Maimi Seaquarium

Its Miami’s premier attraction! Its a place where dolphins fly, where fearsome moray eels lurk in coral reef caverns, where shimmering schools of exotic fish dance through underwater seascapes, and its the only p;lace where you will see the graceful beauty of a Pacific white sided dolphin combined with the awesome power of the three ton killer whale.

Its a world class marine life entertainment park with eight different marine animal shows and presentations offered each day!

Located just ten minutes from downtown Miami on beautiful Virginia Key, we offer visitors hours of fun – and it’s educational too. Across 38 landscaped acres, the marine life entertainment park provides a fun-filled mix of exhibits, shows, attractions, food and shopping opportunities that have made it a Miami institution.
