Discover the fascinating tropical paradise that is the Miami Seaquarium with this full-day admission ticket. Inside this world-class marine-life entertainment park, explore the many different seascapes of the earth and experience the incredible natural wonders that lie beneath the surface.
The Miami Seaquarium features an abundance of marine life. There are turtles galore: sea turtles, green sea turtles and Kemp’s ridley sea turtles, plus loggerhead turtles, leatherback turtles and hawksbill turtles. Then check out the popular Pacific and bottlenose dolphins and killer whales, often referred to as orcas. Plus the pinnipeds — that is seals, sea lions and walruses — and the harbor seals and California sea lions. And, of course, there are Florida manatees.
Get up close with these incredible creatures in one of the animal encounters. The Florida Seaquarium offers several options to interact with dolphins. Shake hands, share a friendly kiss, even try out some training signals in the Dolphin Odyssey or Dolphin Encounter. There’s also a Sea Trek Reef Encounter, an underwater walking journey through a 300,000-gallon tropical reef, and a Seal Swim.
The featured shows include Top Deck Dolphin, where bottlenose dolphins perform breathtaking leaps and rolls; the hilarious Golden Dome Sea Lion, featuring Salty the Sea Lion and his Reef Rangers; TV superstar Flipper’s Dolphin Show, highlighted by dolphins that jump, spin, tail walk and flip, all set to popular beachside melodies; and Killer Whale and Dolphin, the only place to find Pacific white-sided dolphins living, playing and performing alongside a killer whale.
Finally, the exhibits include Shark Channel, Tropical Reef (a 750,000-gallon saltwater aquarium teeming with reef fishes of every size, color and description), Manatees, Seal and Sea Lion, Discover Bay (sea turtles, Florida birds and other wildlife in a natural mangrove forest environment), Tropical Wings (cockatiels, macaws, flamingos and the resident peacock named Peeps), Tropical Fish Aquariums, Crocodile Flats, Stingray Exhibit, Sharky’s Sky Trail and Salty’s Pirate Playground.
