Don't go! See that killer whale? Yeah, she lives in an illegal sized tank and shows signs of destress all the time! Poor Lolita. Please don't go for the animals sake not for our ENTERTAINMENT! DON'T BY A TICKET AND LET THIS PLACE GO TO HELL AND LET THE ANIMALS HAVE THE LIFE THEY DESERVE!! If you read this Miami Seaquarium, please just give the animals what they need - a happy life. Your time is up! Poor Lolita has been in there for over 40 years being burnt by the Miami sun and forced do to stupid tricks for the entertainment of humans! Give the animals what they DESERVE! PLEASE LET HER GO! 🙁 And if you do, she might even reunite with her pod which she was stolen from at the age of 4! Sometimes it's not about the money! I hope you read this and give the animals what they deserve!

We were able to experience the dolphin encounter which was so awesome. Our guide was super nice and very knowledgeable. We were able to see a dolphin perform multiple tricks and only a few feet away from us. We were also able to touch and kiss the dolphin. A great experience. As for the seaquarium itself it didn't seem like much was going on because it had rained for about 20 min and most of the food had closed down due to the rain. Maybe we just caught it at a bad time.

We love this place! It's an intimate family setting that lets you learn and enjoy about animal sea life. Super educational! I LOVE that I can share the same experience of Lolita the orca whale with my daughter!

This is a small park. It's easy to cross from one attraction/show to another even when they are on opposite sides of the park. Most shows feature the trainers in the water with the animals which, imho makes them more enjoyable. You can see all the shows by 1p if you get there early. Food isn't that great but no worse than most park food. Inside dining room gets packed quickly at peak times, but that's to be expected. There's plenty of shade and water features/slides throughout the park which is nice on hot South Florida days. Food and souvenirs are overpriced, but again, no more so than any other park. Our nine and ten year old niece and granddaughter had a blast as did us grown ups. Plan the trip right, and you'll have most of the afternoon for others activities (Hobie Beach and Crandon Park are near by).

This place was clearly run down. You would think it would be closed by now. The animals were not in good conditions. The whale was in a small pool and she had to share it with two dolphins. There clearly wasn't enough room for all of them to live in there. There were two sharks that were in a small tank and their tails were hitting the edges and were folded up, they couldn't fit. Mostly everything is outside which I didn't realize and on a hot sunny day it is almost unbearable. The food was surprisingly good though. In the back with the turtles and crocodiles there were two turtles that were badly disconfigured. Their shells were busted in and they had trouble swimming and it didn't seem like any of the staff cared to help them in any way. Overall I would not attend this place again it was hot and I didn't have a good time.
