I had such a good time playing with the birds and the dolphin show was great! I really enjoyed my dolphin meeting experience too! There’s a little something for everyone here.

We upgraded to the swim. It was incredible. Your staff is awesome.

Not to be missed. The stall from the sweet lady in the ticket booth to Kate the trainer to Taigani in the restaurant were great. Definitely a must do attraction.

Definitely the staff and Dolphins are the best part!

Q. What exhibits are available with a Sea Life Park general admission ticket?
A. A general admission ticket (included in all packages) provides access to the following displays and exhibits.

Discovery Reef Touch Pool: Reach down from above into carefully constructed pools to touch, hold and interact with local Hawaiian sea life! The touch pool's rotating roster of safe critters includes sea stars, urchins and occasionally even sea turtles! Kids can also crawl through a specially constructed tunnel to get an underwater view of swimming tropical fish. Experiences like this make Sea Life Park in Hawaii one of the top Oahu points of interest for families.

Shark Cave: Sea Life Park's Shark Cave is a deep centralized aquarium with dozens of native sharks that visitors pass through when first entering the park grounds. Keep an eye out as you walk through, as this facility also houses a 200lb manta ray! You might even see other guests in the middle of their Shark Trek, a real underwater walk with the sharks using a special underwater breathing helmet.

Hawaiian Monk Seal Exhibit: Stop by the monk seal enclosure to see these rare additions to Hawaii's Sea Life Park basking in the sun, swimming or playing with toys. Exhibits like this one help make Sea Life Park one of the best attractions in Honolulu.

Dolphin & Wolphin Exhibit: In addition to Sea Life Park's resident dolphins, the park is also home to a rare mix breed known as a wholphin, the cross between a false killer whale and a bottlenose dolphin. The enclosure is designed to give guests a great view of these creatures day-to-day movements.

California Sea Lion Exhibit: Between shows (which you're also highly encouraged to check out), guests can find the sea lions napping and playing around in their pen. Often vocal and lots of fun to watch, the enclosure is always popular with visitors to Sea Life Park.

Aviary Exhibit: Step inside Sea Life Park's aviary and you'll be greeted by hundreds of flapping wings. This exhibit is open-air, meaning you can walk about freely and interact with love birds, cockatiels and other tropical birds. Millet sticks are available for you to offer, and the birds will fly right up and land on your hand for a snack. You may even have a visitor sit down on your head.

Sea Bird Sanctuary: This artificial grove has been built as part of Seal Life Park's rehabilitation efforts. It houses sick or injured sea birds, like the Hawaiian Iwa (Great Frigate Bird), and gives them a sanctuary as they make their way to a full recovery.

Please Note: Exhibits are subject to occasional closures or maintenance and animal visibility cannot be guaranteed. Check with staff upon arrival for the status of exhibits and suggestions.
