This place is very small and the shows are not very engaging, there are young people running them, maybe students, not exactly professional. It's ok for young children, not many exhibits, not overwhelming, to the point of being boring unless you sign up for an extra activity...

First time at this facility. There are about a dozen exhibits, including the two arena areas. Shows are provided throughout the day. Their mission is wonderful--it's all about marine life conservation. They offer close encounters with dolphins at an extra price. One can walk through the aviary and have birds land on one's head or shoulder. Just be prepared for... More

We paid approx $85 for 2 person entry. Park is very small. Try get there before 11am, as the main dolphin show is at 12pm only. If you miss that, there's precious little else. There's a 2nd hourly smaller dolphin show, but that's mostly just to entertain toddlers. There was a touch tank with nothing clearly there to touch. A... More

We had never been to the Sea Life Park in Hawaii, saw it in the movie, 50 First Dates, and figured we could do other activities on that side of the island as well. So at $45/person approximately... it wasn't worth the money. Most of the sea life was pay to play... want to see the seals? Well, come pay... More

Visited here with the Go Oahu Card. So glad I had the card because I would not otherwise pay to go here. The dolphin show was nice but the attractions were tiny and unimpressive. Customer service was terrible at the food court. The park is in a very scenic area though.

This is a very small park but it is very clean and makes for a good outing. They have plenty of shows and educational lectures. The dolphin show was the best. It may be a small park but the show was first rate! Due to the size, we finished the park in about three hours, including watching a few shows.... More

This is an awesome place for the whole family. We had ages from 3 to 40. It was great for everyone. The dolphin shows where the best. And it is always really funny when you home or back to your hotel and a movie is on and you just got a first class view of the scenery from the movie.... More

Small scale aquatic park. Nothing special. If you have been to Seaworld or Discovery Cove, don't expect too much. However, the 'Chief's Luau' is awesome! Definitely pay the admission for this EVENT! Well worth the money!

We bought and used Oahu Go Cards. Presented our Go Cards at the ticket booth and were handed our wristbands without fuss. We even upgraded the premium dolphin encounter to the dolphin swim. There were only 4 people in our dolphin swim group, but I heard that they can have 10 people, so I guess we were just lucky. We... More
