This place is world class. The dolphins were simply adorable. Our swim with the aquatic inhabitants went really well though I found my suit a bit tight but it was worth the discomfort. The hand feeding the fish, touching the manta ray felt so unrealistic....More

Hi there. How does someone use the Miami Explorer Pass at this location? Do we go straight to the entrance or have to go get tickets first from a ticket booth? Thanks.
