This was by far the worst “Seaquarium” I’ve visited. We started by catching the whale show- which was awful. The tank was so small and the show was unimpressive. I thought the whale had a bigger pool it could go in the back but nope- that huge whale is stuck in a tiny tank... and it shares it with 3 dolphins. We then moved on to the reef aquarium- the water was so filthy you couldn’t see the fish. You had to literally press your face onto the glass to see the fish. Facilities were dated and it really shows. We did the dolphin encounter package and it was just ok. We expected a little more but by the time we went in, i just wanted to leave the place and be over with it. Photo package by the way was about 85 per person- online link for pics costs 70. I left feeling duped, guilty and disgusted. Duped because I believed in their “humane” certification- I would hope the certifying agency pays a surprise visit because there’s nothing humane about that place. Guilty because I contributed to that poor whale being kept in deplorable conditions. I sat watching in horror thinking of how the creature lives. Disgusted because I can’t believe they charge so much for a sad, dirty display. Not worth the money and the traffic I sat on to get there. Skip this “attraction”, save your money and do something else.

This place is disgusting. It’s not an aquarium it’s an “attraction” and a poorly kept dirty unethical one at that. The pens are small and dirty. Not many things actually live in this aquarium. They are just surviving. I got tears in my eyes when I watched the dolphins swim in their tiny pool looping over and over and over endlessly. I didn’t know when we dropped in for a quick visit what kind of place this was. Want to pet a penguin? Just pay $$. Want to touch dolphins just pay $$$. These poor animals have no say in being groped by the public for money. I found out after I left that the orca is living in the smallest tank in the USA. Only 4X her length. I didn’t even know they had an orca. That would have given me a clue what kind of place this is. It’s a bunch of poorly cared for animals doing stupid human tricks for a crowd. This type of “entertainment” I thought went out of business 20+ years ago. This place is dated dirty run down and small. Oh and they charge $50 a person for general admission. I’ve been to nicer real aquariums for less. I expected to see fish and sea life swimming in fish tanks with natural habitats what I saw was blue concrete tanks that were dirty. Oh and my favorite was the random baby gate used in the penguin enclosure over the door. I didn’t make it to the orca tank or the manatee tank. I was too angry. I left and demanded my money back as any who accidentally gets sucked into this dump should do. I’m surprised this place is still open. It should be shut down.

The Miami Seaquarium has a variety of sea animals on display as well as a collection of colorful parrots and iguanas. Shows are scheduled throughout the day, so it is best to plan for several hours to walk from one performing or display area to the next. The staff making presentations were enthusiastic and friendly.. Ecology and conservation are part of all presentations, and important rescue and rehabilitation for injured sea animals occur on this site. The Seaquarium is an excellent place to experience and learn about animals from the waters which surround Miami.

"Day at the park AND a Dolphin Swim"

We took our family of 8 to the Miami Seaquarium for a Dolphin swim. The entire experience was unimpressive. I have been to Florida many times to visit family and each time we fill our week with attraction activities. We have done several dolphin swims at other locations. Those locations also had Dolphin and Sea Lion shows. Very few of the snack shacks or ice cream places were open. We started to get hungry just after noon and we had to search for an open facility. When we found some that were open, the staff was lazy. Several times we went to a counter for a drink or a snack. The staff most of the time were on their phones as we stood at the counter staring at them. When they realized we were there, they were less than excited to get us what we wanted. The Dolphin and Sea Lion show were very short. Most Dolphin and Sea Lion shows talk about Sea conservation and the importance of keeping it clean for the animals. However, that was basically all of these shows were focused on. The shows were much shorter and much less fun than any other Dolphin or Sea Lion show I have ever been to. The Manatee Lagoon was disgusting... The Dolphin swimming experience was no where near what it has been at other places in the past. For an actual swim with the Dolphins (which is much more expensive than an interaction) you get to get pulled by one Dolphin from one side to the other of a small lagoon. Other Dolphin Swimming experiences I have been to in the past includes much more interaction with the Dolphins during the swim. I watched a Dolphin experience group during their interaction while my daughter was getting ready for her swim and I think they actually got to interact with the dolphin more than my daughter was able to during her Swim. There are places that offer all of these experiences that are so much better than Miami Seaquarium. Head down to the keys, its worth the extra drive.
