About Miami Seaquarium:

Though not nearly as exciting as SeaWorld in Orlando, Miami Seaquarium is still a fun place for children to see their favorite ocean animals. Shows are scheduled throughout the day, the best of which are the Flipper Dolphin Show and the Killer Whale and Dolphin Show. Explore the rest of the park to observe vibrant coral reef fish, rescued manatees, sharks, crocodiles, huge sea turtles, parrots, serpents, deer, and more. If you can plan ahead, the Seaquarium WADE program gives adults and older children the opportunity to swim and interact with dolphins.
