"Sad and Disgusting"

I wish there was a way to negatively rate. This place is an atrocious nightmare for these poor creatures sentenced to carry out their lives here. The orca tank isn’t even up to government standards for size (which are still awful). Miami Seaquarium has been promising to build a bigger tank for poor Lolita since 1978 and not one thing has been done. PLEASE do not support these sick criminals or any other organization ripping these smart, social creatures from their families. Orcas are very sociable animals by nature and poor Lolita has been confined to a life alone, in a bath tub. I pray this place is shut down. #Freelolita

Miami Seaquarium is small and dirty. We visited on a Saturday and a couple of the exhibits were closed, a feeding station was closed, and the glass viewing areas are dirty. We were standing in line at a restaurant and a security alarm went off telling people to evacuate the building, no one moved. Good news is the dolphin swim. It was well organized, try not to get the 3:15PM time slot as they put us on the back side of the pools and the glare from the sun was very distracting for picture taking. Of course, their pictures for $95-135 came out great. Staff was a little cranky by the end of the day too. This is definitely NOT the best Florida has to offer. $4.27 for a 20oz Gatorade! Also check area activities to make sure nothing major is going on in that area as we were stuck in traffic for 35 minutes due to a boat show and Republicans meeting at the Ritz. Very heavy security.

Renovations still going so felt a bit lost. Bathrooms need a update but it was interesting and kids liked seeing animals. The Orka needs a bigger pool and I hope that is being upgraded. Dolphins was good show but Sea Lions best show of them all. Staff mostly friendly.

We had a few hours to kill before a flight so quickly googled aquariums and headed there - we were so devastated to see and orca in a tiny tank doing tricks - this place is not an aquarium that (as they state) are involved in conservation- this place is a million miles from that - my daughter is who is 8 burst out crying when she saw the orca - how can they keep these creatures like this - if you love animals and sea life don’t go 😢

"Awful dirty tanks and sad animals"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5

The tanks are dirty and the whales are sad. Whales are sociable animals and should not be kept in this way. They dont tell you this when you are looking at the advertisements and I thought it would be a happy place. You can see the whales sadness and when you read about the back story it is truly heartbreaking. I wouldnt go again. My children tried to ask staff about the whale and how she was taken from her mother in the wild as a calf. Also why she is being kept on her own when whales are sociable and should live in pods with their families. The staff were really rude to my daughter and made her cry. Then we went to eat and food was really overpriced. The chips were half cold and they were soggy. After lunch I saw a trainer shouting at a dolphin that wasnt doing as they wanted. Ovrall an AWFUL experience. This is outdated treatment of animals. We have enough awareness of the intelligence of these animals than to treat them as slaves for petty 'entertainment'. I cant believe I paid for this! Please choose to go on a boat trip and see wild dolphins instead. Don't pay for this abuse.
