"Miami Seaquarium Dolphin Encounter "
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed July 20, 2019 NEW
We were really disappointed with the Dolphin encounter experience at the park. We were a family of 2 adults and 2 young children and wanted to tick off the dolphin experience on our bucket list. After spending $450 on the experience we were then asked to spend another $100+ per person to get all the photographs at the encounter. I feel really disappointed in the whole upsell and we ended up leaving the park without purchasing any pictures on the principle that we already spent a considerable amount on the whole experience, which left us with a bitter taste to the whole experience. Also service from one of the food stands was so poor in terms of speed of service I had to speak to Jamie, the operations manager, to help intervene and address numerous issues. We were a family of 4 travelling from the UK and felt really let down especially as the US normally sets the bench mark for customer service and unforgettable experiences!

"Dolphin Encounter/ Waste of Money"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed July 18, 2019 NEW
Took our big group with kids who were very excited to swim with dolphins. Not at all what we expected. Rushed through our experience. Our trainer was not very friendly. Kids were disappointed. At one point during her ride on the dolphin, one of the young girls was told that if she if didn't get it right this time she wouldn't get to go at all! REALLY? That is why we came and what we paid for. I thought she might cry. I was able to talk her through it since her Mom was already at the other end. Unacceptable to talk to children like that. Help them figure it out. That is your job. My other problem with this encounter is that we didn't get to see our dolphins do any tricks like jump, wave, dance or anything. We got photos kissing and holding it's fin. Then swimming with it. Then while we looking at photos, I happened to look out and watch the group after us, and they were getting what seemed like to me the whole experience. The dolphins were interacting with them by jumping in the air, dancing, waving and splashing them. Wow what a total different encounter! Wish ours was like that. Our kids may have enjoyed it more. I feel like I wasted my money! Then I get inside to be gouged on photos. What a joke. I guess the worst part is when I asked to speak to a supervisor only to be told there wasn't one available? Huh? Ok that is weird. I did talk to someone who gave me a manager's email. Not sure what good that will do. I feel like you need to work on your whole dolphin encounter and your customer service. We had a group of 7. So we spent a lot of money to be disappointed. My daughter and I have done this before in Grand Cayman, and it was superb compared to yours. I personally would never recommend this to anyone.

"Swim or Sink with the Dolphins?"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed July 11, 2019 NEW
For years swimming with the dolphins was on my bucket list. As a surprise for our grandsons I decided to book a swim. At $240 a head plus a mark up for my husband and son in law to watch it cost over $900. A bit steep but was willing to pay for the experience. The hairs on the back of my neck stood up when they told me we were going to do 'picture time'. Part of the 'experience' is wasted on them taking pictures to sell you at outrageous prices. And when I asked if my husband could stand behind us to get the pictures on our phone he was denied. For the price of $240 a head they should give you a free picture or allow your family member the same access to take your picture. Or get rid of the photographer completely. That is not why I was there. Ruined my experience.

Good day at the Seaquarium - they are mostly about conservation and rescue so the shows aren't very exciting if you've been to Sea World. Great military discount. The sea lion show was the best of all the shows during the day.
