    This is a small sea life aquarium. I bought a great deal but I would be really disappointed if I had to pay the whole price. I think it is really small. Maybe in less than an hour you can walk it all....  more »

    So children want to play with the dolphins, was booked on the day of your birthday. Part of no. 1 in the afternoon. 11:25 arrived at the Hyatt Regency Hotel pickup, I went by bus. Westerners at 6 or 7 percent of Japanese were 2 or 3 percent. Many Westerners, I was surprised. Program ever, watching a Shark Aquarium, dolphin watching, turtle watching and fast as never. And very cute smooth Dolphin request was nervous at first, but, I wanted to stay longer, together. Sorry, was stuck on the dorsal fin and pectoral fins, to ride the water program in could not ride but just 5 metres. And I wanted to ride a little bit more. I bought because the pictures are very nice, but a Memorial. One was the $ 18 + tax. Early booking offer, hiring stuffed dolphin. Touch not only children, even after the program, had to hand feed the fish. Happy kids, happy.

    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.
