We took our visiting out of state relatives to this place. What a colossal ripoff! Few animals. Lame shows. Many of the food kiosks closed. Do NOT waste your money.

Had visited this place over 20 years ago. Came back with our son, had a great time. Some facilities look like they have not been remodeled or touched since then, but overall we had a great time. The shows were great, and the weather was even better (no control over that). There’s a lot more food options now, not great, but will hold you up while you’re there!

Nice shows, good animators. Unfortunatelly the killer whale was closed and the entry is not cheap but we liked that. Our 1,5 year old sun liked the playground more than the showes😂

"Seaquarium badly needs revamping"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed October 21, 2019
That this place still relies on Flipper's long gone heyday fame says a lot about it. The Seaquarium sorely needs revamping of its facilities and concepts. Yes Flipper was cute, back in the late sixties and early seventies and the 1995-2000 run was cute but not memorable. It's time to rethink the Seaquarium as it has become stale, boring. On the plus side for us, as locals, we can enjoy experiences like the dolphin swim and reef tour at a fraction of the cost of similar experiences in let's say discovery cove in Orlando but, the experiences are not comparable because discovery cove, unlike the Seaquarium, is fresh, more appealing to families. Our recent visit was on a very quiet weekday. Service during our visit was largely OK. The trainers did their best and the rest of the staff was mostly helpful albeit a few seemed just disinterested. Food? That's a topic worth discussing as it's a rip off in price and quality or lack thereof. We didn't finish the food we ordered because it was just terrible!! Another issue was that some of the experiences were closed but one wouldn't know until you're at the parking booth. How come? That's just terrible nowadays when the Internet could let visitors know what's closed and decide whether to go on any given day or not. Merchandise is, like all attractions in Florida, cheap junk sold at high prices but what takes the cake is the pricing of the photos taken during the experiences. Basically, we were looking at more than $50 per person to buy the "book" with pictures taken during the experiences. that was more than $150 for three people. Really? I know the place must make a profit but this is absurd. My first visit to the Seaquarium was in 1988 and our recent visit was like deja vu and that's not a good thing as attractions must reinvent themselves and I hope the Seaquarium does this, soon.

I’m here in Miami with my grandkids, and my disappointment is immeasurable, and my day is ruined. Half the park was closed, there was a half-dead turtle under a bridge in an extremely tiny tank, The animals’ living conditions were worse than England’s in Europe. AND FOR A PRICE OF $200, it just breaks my tail. We stayed there for about 30 minutes before my grandkids started crying to leave, just go to a pet store and you’ll see the same fish, except they actually have a will to live.
