It's Hawaii, so of course it's expensive. Still, it'd be nice for what you spend to at least include 1 photo. I've been to several animal encounter/swim/experience and the marine staff here were among the best. The overall experience is one my family will treasure...More

The "one circle" rating is due to the sad upkeep and shows offered by Sea Life Park. What a joke! This place needs a total makeover! They should consider converting it into a water park because the display of marine life is sparse. The food...More

We did the Royal Dolphin Swim and loved it. I don't recommend the 9:15 swim time as the transportation isn't always on time and you feel rushed when you get there. Once again, there were few signs and if you don't know where you're going,...More

It was an ok park-nice to see and swim w animals but you feel like all they want it your money for each activity and photo. And it's costly. The trainers and shows were good but not as good as Sea World.

They do allow friends and family to take as many photos as you want. The trainer will take photos for you but not sure about go-pro. Good luck!
