"Free Lolita. This place facilitates cruelty to sentient creatures."

Lolita the orca should be freed. Look and grasp the size of the swimming pool she's in. From swimming for tens of thousands of square miles, living with her entire family… to this. For her whole life. Just imagine. It's sick. If you pay to go to this place, or give this place any rating higher than a poor one, you are facilitating this cruelty. Dolphins belong out to the sea either. They're not playthings.

I cannot recommend this enough! I went on Friday 5/3/2019 with my 10 year old daughter and she has not stopped begging me since then to take her again!!! It is an amazing experience with the undersea world with no diving certification required. You are never alone and the helmets allow you to remain on the ground with the comfort of breathing normally. I am a big coward with all things sea creature and I did it!!! This allowed us to be one with stingrays, nerf sharks, eels, fish and so much more! We cannot wait to do it again! Thank you for this memorable experience!

"Not worth the money"

I took my kids 5 & 8 and they had a good time but definitely not over $100 for 1 adult and 2 kids kind of fun. Oh plus $10 parking fee. There are very limited exhibits to see due to several of them were closed. The restaurant that sells hot (and cold) food was busy and extremely slow service. The kind you order at the counter, receive food and go to the table, not the full service restaurant. After patiently waited on the line to order with 2 kids going crazy for 15 minutes, the line did not move... not at all, so we left to go to the restaurant across only to find out it was closed. So we dragged our feet in Miami heat to the hotdog stand and once again found it to be closed...on Sunday!! Now with hungry tired hot kids, I had to find food fast. Luckily the pizza place was open and we finally ate, and the pizza was decent. Shows were just ok. Nothing great about it. It’s fun but not $50 worth fun. Even kids wanted to leave after 2 hrs.

Small park compared to some. Great shows ongoing. Good Flamingo exhibit - happy for that since the hurricane 1.5 years ago chased most away in the wild. They are doing good work here rehabilitating Manatees who have been injured in the wild. Fish tank has a barracuda that looks ferocious.
