  • We sat on a bus with two kids for a hour to get here it cost us just over $100 aus dollars entry and wow what a dissapointment. Took us barely half hour to walk around the dolphin show was good but th...  more »

  • This place was really great! I don't understand how some people say this place was the worst. I did the dolphin show experience and it was really cool! I got to see the dolphins up close and personal! The staff here was friendly. Prices were reasonable. I got to feed sea turtles. It's kid friendly. I recommend going here!
  • Had a great experience doing the Dolphin Encounter! Its spendy, but if its on your bucket list, its totally worth it! Everyone was super friendly, the shops have great stuff for perfect gifts and souvenirs. Park has lots of fun things for the whole family to do! Lots of hands-on interaction with a variety of animals. Put it on your list of must-see places if you visit Oahu!!
  • My experience at Sea Life Park Hawaii was very good. I went to the Dolphin Cove show which was very cool. The speaker was very interactive with the crowd which made it very enjoyable. There is also a bird cage you can go in where you can feed the birds which was very cool. The park offers a variety of things to do, and I would definitely go again. My favorite thing was probably seeing all of the dolphins and how well they interact with their trainer. I highly recommend it to anyone who is considering on going, it is definitely worth it.
  • This is a nice small place. It sucks that the swimming events have an age requirement even when the children is well behaved and with an adult. But if you're not doing one of the events it's really just like Sea world on a smaller scale. It's great to walk around and though when we went the food and drink stands seemed scarce, they do offer military discount. There's a small kid play area to sit and relax and continue to let kids run around and when it's too hot there's the 3d effect learning area to sit and cool down.
  • this place was really nice. I saw dolphin show.my children was very enjoying to see the show. there were play area.that was so cool for my children. I want to go there again.
