"Entertaining Oceanarium"

The Miami Seaquarium was entertaining and exhibited an array of creatures, like a variety of fish, dolphins, whale, stingrays, penguins, iguanas, flamingos, turtles and tortoises, manatees, and walruses. My husband and I and in-laws visited on a Monday during our vacation. It was not crowded on a weekday, which was nice. Lolita the orca whale, and the dolphins were impressive, beautiful, intelligent and performed a great show! There were groups of school children who were especially entertained by the splashing and stunts. I would have given it higher than a score of 3; however, the tanks and overall facility could be improved upon. They were not pristine and could use scrubbing and major dusting as I saw air vents caked in dust and cobwebs. The water in the tanks where the dolphins swam appeared very cloudy compared to other aquariums I have visited. Overall, it was a good experience and the shows and exhibits were enjoyable.

Let me start off by saying that I am not anti-zoo or anti-orcas in captivity. If you are against these type of locations, that’s cool. Don’t come here- go to a museum. That said- Seaquarium is the love child between SeaWorld and the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. It has the quaintness of Clearwater but the animals aren’t so “end of the line”. (Clearwater takes excellent care of their animals, but many of their animals have been injured too severely to be re-released). There are shows and many animals on display. My daughter and I fed the seals and sea lions. The orca show is much more immediate with a BIG splash zone (sit there and you will get wet). Even the pizza is good. I would recommend for Florida locals to buy your tickets online 24 hours in advance!! I didn’t and felt the sting. They say it will take fours hours at least. I feel that this is generous, but there were hardly any crowds and the splash pads weren’t open. During the summer, it would probably be a good time eater with little ones. Enjoy your visit!

"Animal abuse for family entertainment"

It's been years since I have visited a similar park, however this one made me decide never ever to visit one again! Admission fee of nearly USD50 per person which is a big rip off considering what is on offer. We were met by animal protesters outside and soon found out how right they were. Dolphin shows with very loud hardrock music? Perhaps the kids who run the shows love it, however to me it does seem to be very unhealthy for the dolphins themselves. The other dolphin show was very lame and we didn't even bother to visit the Orca display. ( the one the protesters outside pointed out to us) Also the penguins and the flamengoes were harassed with loud music. And two manatees lived in a very small basin in which they could hardly move. For the rest it pretty limited, old, rundown with lots of wear and tear! Once again with lots of loud music piped everywhere possible. I left this place with a headache! If you do care about the enviroment and welfare of animals please boycott this place!

This Aquarium offers all the large animal appeals of sea world but keeps it in a small high quality atmosphere! Our family stopped in for a day and were immediately impressed with the staff/grounds! My family did the dolphin expirence, which gives your family a chance to interact with dolphins behind the scenes, what an expirence! We kissed, played catch, petted, and learned all about them! The marine life shows are wonderful and my kids loved them! My only downside was the dolphin experience is $$$, which I understand, but they don’t allow you to take your own photos (also understandable) but their photos they take are $$$. They don’t offer a family photo package, they want you to buy per person, for a family of 4 that was over $270 for all 4. For just the two kids we paid $170 and they were kind and gave the family photos as well.
