  • Miami Seaquarium is a 15 hectare oceanarium located on the island of Virginia Key near downtown Miami. It was founded in 1955 by Fred D. Coppock and Captain W.B. Gray and is one of the oldest oceanari...  more »
  • Beautiful water park, a large number of different types of aquatic animals, the dolphin show to that of killer whales, parrots, flamingos and iguanas. We had so much fun and I think for kids is an amazing experience. Present even within small outlets like pizza, hot dogs, ice cream and cold drinks. You can also take photos with dolphins at a cost of $35, and you can touch them and costs $25. Delicious and funny even the little penguins.

  • Nice place to spend the day with your children. We brought a 3yo and she enjoyed the shows and the ice cream. We did a Big Excursion trip here (pick up and drop off at hotel plus admission). Skip this. It took 2hr from Sunny Isles (about 30 min away) and wasn't worth the cost savings versus uber.
  • Nice place for children, adults, families and friends to come see different marine life, learn about whales, dolphin, turtles, stingrays and other marine life. Rhe shows are awesome. There aren't a lot of resting spots because of so much walking people may need to stop and sit in the food is extremely expensive so come prepared.
  • Awesome experience. This place has lots of trained sea animals and live shows. If you are planning to visit here keep at least 4 hours aside. As it is worth your time and money.
  • Don't waste your time and money. This place needs a LOT of maintenance, better shows and more animals. Parking lot is 10 dollars plus 50 at the door plus anything your going to eat inside ( water is 4 dollars ). Now if your going to charge people this amount of money you need to have a REALLY good place to show ( not the case ). I gave 2 starts because the idea is really good and the killer whale shows is ok.
  • Amazing place for adults and kids..my husband had Sea Trek reef which was really awesome. I enjoyed killer whale, Lolita's show. She is true beauty. Must visit place.
