The Sea Life Park - Dolphin Adventure was a lot of fun, you got to go in the water and touch the dolphins, as well as learn a little bit about them. The shows were pretty cool as well as the inclosures for the sharks and turtles and penguins.

Our 9 year old was feeling on top of the world. Set in a spectacular backdrop it is well worth the visit. What I found beautiful, was... More

Just got back from Sea life park and wow! What great entertainment mixed with the perfect amount of education. The setting is beautiful and the scenery breath taking! We had the special treat of an interactive program with the Dolphins and it was SO worth every penny. They are so powerful yet extremely gentle! What a treat. I wouldn't advise... More

The park overall is average, if you are into sea animals it's exciting for a couple of hours until you are left wandering what else? The royal dolphin swim was amazing however, you get up close and personal with the creatures And the trainers are great. Then you go back out to the park and are wandering what to do... More

The Sea life park in Oahu is a small marine life park that exhibits dolphins, sea lions and marine animals. We did the sea lion interaction program and found it to be good but not great. The interaction itself was wonderful and exciting, but the pool in which they do it was smaller than the swimming pool near my home,... More

A remarkable setting, a beautiful scenic drive getting there from Honolulu and a Dolphin encounter perfect for my 5 year old. She got to touch several different Dolphins and even fed them as part of the encounter. The facility itself is small but well laid out and with very good shows and attractive and educational exhibits. If We had any... More

For the money you pay this place needs a face lift and attitude adjustment. A paint job would do wonders for this place - it looks run down. The concession stands closed 2 hours before the park closed. Bought a free refill cup for the kid in our group and the servers were very rude to her. The one good... More

We spent 45 minutes in the water with the dolphins. For me it was a dream come true and I would do it again in a heart beat. If you love dolphins, don't miss this chance.
