Entertaining shows which my 2 year old loved but the exhibits were very small and rather run down so for the price you pay (parking is in addition to entry) it becomes a rather over-priced day out. Spectacular scenic views along the drive from Waikiki to Sea Life Park and also at the park.

Took the kids here to see the Hawaiian sea life. The park is a bit run down but looks like they are doing some renovations on the exhibits. I still can't decide if it was worth the ticket price. The dolphin show was cool, the kids loved it. The seal show was neat but was out in the sun in... More

We went to Sea Life Park on May 23, arrived about 11:00 am. We arrived just a bit too late to watch the release of the baby sea turtles back to the ocean. Waited a little bit to watch the Sea Lion show. The show lasted about 40 minutes, it was fun, but nothing spectacular. We were dissapointed to know... More

Sea Life Park has been around since the 1960s. The park is a bit dated in appearance and admission fees are pricy, especially if you plan to swim with the dolphins. They do offer local resident rates, yearly passes and occasional specials. The location is at Makapu'u Point with lovely views of the ocean. Shows begin at 10:00 and continue... More

We arrived about an hour before they closed. We weren't planning on going there that day but ended up in the area. We still had a great time seeing one show. The seals really know how to boogie! We were able to walk around and see all of the other animals and hang out with the birds. The staff were... More

The bird feeding aviary was the highlight of the day. Beyond that it was meh. Really geared to little kids and people who have never seen fish. Or should I say sea life beyond their dinner plate. Found that our trip to Turtle Beach was more interesting to see nature. Food service was terrible. One person taking order, cooking and... More

We visited with our family of five (kids 14,11 and 10) in April 2017. The kids did the basic dolphin encounter which they thoroughly enjoyed. There were 10 people in the group with one dolphin and the entire session lasts about 30-40 minutes where you get to kiss the dolphin and learn hand signals. The trainers were very good and... More

Also a bit expensive for the amount of things that there are to do ... they have really based the park around people doing sessions with the dolphins etc ... if you don't do that then its potentially going to be a bit flat. Miss 11 did a dolphin experience where you go in the pool and get to kiss... More

Negatives : 1) Photos are a rip off they charge $18 per print per person, for some odd reason you... More
