My family and I participated in one of the dolphin encounters on our trip to Hawaii. It was absolutely amazing. The trainer with us (Stephanie) was kind, funny, and very knowledgeable about the animals. It was very clear how much she loves dolphins (and marine life) as well as what she does for a living. She was concerned with our... More

My three year old is obsessed with sharks. When you enter this place, you walk through a cave aquarium full of sharks. Might be his favourite thing ever. We got tickets on the Black Friday sale, so two annual memberships were cheaper than a usual single entry or thereabouts - might be a bit pricey generally considering the size of... More

I am giving this a rating of very good due to doing the dolphin encounter. There is not a lot to see here since it is pretty small. We did the Oahu card with this and saved a lot of money. The exhibits are small with very few animals. They had a cage with lovebirds and cockatiels you could feed... More

They have a very nice dolphin show and a turtle exhibit that I felt was too small for the number of turtles they have there. The price was comparative to other park prices but it is not a MUST SEE unless you just have too much time on your hands and need a half day fill in, time there plus... More

I absolutely despise zoos or any animal in captivity. HOWEVER, when I learned the Park works with the university and breeds turtles to be released into the ocean, I was more open to the idea. Yes, there were sharks, dolphins and seals in captivity, but they appeared well cared for and I realize sometimes people need to see these animals... More

We took a tour bus to the Sea Life Park. Our kids weren't interested in the swim with the dolphins because they had already done it on another vacation. The bus dropped us off for 6 hours. It was a little too long as we weren't doing the swim activity. We did enjoy the dolphin show with the beautiful background... More

Took my family to Sea Life Park and we had so much fun. It may not be a huge place but it's enough to make you smile. Yes the park is a little old but from what I hear, they are renovating it in the near future!! The Sea Lion show was our favorite show to watch. Couldn't get enough.!... More

We had a free ticket to get here so we did. It's so small, and I'm thinking, infant-toddler friendly. Unless you want to swim with the dolphins or encounter sharks! Those are probably the only activities you might be interested in as an adult.

This is a nice little Sea Life park in beautiful Hawaii on the island of Oahu. It is a smaller attraction, but has a lot to offer. Enjoy the entire day with family or friends and stick around for The Chief's Luau in the evening. There are many attractions that the entire family will enjoy. Great for families with any... More

Great way to see and learn about the animals that live in the ocean. You get to see dolphins, turtles, sting rays, Sharks, and sea lions.
