Not sure if it was time of year or we came after a big storm but so many animals were not out or the exhibit was closed. Honest highlights were the elephant poop and the Komodo Dragons. Just not worth the $19. So disappointed.

Great family day spent with the kids. The weather was beautiful and the Zoo is nicely laid out for strolling. Animals were nice to see and everything was in good shape.

There really is so much to see. The exhibits that have been redone add a lot to the experience! The playground in the middle is always a favorite for my two boys!

I was staying at a hotel nearby during my visit to Hawaii and figured since I'm walking distance from the zoo I may as well check it out. I've always had mixed feelings about commoditizing animals as well as having them in captivity, particularly outside...More

A two to three hour vist should suffice! You can get close to the animals! Bring your own refreshments!!!! Water is $4.75 and pop $6.50..

I did not see any so my suggestion would be no, only service dogs. If you want to go give them a call when you are there they will be only too pleased to answer the question better than I can for you.
