The Miami Sea Aquarium is a great trip.... The park is filled with fun things to do and see. The Dolphin Experience was wonderful. about 90 minutes and lots of fun. You learn a lot and spend some great time with the animals. It is clean, bright, comfortable , and all the staff is pleasant and so very kind....

This experience was a highlight of my partner and my holiday! It was exhilarating and a beautiful experience. We were in a group of 6 people and had 30 minutes with the trainer and dolphin. There was a lot of 'hands on' the dolphin and a park member takes numerous photo's of you while you are at the poolside with the dolphin. The moment you took hold of the dolphins fin and it took you from one end of the pool to another, will stay with me forever!
We bought a CD with 36 photos of myself and my partner and the dolphin for $60. There was not a DVD but I was not too unhappy about this because I have heard form other people who have swum with dolphins elsewhere that the price of a DVD was over a £100 to purchase.
This was good value at Seaquarium and also the bonus of seeing all the attractions in the park was included in the price of the swim.

A dream come true!! Spent the whole day at the Seaquarium watching shows and seeing some amazing animals before taking to the water with the most friendly creatures in the world! Made memories that I will treasure forever! My dolphin experience was surreal, smiled all day long! Note: wear sunscreen!

This is truly a once in a lifetime experience. The staff was very kind and showed lots of enthusiasm. You actually get to swim on the back of a dolphin and there are plenty of other interactions with the playful dolphins. This is definitely a highlight of our vacation.

The water was freezing because it was Ocean water. The Dolphins were very friendly.
I wished for more one on one with the dolphins but they seemed to be interested in
the instructors because they had the food.
