I took my partner there as one of her dreams was to swim with the dolphins. Loved the experience so much that we both swam with the dolphins and with the seals. Once again the staff were amazing and helpful and the animals were perfect. Make sure you get to the main show as well to see the worlds only... More

My wife and I visited Sea Life Park on Oahu, on August 20, 2014. We paid for the swim with dolphins experience. We were treated to a memorable experience with the world's only "wolphin" ... a whale/dolphin cross breed! Riding the wolphin was the highlight of my wife's week in Oahu! The trainers were patient and warm, answering questions I... More

This summer, we went to Sea Life Park and paid the extra money for my 17 & 14 year old to have a dolphin encounter. It was a 30 minute encounter in the water with the dolphins where my teens had a chance to interact with the dolphin. They got to shake the dolpin's flippers and give a kiss, as... More

I feel like I've been ripped off. We paid $185/person for the dolphin swim adventure. We had to wait 20 minutes past the time it was supposed to start to give people plenty of time to check in. Yet they tell you to arrive 30 minutes before the start time? Needless to say we sat around for almost an hour... More

Well what can I say?! SUPERB! The dolphin encounter we took part in was well worth the money with memories you could never forget and as for the park itself it is in a beautiful location with mountains and blue sea straddling the park with wild whales playing out at sea in the winter months the parks dolphins have great...

Really enjoyed a great day out at Sea Life Park, nice size one day park with plenty of shows and opportunities to interact with the animals there. Staff were excellent, friendly and informative. Our dolphin encounter with our 5 year old, is a day we will not forget.

My wife and I attended Sea Life Park, and were able to view several attractions after our time in the Dolphin Swim Experience. The Dolphin Swim at Sea Life park was very well-done, with knowledgeable trainers and small, intimate group sizes. For any Japanese park guests, the trainers were fluent in both English and Japanese, which helped in moving along... More

This is no Sea World, but it's a nice place to stop in for an hour or two for a stroll though to see the sea lions and dolphins. My family did the dolphin encounter for $120 each which involved getting a life jacket on, stepping into a pool along the ocean about waist deep with 12-15 other people while... More

I cannot recommend this attraction to anyone to visit whilst staying in Waikiki. From the antiquated facilities, poor refreshment options, overpriced entrance fees, small animal enclosures, amatuer time with the seal show ( one seal ) . The only saving grace is the beautiful location. Don't go.
