Fine Older Aquarium with lots of Education – It is suppose to be one of the first aquariums built. Yes, it is small, but when built, there were not regulations on sizes so did the best they could.
I loved the manatees and the rehabilitation of them.
Open your eyes, not your wallets – This place desperately needs renovations. It looks as though the last real update was in the 80s. I was very sad to learn that their main attraction Lolita the killer whale has been in the same dilapidated tank for 40 years.
If you have a conscience you will turn your car around and visit one of the many beautiful parks in here in South Florida. Please, open your eyes and not your wallets.
This place masks itself as an educational facility, but in the end exploits its animals for entertainment. There is nothing educational in dolphins and killer whales splashing the crowd, bobbing their heads to music, and carrying trainers on their backs.
The only reason why the animals perform tricks is because they're hungry. If you own a dog you will know what this means. Animals don't perform tricks on command if their stomachs are full and they're happy.
If you want to see dolphins take your kids to the Keys, Ft Myers, Naples ... Every single time I've visited I saw wild dolphins and it was completely free and completely amazing.
Thank you for reading.
Finally, an education and fun place to take the family – My family and I recently moved down to Miami a couple of months ago and we have been searching and searching for fun and educational things to do as a family. I saw some great and some not so great reviews on Miami Seaquarium, but I decided to give it a try because a friend told me that he takes his family there all the time and they have a great time. I am so happy that I listened to my friend and not some of the negative reviews that I have read. My family had a blast watching the live shows that they give with the whale and dolphins and other fun sea animals. We are very happy to have gotten the opportunity to head to the park and decided to get the year pass. The kids enjoyed the food and its a great value, especially with all the savings.
Family trip to the Seaquarium, good time – My mom, brother and I recently took a trip to the Miami Seaquarium and we had a very good time. We went to many of the shows and were very impressed on how fun and entertaining they were. All of the exhibits were done well and we will be going to the park again.
What an amazing experience! – My son and I had an amazing experience at the Miami Seaquarium.
We are new to town, so we decided to visit this Seaquarium.
We decided to swim with the dolphins, which is an amazing experience, a must do on eveyones list!
We got the year passes and will be going again.
My Son and I love Miami Seaquarium – I was very hesitant on going to Miami Seaquarium based on some of the previous reviews, but I decided to give it a shot and I am so happy that I did NOT listen to all those negative reviews.
My son loved the shows and you should of seen his eyes open up when he saw Lolita do her tricks. I'm so glad that I took him because he learned a lot about whales and dolphins!
I bought the year pass and cant wait to keep coming, maybe monthly... If you live in Miami or around the area you should buy the year pass too, its a steal!
Great Family Experience – My family and I visited the park for mothers day, my mother loved it.
We saw Lolita's show and we were sure to sit far away, we didn't want to get wet!
The trainers seemed to know what they were doing and they kept everyone entertained.
The park is no seaworld, but I wouldn't expect any park to be as big as a Disney park. It was a great size for a Miami park and we had fun, were entertained, and learned some new info on marine animals :)
Dirty dirty dirty – The facilities are run-down and scabby. They treat the creatures there like they are in the aquarium-version of Guantanamo Bay Prison. No sane person can un-see the filth and neglect that charterizes this hole. I was relieved to leave without illness or injury aside from protracted disgust.
Miami Seaquarium – My husband and I attended a convention in Key Biscayne. We won tickets to the Sequarium as a gag gift. We went with a group of adults, who were immediately appalled with it's dilapidated condition. There was mold on the windows, leakage everywhere, loose electrical cords, compromised stabilizers, and the stench of poorly cared for animals throughout our short visit. We were most concerned for the children who attended, and wondered what would become of them if a faulty stabilizer failed. It was deplorable and got worse when we viewed a whale, lovely creature, held stagnant in fish tank not as large as our hotel's pool. At first, I thought it was some kind of awful joke, but found out later that this lovely creature has been held there for approximately forty years. When I voiced my concern, the aquarium's employees became defensive and rude. This truly turned out to be a GAG gift, and I have hoped, ever since our visit, that this awful roadside zoo, will close down for the sake of it's patrons and those poor animals. Oh my, it is awful. How do they get away with that?
Freedom for Lolita? – dont support this decaying,rusted,rotting and leaking,outdated sorry excuse for a theme park the whale cannot even swim
