Its worth it. The sea lion and dolphin show is amazing. Advice..find coupon and save some money. Grab booklets from airport and stands outside on tourist areas.

We enrolled in a Dolphin Encounter while on vacation in Hawaii, and it was held at Sea Life Park. Having paid $110 each for 7 of us to experience the dolphins up close, we were annoyed that our 8th group member had to pay an entry fee to come watch us in the park. It was not worth the extra...

Shows were amazing, staff and trainers extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I did the Dolphin Encounter and got some hands on experience with the dolphins. It was very worth the 125 I spent. The only downside is their bus schedule and having to wait for so long to go back into town.

A really small park with a few attractions and shows. It does not even take an hour to se what you want to se. The shows are not good. If you are from Sweden and have visited Kolmården, don´t go to Sea Life, it is not half as good. We also saw the people that had paid to meet the... More

Sea Life Park in Waimanalo, Hawaii is a great place for children and adults. It has a beautiful location on the edge of the shore facing the ocean. It was easy to find. Parking was $5. Handicapped parking was free of charge. Entrance fees were 29.99 for adults at regular price. If you are a local resident ("kama'aina") you get... More

This was a fantastic park. It is a small version of Seaworld without all of the touristy hipe. We did the dolphin swim while were there, I would consider this a must do.

I chose the second package for the dolphin encounter, but ended up wishing I'd paid for the most expensive one. The staff was great and the dolphin were well trained and seemed happy. I wish I could have gotten more hands on time with them, but the time I had was great. I ended up with a very nice photo... More

This is very nice park to go to and there are all kinds of marine animals to see and interact with in activities. I went on the dolphin encounter activity and we got to meet a dolphin named Kaleo. We also went to a few of the shows like to the Ocean Theatre and a show in dolphin's cove. The... More

I was a bit put off by the structures. The park is 50 years old and has not replaced any of the enclosures although there is some evidence that they tried to update some things. The animals appeared very well cared for and loved, that made me feel better. On a side note: In general I do not think sea... More

We got there right when they opened. The place is a little run down. We were able to see the sea lion, dolphin, and dolphin/ penguin show. They were not long but very entertaining. In between shows there is not a whole lot to see. I expected more of an aquarium type place but it is not. We did not... More
