Our Family

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. Once thought solely to be fearsome predators, Lolita demonstrates to park guests the killer whale’s grace, beauty and intelligence.

Miami SeaquariumAlong with Lolita the Killer Whale and TV superstar Flipper, Miami Seaquarium® is home to a South Florida landmark, the Golden Dome. This intricate yet strong dome structure stands 55 feet high, with a diameter of 146 feet and weighs 45,000. World famous architect, Buckminster Fuller, who dedicated the structure in 1960, was the inspiration of the structure’s geodesic design.
