Florida-themed webcams to enjoy 

Zoo Miami

Our beautiful zoo offers a Meerkat Webcam! The adorable critters became popularized by the Disney character, Timon, from “The Lion King,” as well as the Animal Planet show, “Meerkat Manor.” 

The webcam was down temporarily, but now it's back and full of meerkat cuteness! 

Miami International Airport

Aviation enthusiasts can catch all the action at one of the world's busiest airports. Huge, double-decker Airbus A380s roar along the runway in front of the camera, among other aircraft, and you can hear full-throttle engines during takeoff and landings. 

Florida Keys

There's so much to see in the Keys! Check out Hemingway's house (and cats!), the Southernmost Point, Galleon Marina, as well as multiple resorts and hangout spots. 

Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium

Get a peek at the daily shenanigans of sea creatures including otters, manatees – and even sharks! This is a cool idea if you can't make it to Sarasota, which is where this aquarium is based. 

Coral City reef

A special underwater camera streams live from this urban coral reef in Miami, thanks to a public art and scientific research project by Coral Morphologic and produced with Bridge Initiative and Bas Fisher Invitational. Almost like watching a fish tank, this one can be quite calming!

Palm Beach Inlet

This webcam lets you observe cruise ships, container ships, pleasure boats, sail boats and mega yachts – presenting a day in the life at the busy Port of Palm Beach. Another perk of this webcam: It allows you to check for live views of current weather conditions, in case you're traveling to that area.
