This place is a little out of the way, we went by taxi and it cost 60, so best either catch the bus or go on a tour. I wanted to go because it featured in the movie first fifty dates and my daughter loves aquariums etc. I was completely disgusted. We went and got some food. The food was... More

This is a smaller marine animal park. We swam with the sting rays. This was a lot of fun, we got to touch the rays. The two staff were very informative and we felt very safe. We got to feed the tropical fish after we were done meeting the rays. If I was going to go there again, I would... More

My family and I visited sea life park in Oahu last weekend and found it to be nothing but a waste of money and more importantly in a sad state of affairs. They preach looking after the ocean and the life that calls it their home yet in this park they house a dozen sea turtles in an enclosure that... More

This was the highlight of our trip for sure. The trainer was great. We did the full swim and had a great time. I don't think I would have liked the other dolphin encounters as you just touch them and don't get to swim. We had younger people in our group and the trainer was so sweet with them. We... More

We bought the go oahu card which includes multiple attractions for one rate and the dolphin encounter was a bonus attraction. My boys, husband, brother, sister-in-law, and I took advantage of the opportunity. We were given life jackets and told to stand in the pool on a deck for our encounter but we were not allowed to bring our own... More

My grandchildren and family visited Sealife Park this past June. We booked the Dolphin Encouter with interaction in the pool with dolphin and a unique wolphin(whale/dolphin). The experience was over 45 minutes and were able to give commands, touch and enjoy the antics of these amazing mammals. This was better than my experience in Florida. My only suggestion is don't...

My husband and 10 year old daughter participated in the Royal Dolphin Swim and LOVED IT! It is expensive, but very immersive and involved. The trainers really love the dolphins. They have photographers and videographers there to help capture your memories. Admission to sea life park is included. We also loved the green sea turtles. You can purchase lettuce and... More

Visited the sea life park on our last day in Hawaii and really enjoyed it. We purchased the dolphin encounter package - the cheapest of the three. Got so up close and personal with the dolphins and got some awesome photos. However, when I went to purchase the photos, I believe they were really overpriced and should actually include at... More
