“Great aquarium”
Reviewed 9 January 2013

This is one of the best aquariums we've been to. Loved the sharks. The cost was very reasonable. Our entire family enjoyed this.

“Lots of variety”
Reviewed 10 December 2012

Lots of local species, gives a good idea of what people can see whether snorkling or scuba diving providing humans don't interfere with the environment. Presentation was excellent, the audio tour was very helpful in explaining things, along with the information boards. Very well laid out. Did feel it could have had a little bit more. So glad no whales or dolphins were in here!

“A Must See!”
Reviewed 2 December 2012

We easily spent a full 5 hours at this fantastic place. There were animal feedings with personnel to answer questions and give educational tidbits. The place has many great exhibits with some hands-on activities for young and old alike. The layout is great in that you can go back to something easily if you wanted to find out more. There is a fantastic gift shop with lots of things to chose from at different price ranges. Even after going on a snorkeling trip and swimming with sea turtles we were hungry for more information about the animals that live in the big blue ocean!

“Very nice”
Reviewed 22 November 2012

Show was very good, not Sea World caliber, but worth the money. Prices too high, almost gouging. Lots of Japanese there.

“Awesome and interactive”
Reviewed 23 May 2012

PEEPS!! Aloha! This place is an interesting interactive/educational place for kids. The 5th grade class I took was enthralled from start to finish. There was classroom portions, dissections, aquarium trip and a scuba diving excursion to Molokini! ENJOY!!
