  • Entertaining scene to go with children. Variety of dolphins, fish of colors and species exotic, crocodiles, turtles, manatees, flamingos, penguins, etc. Short-lived shows, it is suggested to arrive early to gain access to the greatest number of shows. The high price, the food ofreciuda in tb.

  • I found it kind of stuck. Especially for those who have been at Sea World in Orlando. Attractions too short, space for very small animals. And it's not the cheapest No. It's not worth it, unless you are very wonder in Miami with child and do not have what to do same.

  • The exhibits are pretty cool and the shows are really entertaining. The vending machines feels a bit overpriced though ($3.00 for a water bottle!) The animal interactions (swimming with the dolphins or swimming with the seals) are really fun! A great place to go during the weekend with your family. I have been to Miami Seaquarium a lot of times, and in my opinion, it never gets old. Just try to get a coupon or something before you visit, the admission is a bit pricey.
  • It is a nice place to see sea life. Will see 2 shows of dolphins, 1 of whale killers, 1 of seals. If you place in wrong spot can get wet so bring extra outfit just in case. The issue is the air conditioning. Winter is better for weather is not hot but not as a season. Will find alligators, turtles, small and big fishes, manatees.
  • I must say, I was very impressed with the people and exhibits at the Miami Seaquarium when I took my out of town guests there yesterday. I haven't been there for years and I wasn't sure what to expect. The staff are very friendly and the shows are really fun. True, they are a little hokey and not the same as going to Orlando, but that justs adds to the charm. My guests loved the entire day and I am really happy that I went.
  • Am I spoiled or what? I came from Philly and aquariums in Camden, NJ and in Baltimore, MD are way way better. I was really expecting a lot from Florida. C'mon guys, you've got some much stuff going on in Florida, but that mediocre seaquarium is a major let down.
  • @ Michelle Legune After reading your comment , i just have to say before u make any assumption or disrespect people , how about you go to school and learn about them. You stated your daughter will go. Therefore , one day she'll tell you facts and school you on what's real. You sound very confident speaking about these whales like you have a degree. I agree with u @ Rachel Borkbowski .. I would like to thank u guys for the heads up. I've been dying to go for years to see all the shows but I'll take everyone's word for it who are locals in Miami. I feel the same about the Zoo but there's nothing we can do unfortunately.
