Not enough to keep 3 adults amused for long. Better suited to young families.we checked the web site before going and saved half by bringing in a top from a box of $4 chocolates. So not bad for what we paid but would have felt ripped off paying full price. There are lots of other ways you can spend more... More

My 2 teenage girls tried the Royal Dolphin Swim and swimming with 2 dolphins is the highlight of their HI adventure. It costs a lot but seeing my girls smiles are unforgettable and they never stop talking about it. Recommended to visit for families with small children. You can feed, touch and play with the birds in the sanctuary.

It is a nice park, but I wished there was more. I mean the setting is amazing. You can see the ocean not too far off in the distance, but I didn't feel like there was much to see. There were some stingray pools. Some sea lions performing and some dolphins interacting with guests, but personally I didn't have a... More

This was our first trip to the island and Sea Life Park. Our 2 year old grandson loved every minute there. The adults had a great time too. Your staff was very nice and accommodating. The bird sanctuary was amazing and the care and the information by the keeper was great.

Sea Life Park is a refuge for injured birds and water life, and they do a magnificent job. While their goal is to return each animal to the wild, its not always possible, and the care and attention given all the birds is amazing. The small bird area where visitors feed the smaller birds is fun - totally amazing how... More

This is a small park, but the perfect size and speed for my toddlers. It's definitely run down from its heydays (the birds exhibit doesn't smell that pleasant), but still an enjoyable, low key outing. I bought 2 for 1 admissions for my family and we can go for 1 hour (hit up our favorites) and be back out of... More

This was the first time we had visited Sea Life Park Hawaii (have driven past on our last 4 vacations, but this time decided to give it a go). The price of entry was ok, however there was a buy one get one free entry with the Hawaiian Host candy boxes, so we only needed to pay for one adult... More

What a waste of time & money. We could have done so much better than having gone to this rundown sea life park for the day. It is not swimming with the Dolphins it is keep asking questions so the you fill in your time. You only do 3 things with the Dolphins and they all last no more than... More

Did the dolphin adventure and actually started to cry it was so special. The cost is steep, but a once in a life time splurge. They kill you on the official pictures at the end. That is my only complaint. If they cut hose in half they would make ten times the sales.
