This park was well run with several interesting displays. The dolphin and sea lion shows were well rehearsed and entertaining. The standard admission price of $39 is a bit steep, but if you're a Costco member, you can get a package of 4 admissions for $49.99 at Costco. The only bad experience was waiting in line for 25 minutes at... More

For. 1/2 day even with little kids this works. The displays are accessible enough that the little ones can climb out of their stroller and enjoy the animals. We were easily able to explore the whole park in 2.5 hours. I don't know if we lucked out but when we showed up at 2:00pm it was not crowded at all... More

We really enjoyed our trip to Sea Life Park. We visited the Monday before Christmas and it was very quiet so we didn't feel like we had to fight crowds or jockey for seats at the shows. I particularly loved the sea turtles in the pool, but the dolphin show and sea lion show were awesome as well. We did... More

My partner and I travelled to Hawaii from WA and swimming with the Dolphins was on the top of my list of things to do as they are my favourite animal. Once we arrived we were told to remove jewelry however this was never advertised in their brochure. I explained to them that my helix piercing (cartilage on top of... More

This place was a lot of fun. Got to see a lot of sea life. Also had the opportunity to feed birds which was pretty cool. The dolphin and seal show was great. Beautiful view of the water and the pineapple ice cream was delicious. Would go again. Decent prices and discount for military. You can bring your bathing suit... More

If not for the Dolphin trainer I had on my dolphin excursion I'd give this a 1 rating. I repeatedly tried to contact the venue regarding questions and they NEVEER answer an email. The agents on the phone were rude as well. Note that if purchasing multiple types of encounters you pay for an admission to the park with each... More

I was very excited to visit Sea Life Park, as I am a huge 50 First Dates fan (Adam Sandler/Drew Barrymore). We visited to enjoy the sea life, with no expectation for anything related to the film. What we found was a facility in great need of better management. It was very clean, but there are few exhibits. And what... More
