Visited the seaquarium with our 2,5 years old child. Very small and just a few shows a day in December. 1 or 2 hrs between the shows. Don't waste your time and money. Better go to Miami Zoo.

We absolutely loved it and we are mature adults. The dolphin and sea lion shows were absolutely spellbinding and included in the price of admission. We did the aquarium walk. The guides were wonderful with all and the experience was awesome. The park is not large, but you can see everything in one day so you don't miss out. Our aqaurium experience included the price of admission so it wasn't all that expensive.

Don't have too high of expectations for the Dolphin Odyssey Experience. You do not "swim" with the dolphin. You get to hold on to it's dorsal fin and get pulled about 10 yards which takes about 5 seconds or long enough for them to snap a photo of you that costs $50 to purchase! No doubt, the dolphins are magnificent creatures and it is wonderful to be up close to them, but this expensive experience is basically a tiny bit more involved than the Dolphin Encounter that costs $60 less. If you want to pay $60 for 5 seconds on the dorsal fin of a dolphin then this is for you. Otherwise -- the Dolphin Encounter is pretty much the same!

The shows were a lot of fun, I also recommend the dolphins adventure - the one you can actually swim and interact with them. It's really worth a visit!
