  • Expected more. The sea lion show is not so good. Dolphin shows are ok but nothing extra. Whale show was unfortunately closed. Adult one day ticket for what I saw is expensive.

  • A few friends and I visited a couple weeks ago and had so much fun! We were helped by Rachel in the front and she went above and beyond in recommending activities for us to do. We ended up doing the sea trek experience with Jimmy..it was GREAT! Jimmy was so nice and so outgoing..he was a phenomenal guide and a had a great personality. It was definitely memorable... We will be recommending this to others!
  • We spent 4 hours covering all attractions and shows. Dolphin was nice. Sea lion show can be improved. Nevertheless, this is about save marine animals and they are doing job about it. Kids loved the baby shark exhibits, shark, turtle pools and coral exhibits. Manatees was incredible to watch. Dropping a star for lower value for the price. If you have a go city pass and time to cover, would recommend few hours here. You can also catch the view of Miami skyline from here.
