Miami Seaquarium is one of the places included in our summer savings pass, so we stopped by one afternoon in July and had a nice day. Parking fee was 10$. The park is small and dated, but it has lots of things to see and keeps the kids (ages 5,9,13,16) interested for a few hours. The inflatable water slides looked... More

The facility is noticeably older and could use some cosmetic updates. The morale of the employees was also a little low. They weren't necessarily rude but just not very upbeat. We ate a hamburger at the Manatee Bay Cafe and the quality of the food was not up to par with the price we paid - $26 for 2 burgers,... More

I am a Miami Beach native and visited the Miami Seaquarium as a child. It saw better days over 30 years ago but in 2016 and considering aquariums elsewhere and not even comparable to the park in Orlando. The aquarium is dated, ugly, rund down and the shows are a shade of anything you see in a major city. The... More

The Seaquarium is situated next to the sea giving it a great outlook and is perfectly positioned considering its attractions. The park is well looked after, the displays informative and the shows excellent. It is clear that education and conservation are key in everything that they do and is something I applaud! Well worth a visit.

Very nice place to visit. The shows were too good and Dolphin show was the best. A little different from regular aquariums.

It's an open air kind of water park with little sections to encounter filled with different sea animals. We watched the whale and dolphin show. Not great, a whale in a small tank wasn't good. Not sure how much That contributes to their rehabilitation program but I wasn't impressed. The park is huge and visiting it on one of the... More

With some free time on our hands we made the visit....There were a wide range of people, couples and a family-friendly setting with inflatable water slides to keep the youngsters cool. The shows were well timed and allowed you time to take in the walk up exhibits. The training and show staff were very informative and the added entertainment showed... More

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
