Had an absolutely amazing experience yesterday being in the water with this beautiful girl. What a pleasure. We took the tour bus from Waikiki and were fortunate to get booked in for the 14:30 group. The centre itself is looking a little tired however personally I'd rather the money went towards the upkeep and wellbeing of the beautiful mammals etc... More

I loved the feeling that you are a part of the party and all the attention we get. So comfortable and you can get pictures with all the cast members and even THE CHIEF and they are so nice a accommodating and seem like they really like us..

We went to Sea Life Park so our daughter could swim with the dolphins. Your payment for any of the animal encounters grants you access to the park but anyone else joining you to watch has to pay $29.99 general admission for park admittance. You also have to pay $5 for parking. There are several handicap parking spots in front... More

I read quite a few reviews with varying ratings. After being, I don't agree with most. I thought it was an excellent day out. The park doesn't open until 10:30, so a relaxed morning, and stays open until 5:00, so not a long day. Plenty of time to see all the exhibits and catch all of the shows. The park... More

The park itself is old and not very big.. Can see it all in an hour and tours goes for 6 hours so can get a bit boring! I highly recommend swimming with dolphins, the chance to get up close with dolphins and not only touch but to hold onto them as they swim through the water is unforgettable and... More

So disappointing, I used to love this place and it just looks old and run down now. The sea lion show was ok, nothing to rave about. The bird enclosure was good, it was great to get amongst the birds and feed them. The dolphin show was good but I was very disappointed to see they are not doing the... More

I visited the Sea Life Park in order to participate in a sea lion swim. The fact that they offered sea lion swims in addition to the more usual dolphin and shark encounters was a huge thing for me, so right off the bat they got points for that. The shuttle bus picked me up right at my hotel for... More

So we went there with a tour group. Foods and souvenier's very expensive. Our favorite show was a dolphins show, hubby did a dolphin swim and it was fun ! Agree with other comment : the facilities looks tired.

I booked this through Hawaii Vacations and I didn't look at the date before printing it off. When we got there, the attendant noticed that the date was for the month before and they were full and could not accomodate us YIKES! It was a Christmas present for my daughter and grand daughter and we came all the way from... More
