In 1955 Miami Seaquarium® was the largest marine-life attraction in the world at the time of its opening. And now over 50 years later, Miami Seaquarium® is the longest operating oceanarium in the US. The park has grown steadily over the past half century and today offers eight different marine animal shows and presentations each day and provides a fun-filled mix of exhibits, shows, attractions, food and shopping opportunities. Miami Seaquarium®, which attracts more than 500,000 visitors each year, is recognized as South Florida's most popular 'gated' attraction. Miami Seaquarium® is a premier entertainment destination that is dedicated to education, wildlife conservation and community involvement.
