Spent the day at the Miami Sea Aquarium and had a blast. The best event was swimming with the dolphins. We took a 9 year old, a 7 year old, 38, 39 years old, and one at 64 years old. Each and everyone was so excited to have a perfect experience. They all squealed with delight. Even the dolphins.The crew... More

The park seems to lack any updates since I visited as a child. The shows are cute but the entrance fee seems steep for this small park. Beautiful miami scenery in back ground and a nearby beach so you can make a full aquatic day trip out of it. Shows are nice but offer very limited show times.

I had read all the reviews labeling it rundown and outdated but we were in Miami for the weekend and my wife had found a discount coupon (retailmenot.com) advertising free admission for the month of may for AAA members with proof of membership so we figured we would check it out. Spoke to AAA and were assured all we had... More

We spent the afternoon here as we were trying to fill a day stopping over in Miami before flying home. I don't like seeing the animals confined but they seem to get a lot of interaction from their keepers, and the manatees in particular were rescue animals that had been injured in the wild. The best thing to do is... More

I grew up watching Flipper on TV every morning. So coming here and getting to see dolphins where the show was filmed was super cool to me. The shows were actually really good and the park seamed well taken care of. It's no Sea World but then again your not paying as much either. We went here for half a... More

We mainly came here for the Killer whale which got us DRENCHED!!! We was soaking wet the rest of the day which we didn't mind because it was so hot. It was $40 dollars to get in and yes it is a little out dated with the décor and painting. I really felt like they were living mainly to feed... More

We really enjoyed our afternoon out at the Seaquarium. The Dolphin and Whale show was jaw dropping and great fun. Swimming with the Dolphins themselves was also enjoyable. Very well organised and the trainers knowledgeable and caring about their charges. The cafe was not the best but we had read reviews so where prepared for this. Only really an afternoons... More

Unfortunately we were a bit disappointed. The shows were fun but I'm not sure why it seemed that we couldn't get to one show then the other ... we ended up not seeing all of the shows because the spacing was so far apart and we couldn't take the heat any longer. We enjoyed feeding the sea lions and walking... More
