Visit Dolphins, Sea Lions, Penguins and More Marine Life!
This is Hawaii’s prime marine attraction, located on Oahu’s southeastern tip by Makapuu Point,
just 15 miles from Waikiki. Come and visit this world-class marine attraction and enjoy up close views of
dolphins, sea lions, penguins, stingrays and many other creatures of the ocean. You’ll even be able to see
the world’s only "Wolphin," a mix between a dolphin and a whale!
The park offers a whole range of packages that are entertaining as well as educational. Tour the park and say hello to all
kinds of marine life, sit back and watch the thrilling animal shows, or if you want to get wet, swim with dolphins in the
park's large lagoon. For the adventurous there is an underwater trek that allows you to walk 18 feet down among many colorful
tropical fish! Even experience a luau, a traditional Hawaiian feast featuring an all-you-can-eat Hawaiian buffet
dinner and a stunning Polynesian revue. It's the only luau in Hawaii that also boasts a spectacular dolphin show.
This East Oahu attraction is a place to enjoy the company of dolphins, sea lions, rays, sharks, native fish and more. With a focus on educational and interactive programs, Sea Life Park Hawaii is small enough to enjoy on foot but diverse enough to be a full-day destination.
Sea Life Park Hawaii is where the heart meets the sea. No amusement park in Honolulu will allow you to experience a variety of unique animal encounters and other interactive opportunities like Sea Life Park Hawaii. From dolphins and sea lions, to sharks and Hawaiian rays, we provide you the opportunity to get up-close and personal with our animals in an intimate setting.

Children of all ages get excited about the NEW Discovery Reef Touch Pool, where they can carefully lay their hands on starfish, urchins, and even baby honu (Hawaiian green sea turtles) during hatchling season. Children can even crawl into a tunnel and watch shark pups swim by. All creatures featured in the new touch pool are native to Hawaiian waters and tide pools. Plus, Sea Life park’s expert staff will be there to share fun facts.
*Touch Pool species subject to change.
Habitats & Exhibits
Sea Life Park’s Shark Cave is an excellent place to learn about the wonderful species of sharks living in Hawaii, such as the Scalloped Hammerhead, shown here. Sharks are unique in the fish kingdom, with sleek, boneless bodies (they only have cartilage, no bones) and other amazing adaptations. Our Shark Cave, designed for shark viewing and underwater shark experiences, has great new features, from the life-size shark imagery and cave rockwork on the walls to special underwater mood lighting and – most excitingly – a removal of the submersible fencing that was in place for the safety of the animals and people in the tank.
Starting in July, those guests enjoying our Shark Trek experience will be thrilled to be in the water with several beautiful native sharks, fish and a 200-lb stingray with no boundary between themselves and the animals.
Shark Trek uses remarkable Sea Trek technology which enables virtually anyone, even children, to submerge for long periods of time using just a helmet. The Shark Trek experience – now fence-free!
Dolphins & Wholphins
At 5 years old, Nalu is the youngest calf in the Sea Life Park nai`a `ohana (dolphin family). Wholphins, too, have strong and long-lasting familial bonds, which makes sense given their genetic blend. A hybrid of a false killer whale and Atlantic bottlenose dolphin, Sea Life Park’s own Kekaimalu, meaning “from the peaceful sea,” and her calf Kawilikai, meaning “blend of the ocean,” are inseparable. Learn more about marine mammals on a trip to Sea Life Park.
You can watch penguins leap out of the water, sun themselves, or listen to one of our trainers talk about these amazing animals. You might even get to see them eat! Hear about their avian characteristics as we introduce this cherished threatened species to the guests of Sea Life Park Hawaii.
California Sea Lion
Our California sea lions divide their time between basking, snoozing, diving, floating and, of course, eating. You can feed them, too! (Fees apply.)
Cockatiels and lovebirds make up the bustling, chirping community of Sea Life Park’s open-air aviary. All guests are welcome to step inside and enjoy their company during posted hours. Feeding sticks are available at no charge. (subject to change).
Many birds have arrived at our park injured or sick, and in need of rehabilitation. We have carefully and lovingly nursed these beauties back to health and those that cannot go back into the wild are now permanent residents of Sea Life Park. Take a look at some of our local Hawaiian seabirds, including the Iwa (Great Frigate Bird).
