Top Deck Dolphin
Thrill at the high-flying antics of bottlenose dolphins as they make amazing leaps and rolls on the Rock n’ Roll Cruise. During the Rock n’ Roll Cruise, guests marvel at the gymnastics of these athletic marine mammals as they brave “rough waves.” Pay attention while your captain navigates you through your voyage; he’ll tell you if there are any large splashing waves! The dolphins on the Top Deck can be seen from above and below the water at any moment of the day. Keep your eyes peeled; depending on when you arrive, you might be able to spot a baby dolphin.
Golden Dome Sea Lion
Salty’s Reef Range – Enjoy the hilarious adventures of Salty the Sea Lion and his Reef Rangers. The sea lion and seal stars get to show off their athletic and humorous abilities as they hunt the coral for a littering diver in this comedic playlet. You too can be a Reef Ranger by helping protect our waters from trash and recycling whenever possible.
Flipper’s Beach Bash – TV Superstar Flipper and his Atlantic bottlenose dolphin friends perform in the lagoon which served as the set for the original Flipper TV show. The Flipper dolphins demonstrate the grace and intelligence of Atlantic bottlenose dolphins as they celebrate with a beach bash. The show includes jumps, spins, tail walks and flips, all set to your favorite beachside melodies. Hang ten and catch some waves, surfing dolphin style with Flipper and his friends. Kids, if you’re lucky you may have the chance to meet Flipper himself!
Killer Whale and Dolphin
Celebrate Miami – There’s only one place where you’ll find Pacific white-sided dolphins living, playing and performing alongside a killer whale! Lolita the Killer Whale and her exotic Pacific white-sided dolphin buddies will astound and surprise you as they demonstrate their natural elegance, beauty, and intellect via the unique bond between animal and trainer. Guests may see Lolita and her trainer “walk on water” and appreciate everything there is to do in Miami!
There are other areas in the park, where Miami Seaquarium® presents a one of a kind experience. It is the only place in the world where graceful Pacific White-Sided dolphins can be seen performing alongside a three and a half ton killer whale, Lolita. A resident at the park since September 24, 1970, Lolita, is 20 feet long and tips the scales at 7,000 pounds. She performs each day at the park’s Whale & Dolphin Stadium along with her Pacific White-sided companions. Lolita exhibits to park visitors the killer whale’s grace, beauty, and intelligence, which were once regarded to be purely terrifying predators.
Miami Seaquarium® is home to a South Florida landmark, the Golden Dome, as well as Lolita the Killer Whale and TV superstar Flipper. This ornate yet sturdy dome structure stands 55 feet tall, has a 146-foot diameter, and weighs 45,000 pounds. Buckminster Fuller, a world-renowned architect, was the inspiration for the structure’s geodesic design, which was dedicated in 1960.
