There are so many things to do and see in Miami,FL. Here are 4 Reasons to Visit Miami Seaquarium and make it a must stop on your list. Although I was given complimentary admission to the Miami Seaquarium to facilitate my review, my love of this place is 100% mine.
Living in Florida, there is no shortage of fun Summer activities to enjoy with the family. Summer is a great opportunity to get out and explore! I was excited to take my kids to the Miami Seaquarium for the first time. The Miami Seaquarium is a great place to spend a day, with its 38 acres located in gorgeous Key Biscayne, Florida. With all there is to see and do, here are 4 reasons to visit the Miami Seaquarium with your family.
- EXCITING SHOWS
There are 4 great shows at the Miami Seaquarium. My kids love dolphins, so I knew we had to make it to the Top Deck Dolphin Show. We saw adorable bottlenose dolphins leaping, rolling and doing tricks. The dolphins can be seen from the deck during the show or you can look at them underwater at the lower level. Check out the Killer Whale and Dolphin show or the Golden Dome Sea Lion show, too. Miami Seaquarium recommends that you allow at least 4 hours to be able to enjoy all of their marine life shows and exhibits.
2. ANIMAL EXHIBITS AND ENCOUNTERS
We walked around and saw lots of animals, like turtles, crocodiles, stingrays, dolphins, and Florida Manatees. With a separate ticket, you can meet and interact with penguins, dolphins, and even swim with seals!
A trip to the Miami Seaquarium is full of opportunities to learn more about marine wildlife. As you meander through the park you will see lots of information about each type of animal. My kids had fun listening to the sounds different types of dolphins make and how they communicate. Did you know that dolphins do not have vocal chords? Or that a Killer Whale is a type of dolphin? I didn’t know that either! Also, in every show, the presenter gives facts about animal conservation and tips on what you can do to help.
The kids can run and play at Salty’s Pirate Playground. For bigger kids, Sharky’s Sky trail is a multi-level aerial obstacle course. It’s always a great idea to give kids a chance to run around and have some fun. While it’s great to see exhibits and shows, I like letting the kids take the reins for a little bit and just see what they come up with.
Check out one of the souvenir photos you can purchase when you leave the park.
