We had a wonderful time spending the day at the Sea Life Park. You get to meet the sea life up close. Actually getting to go in the pool with the dolphins is amazing. The price is a bit high but it was a once in a life time experience so it was worth it. We had a great day and it was close to our rental.

The park has a nice view of the ocean.

If you are looking to touch, feel, swim with dolphins then come. And, or if you have kids, then come. The kids probably will have a good time. Otherwise, for the $30 admission (more if you want to swim with the dolphins), it is not worth it. The park is small and limited collections of wildlife. If you have been to Sea World in San Diego, California, this is nothing comparable.

If you are not looking to swim with the dolphins, I would pass.

Our family of 5 (age 8, 5, 2) had alot of fun. We got a 'deal' so the price was good too. I'm ot sure it's worth full price, since it is small if your used to anything on the mainland. We spent more on food than on tickets to get in. But they are "park prices" on everything inside the gate. That being said, the shows were all really good. The kids LOVED it. We would go again if we got another "deal"

This park is quite small so don't expect too much. I suppose if you participate in a dolphin swim it might be more exciting.

The only animals to be seen are turtles, dolphins, sea lions, penguins, and some assorted sea birds. Not much. The two shows we saw were good.

If our entrance fee of $30 goes to the animals then the price was worth it. Otherwise I wouldn't be in a big hurry to visit.

I had the most amazing oppurtunity to be able to experience having an one on one encounter with one of the most stunning mammals on mothers natures planet the bottle noise dolphin.

The trainer was excellent and was really knowledgeable about the dolphins and having touched , kiss and dance with these mammals was absolutely incredible and they are so intelligent it's amazing.

However in having said that as a tourist to hawai i found it to be outrageously priced for the entire experience. You first had to pay an nominal entrance fee to the park itself ( which is not really that fancy a few turtles , fish , rays , sea lions and penguins) which I see in the open ocean back home and then on top of that is the price for the encounter ( which I won't complain about because it was well worth it) however to put the cherry on the cake you not allowed to take any cameras in the water (which I do understand because they don't want anything distracting the dolphins) however!! Then one should have the pictures taken by their photographers included in the encounter price being already over $140.00

Not still pay extra for them and extra for the DVD which can all included cost you up to anther $80. So I hope management really reads this review and understand that even though you offering people from around the world who come visit the park a once in a lifetime experience don't rip epe off wi ridiculous price just because you know they will pay for it.

I am sure the centre makes more than enough money year round to keep it intact and up and running without having to overcharge and take advantage of holiday makers
