The Miami Seaquarium is definitely worth your visit. Here, you will see dolphins, sea lions, fish and of course “Lolita” the Killer Whale. If you?ve ever been to Sea World then you might not be impressed. But Sea World is over the top if you ask me. Anyway, we think that going to the Seaquarium is a great way to spend a day.

The Killer Whale and Pacific White-sided Dolphin show is spectacular. On a hot day it is fun to go in your bathing suit and try to get splashed by Lolita (brrrrr!). Meet “Salty” the Sea Lion & his Harbor Seal co-star at the Golden Dome. Also, TV’s Flipper is ready to make your acquaintance & entertain you at his show in the lagoon (which served as the set for the movie!). Check out the Top Deck Dolphin show where you can see the dolphins up close. They?ll come up and try to talk to you before the show and you are just a few feet away. Make sure you are looking at the walls as you go – they are a beautiful aquarium filled with Atlantic & Caribbean fish.

Sharks, Manatees, Tropical Fish & Reefs, Crocodiles, Alligators and much more all await your audience. For the adventurous, you can touch, feed & even swim with the dolphins in the Dolphin Encounter Program!

If you reside in South Florida then make sure that you go in February. The Seaquarium usually runs a special in that month where you can pay the price of admission for one day and get a pass for the rest of the year.
