Found in the Virginia Keys (in Miami-Dade County), the Miami Seaquarium is not only the place to see animals, but the place to see spectacular shows where you can see them in action! Perhaps this is why it welcomes more than 600,000 visitors every year.
Although some of the exhibitions are the typical type you would expect to see in an Aquarium, such as the dolphin and the sea lion shows, there are others that will truly take your breath away. The most spectacular of the shows, in our opinion, are as follows:
Killer Whale and Dolphin Show: To see "Lolita, the killer whale" play with her trainer isn't something you see every day... in this show, the orca and a handful of dolphins perform team acrobatics! If you don't want to end up soaked, we recommend the rows higher up...
Flipper Dolphin Show: Who doesn't love the charming dolphin Flipper? In this show you'll see the TV star play with his friends, jump, and walk using its tail! It was just here that almost 100 episodes of the TV show were shot.
Manatee Presentation: In this presentation, you'll learn a little more about manatees, as you see this huge animal submerged in the calm of its tank. Nobody would think that an animal weighing 600 kgs could be vegetarian!
As well as the above, you can see some of the other exhibitions on show, such as the adventures of Salty, the Sea Lion, intelligent dolphins doing tricks, or feeding time for sharks, sea lions and crocodiles.
