The experience started great because I got in for free with my PD/EMS badge/ID which I truly appreciate. Thank you for that. The flamingo exhibit is right up front which is fun and well put together. Not sure what they do with the Flamingos in bad weather for shelter as the exhibit is not covered at all. Generally speaking, the tanks of fish were clean and nice to look at. Where my heart began to break and frustration set in was the Manatee exhibit. (Pictured with review) The manatees are in a round pool with no stimulation and really no space to swim about. There is a female manatee there thats over 50 years old and a baby manatee that is being nurtured by the older female. They both really werent moving and didnt look "happy". I was lucky enough to enounter wild manatees in Key Largo and their behavior was starkly different from those here at the Seaquarium. Also there is the conversation to be had about the lone Orca in a small tank doing tricks for the public viewing pleasure. In no way can anyone really honestly say this is OK. I won't go on a tangent but needless to say I did not attend a showing of the Orca but did walk up to it and saw the whale briefly. Its just beyond sad to see. The parrot area was spectacular and great because you can get very up close and personal with them. They look happy and healthy. The penguins were difficult to see as the viewing area was small, through thick, somewhat dirty and scratched glass. They would be so much better to see if the exhibit was open without it being completely enclosed. Places like Mystic, CT aquarium have a nice exhibit that's open and you can see the penguins in many different view angles below and above water. No, I am not PETA and yes there were parts of the Seaquarium we enjoyed. I won't be back for the simple fact of the condition of the manatees, dolphins, and orca.

"Appalling, sad, and disgusting "aquarium""

The tanks are extremely dirty and shockingly small. It made me sick to think about these animals being forced to live here every day until they die. This looks like daily torture of these poor creatures. DO NOT spend your money here. I looked this place up after our visit and read that the other Orca they had killed himself by bashing his head into his tank repeatedly! And then they say the Orca they have now is "thriving." Yeah right. She looked truly miserable and lonely. :(

Liked what we saw but as it rained I’m sure we didn’t get the most out of the venue. We were just unlucky. Dolphin, killer whale and sea lion shows were excellent

This place is a lot of fun and the animals do some amazing things. It is always great to see Flipper! The whale looks sad though. I do hate seeing any animal in captivity but the workers seem to really care about the animals.
