"Just don’t go "

Small with little attractions and overpriced. The shows are mediocre at best and the animals look sad. This place is in it for the money. The dolphin encounter was way overpriced for what it was. The entire 30 minutes was a photo op just for you to spend MORE money later on to buy them. The kids barely interacted the the dolphin. The “trainers” also don’t seem to care much.

"overpriced, noisy abuse of marine life"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed January 15, 2019 NEW
it starts with $10 to park then $50 to walk into the venue. Staff will ask to take some pics of you to sell to you as you leave. First you'll see flamingos. Pigeons come in droves to feed on the flamingo food. There is hard rock music blasting at some tanks with shows going on where the trained dolphins perform. WTF?! Loud rock music with dolphins? Not handicapped accessible. Staffing seems not indicative of Miami demographics. All those running the entertainment were Caucasians. As we left, animal cruelty activists rightly were picketing outside the parking lot because of abuse to the orcas. Definitely avoid this place if your intention is to have a relaxing look at aquatic life or hang out with older members of your family.

"Sad, just sad."
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed January 15, 2019 NEW
I don't think I will ever visit an aquarium or zoo again. It's just so depressing and I don't want my daughter to think these places are acceptable. Watching that beautiful, majestic killer whale in the large swimming pool is just SAD. Ugh, it is heartbreaking. I felt so bad paying to see this. No more. That whale and those dolphins are meant to swim miles and miles a day. It's just so sad. They look depressed and bored. They have other animals there and they are all locked up like prisoners. Please do the right thing and find another way to spend your hard earned money than donating to animal cruelty. .

"An interesting day seeing the shows and presentations"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 14, 2019 NEW
We enjoyed our day at Seaquarium. While many people have concerns about mammals and fish in captivity, the Seaquarium emphasizes rescue, rehabilitation and release when possible. The shows were entertaining and the presentations interesting. They are well timed so you can walk from one to the next in order to take them all in. Don’t sit in the splash zone if you don’t want to get wet. We spent most of the day there with a lunch break. Tickets are expensive, but you can purchase discounted tickets through Goldstar which we had no issue using.

"Small but nice."

Very nice day trip. Not overly large but very fun and informative. The dolphin and whale shows where great! You get close with the dolphins. Before the show, the dolphins entertain and throw balls out to the crowd! We were standing right in front and my granddaughter loved it! During the show, you WILL get soaked! They emphasize the importance of the ecology if the animals and conservation. All in all, a very enjoyable day.
