Visit Discovery Bay to learn more about marine conservation. This mangrove habitat exhibit has various Nile crocodiles, endangered sea turtles, native birds, deer and indigenous fish. The seaquarium wouldn’t be a Miami tourist attraction without some celebrities. Bebe, a bottlenose dolphin born at the seaquarium in 1956, starred as Flipper in the long-running TV show of the same name. Her offspring still reside in the park today. Another in-house actor, Salty the Sea Lion, made his big screen debut in a 1967 film.
The Miami Seaquarium was the largest marine park of its day when it opened in 1955. One of the main attractions was a dolphin show on a scale never seen before. The other highlight was the Shark Channel, where you could admire many of these awe-inspiring creatures up close. Today, those two attractions are as popular as they were over 50 years ago. The aquatic wonderland now attracts over half a million visitors each year.
The Miami Seaquarium is on the island Virginia Key, a short drive from downtown Miami. Public transportation is available from many hotels in the metropolitan region. For families, the park is well equipped with three cafés, a snack bar and several shops filled with reference books and souvenirs. Allow for a full morning or afternoon to cover all the attractions and enjoy the shows. The seaquarium is open 365 days a year, so get your tickets today.
