquarium. It is a little pricey but what isn't now a days? I feel it is well worth the money if you are a sea animal lover. There are many sea creatures to see and learn about. This aquarium is one of three trauma and rescue centers for animals like the endangered manatees... More

No exciting one other than dolphins' show. If you go there, you need just 3 hours at the morning or at the afternoon. Almost same program before/after noon. Then you can see all of them. Killer whale show is now boring, only splashing several times.

we went here thinking we could walk around for an hour or two... we paid the 10 bucks to park and then saw the price on the ticket counter. $45 a head! we bagged it and left. I am sure it is a nice place for a long day with the kids, but not for a quick adventure.

The aquarium needs seating for the shows. We really enjoyed the barbecue restaurant for chow. The water seemed full of algae and it was cloudy on some exhibits, could not see all
