Miami Seaquarium Tours

The Miami Seaquarium is a world-class marine-life entertainment park located on the island of Virginia Key in Biscayne Bay, Florida. The 38-acre (15.4-hectare) tropical paradise features a variety of marine life such as dolphins, killer whales, sea lions, endangered sea turtles, manatees, stingrays, and much more. With more than a dozen interactive and educational exhibits, the Seaquarium is guaranteed fun for the whole family. 

The Basics
Founded in 1955, Miami Seaquarium is one of the oldest oceanariums in the United States, and sees over a half-million visitors every year. The vast park works to preserve and protect wildlife while entertaining and educating visitors about the aquatic creatures that live there. The Seaquarium is home to many exhibits, including a tropical reef; the Shark Channel and its feeding presentations; and Discovery Bay, a natural mangrove habitat that serves as a refuge for rescued sea turtles.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Allow at least four hours to see the Seaquarium and all four daily shows. 
  • Frequent shows include killer whale, dolphin, and sea lion performances. 
  • Dolphin Harbor is an especially fun venue for watching marine mammals play and show off. 
  • Ample paid parking is available on-site.

How to Get There
The Miami Seaquarium is located a few minutes southeast of downtown Miami, the Port of Miami, and the airport, on the south side of Rickenbacker Causeway, en route to Key Biscayne. Although it’s located on an island, it’s accessible by car. Public bus transportation is available from hotels throughout the Miami metropolitan area.

When to Get There
Miami Seaquarium is open 365 days a year from 10am to 6pm. The busiest hours tend to be between noon and 2pm, and weekdays are quieter than weekends.

Things to Do Near the Seaquarium 
If you have time, travel into Key Biscayne for the Biscayne Community Center & Village Green Park—which is ideal for kids—or Crandon Park, one of the city’s best beaches. There’s ample opportunity for wind- and watersports near the Seaquarium, too. Stand-up paddleboarding is an activity the whole family will enjoy, and a seaplane tour is a great way to see how all the keys are laid out from above.
