We visited on a Monday. We arrived at 9:30 and parked right at the door. We pre-scheduled a dolphin excursion. If you want to do a special excursion, I suggest you schedule well in advance. These events book up fast. If you are going to do this, be advised that you will be changing into a wetsuit provided by the seaquarium. They are a little smelly. You may want to bring some soap to jump in the shower in the locker room afterwards. The locker rooms are nice and you will have a locker in which to store your things. Monday was a great day to visit. We noticed two school aged classes on a field trip, but other than that, there were few people there. The playground is great but my child was not wearing his bathing suit. The playground has water guns and the children get soaked, so your child will want to wear something that dries quickly if he/she wants to participate. We loved the dolphin show.
Thank you for taking the time to review Miami Seaquarium. It is great to hear that you had a great Monday visiting us. Thank you for sharing your experience and we hope to see you again soon.
