The Miami Seaquarium !!

Going back to my memorable moments with the family and updating this older post just for the memories’ sake. This is the Seaquarium of Miami. I even visited friends nearby and of course took my kids there. Then we left for France and done with it. However, if in the area is a must to visit. Let me tell you a bit more about it ok

The Seaquarium is an oceanarium in Miami ,county of Miami-Dade, State of Florida on the island of  Key Biscayne.It is the main aquatic oceanarium of this type in the metropolitan area of Miami. The Seaquarium has a dolphinarium with bottlenose dolphins, white-sided dolphins from the Pacific and an orca, named Lolita of 6,2 meters long and weights 3200 kg. It also displays fish, sharks, sea turtles, birds, reptiles and manatees. Since 2014, it has been owned by the Spanish multinational Parques Reunidos.

You can see the following areas : The Shark Channel one of the most popular attractions in the aquarium when the it opened in 1955; and still going strong. The Tropical Reef holds captive corals and colorful fish, with views of the beautiful beaches of Key Biscayne, At the manatee pool even if shows can be short due to the nature of the shy animals it presents several manatees of the rivers of Florida!

The Top Deck Dolphin and the Flipper Dolphin are shows that feature dolphins. The park has two pools dedicated to bottlenose dolphin shows, the Top Deck Dolphin Show and the Flipper Dolphin Show, as well as a third pool, Dolphin Harbor, dedicated to public interactions with dolphins.TheGolden Dome presents a spectacle of sea lions and seals. The basin hosting the Killer Whale Show, presents Lolita the orca ,and four white-sided dolphins from the Pacific, The Dolphin Odissey allows the most stubborn to swim for half an hour flat with the dolphins, for a fee.

The park was founded by Fred D. Coppock and Captain W.B. Gray and was the second marine-life attraction in Florida. When it opened in 1955, it was the largest marine-life attraction in the world. From 1963 through 1967, eighty-eight episodes of the 1960s TV show Flipper (yes!!) and two movies starring Flipper were filmed at the Miami Seaquarium. From 1963 to 1991, the Seaquarium also had the Miami Seaquarium Spacerail, which was the first hanging monorail in the United States.
