An urban oasis, Miami truly is the Magic City

Miami is a sometimes sandy, often surreal fusion of cultures, cocktails and characters. More than just a beach town, it’s a city on the verge, where construction cranes compete with palm trees and where multicultural city slickers and jetsetters mix with pre-Castro Cubans to the tune of a Samba-soaked deep house remix. The result is as uniquely Miami as the neon-hued art deco relics standing proudly next to the burgeoning billion dollar Jetsons-esque architecture that shapes this city’s future.

This classic marine park located on Virginia Key delights children with seals, sea lions, sharks, alligators, dolphins, parrots, and rescued manatees. Exciting shows and interesting exhibits keep parents and kids entertained for hours. For a special treat make reservations for a Sea Trek Reef Encounter, or a hands-on Dolphin Odyssey.

Stay Editor's Note

The Miami Seaquarium is an attraction like no other. There are not many places where dolphins walk on water, or where killer whales fly. This amazing spot is a world-class marine life entertainment park, exhibiting eight different marine animal shows daily.

Obviously the perfect spot in Miami for the kid in all of us. Not only can guests witness these great sea creatures performing, but visitors are encouraged to participate as well - swimming with the dolphins is a must experience, chance of a lifetime.

Any number of other interactive programs at Miami Seaquarium introduce people to these marvelous fellow inhabitants of our planet. At this 38 acre tropical paradise anything is possible. Don’t miss Lolita the killer whale star of the Seaquarium, TV’s Flipper, let along Salty the Sea Lion. A family adventure awaits visitors to this, one of Miami’s most beloved attractions.
