Miami Seaquarium is moderate value for the buck. You will get to see the animals and fish but in limited restrictive environment. With little to know activities for them. For the price neither animal nor human is in optimal environment. limited shade, poor signage, minimal staff to assist visitors. Great snacks and gift shops. Play area for children was extensive,...

We were able to get a Super Summer pass for only $60 per adult that includes unlimited visits as well as three other attractions (Zoo Miami, Museum of Discovery and Science, Lion Country Safari) that last till September 30! Better then paying $50 per adult for one day admission. We got up close and personal with Salty the Sea Lion... More

Nice Sea aquarium but too small for the cost of entering. They need a few more attractions. Not a lot to do. I would say very boring. Good overall. It's nice for kids only.

Visited the Seaqarium and didn't realize how much the ticket price would be. The place itself is old and looks run down all around. I can say what I appreciated the most was there conservation efforts and the variety of shows, which made the extreme ticket price more palatable. The employees for the most part seemed to enjoy there jobs,... More

We had a wonderful time seeing the shows but we were able to finish the whole aquarium in a half day. Take your AAA card for half prices

I love visiting places like this when on holiday, but this was a little disappointing. It a nice enough park, but very small (it only took about 1.5 hours to see everything - excluding all shows). I only saw one show, which had no seating, you had to stand. The other show i had queued to see did not open... More

The tickets are a bit expensive but the different shows are worth the money. The place has plenty of parking slots and the food is not that costly. To get the most out of your ticket, get there early so you can enjoy most of the shows.

We had a. Great time interacting with the Dolphins at this purpose built arena. The other attractions and shows were also good and staff were helpful, friendly and professional. A great family day out.
