This mangrove habitat exhibit hasvarious Nile crocodiles, endangered sea turtles, native birds, deer andindigenous fish.The seaquariumwouldn’t be a Miami tourist attraction without some celebrities. Bebe, abottlenose dolphin born at the seaquarium in 1956, starred as Flipper in thelong-running TV show of the same name. Her offspring still reside in the parktoday. Another in-house actor, Salty the Sea Lion, made his big screen debut ina 1967 film.

The Miami Seaquariumwas the largest marine park of its day when it opened in 1955. One of the mainattractions was a dolphin show on a scale never seen before. The otherhighlight was the Shark Channel, where you could admire many of theseawe-inspiring creatures up close. Today, those two attractions are as popularas they were over 50 years ago. The aquatic wonderland now attracts over half amillion 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.
