Realmente sorprende encontrar algo tan malo en estados unidos, no hay mucho que hacer, es un lugar pequeño y los show son monótonos.Really surprised find something so bad in United States, not there is much that do, is a place small and the show are monotonous.show original
This is a horrible place and needs to be shut down! It's old, rundown, antiquated and has no business keeping cetaceans in their appalling facility. The dolphin area is bad enough, but the killer whale tank is way, way too small, and there is no educational value to the "show"-it's beyond boring and full of inaccuracies. I disagree about Lolita being "an ambassador for her species"-last I checked, that was a voluntary position, and she certainly didn't volunteer! Seeing her-or any orca-in those conditions are nothing like seeing them in the wild, and there is certainly no conservation! In fact, it's the opposite, since she was robbed of having calves and contributing to the population of her pod and the endangered southern resident orcas of the Salish Sea! That place is NOT her home, and the idiots there are NOT her family! The people of greater Miami should be ashamed that this place still exists!
This is a horrible place that doesn't even meet the legal standards of animal care and well being. Lolita has been in the tinyiest orca tank in the UslS for over 40 years. She was born on the wold with her family until she was captured at 4 years old and sold to tje Seaquarium. PLEASE do your research before buying a ticket and supporting this awful place. Every weekend there are numerous groups protesting outside. They have also been sudd numerous times for violating the AWA (animal welfare act) This awful prison needs to be shut down. Google Hugo the whale and you will learn about one orca they have already killed. PLEASE do not support this torturous tourost trap. You pay $45 they pay with their lives.
Expensive admission and ridiculous to charge for parking in there own lot. The shows are more talking and lecturing than a actual show. Then the whale show is at 12:50 so it's just a trap to get you to eat lunch and spend more money, even if your done with all other attractions. This is nothing more than a tourist trap.
what a horrible place ...a prison for an intelligent family oriented animal that hasnt seen one of her kind since 1980 folks ...her family is alive and well living in the straits of juan de fuca... time to bring her home she has served her sentence imposed on her for long enough... she has the most inhumane conditions
We just came from there, and we are all extremely disappointed. Poor killer whale, spending 25 years in that small pool. We had booked the dolphin encounter. Extremely disappointing. Each person could touch the dolphin when it passed a few times. They used the first 15 min on posses for picture taking. No fun or a wonderful moment with the dolphin. Really sad. On our last visit to Miami we went to "theater on the sea," on the keys. It would for sure have been worth the 2 hours drive to go there. I do not recommend to go to seaquarium. Not worth the money. And they want 50$ for one photo. Bad experience.
