“Great place!”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

Me and my husband don't know swimming so never did snorkeling or of course scuba diving. We wanted to see the marine life so went to the Sea Life park. It was a great place. The Dolphin show and the Sea lion show were amazing. We were surprised seeing how good these animals were understanding the instructions and performing great feats. Sea lion acting like James Bond and dancing to Micheal Jackson's song was our favorite. Also don't miss seeing wholphin (dolphin+whale mix) while you are there.

“Give it a miss if you aren't going to the Chiefs Luau.”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Sad seeing beautiful animals roaming around in their little, watery concrete pools. It's time we stopped caging animals for our amusement. Go on a boat tour and see them in the wild, where they should be.

Spent the most wonderful day at the park. It's smaller than Sea World and is much more intimate and you get much closer to the animals and to the trainers. Did the dolphin swim and sea lion swim. Both were excellent and the shows are very entertaining too. An added bonus is the hump back whales in the distance.

“A highlight of our trip”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Great family attraction. Like a smaller, Hawaiin version of Sea World. You can get as up close and personal as you like (for a price). General admission is reasonable at $29 per person.

“Great experience”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

There was three of us doing the dolphin experience and it was fantastic. Great staff, beautiful animals. The rest of the park is very small but worth a wander. Don't catch the transfer bus or you are there all day, be mindful though that a taxi will cost $60 from waikiki. The public bus will take you there for $2.50 and even though it takes an hour it is a scenic drive
