SEA LIFE® Park Hawaii Tours
Read MoreShow Less
Just across from the blue sea, the mostly open-air SEA LIFE® Park highlights some of Hawaii's aquatic residents—sharks, rays, turtles, penguins, seals (even the rare Hawaiian monk seal), and dolphins included.
In addition to regular educational programs and talks with trainers to teach visitors about its animals, admission tickets also include access to a number of animal habitats, such as the Hawaiian Reef Aquarium and the seabird sanctuary, where injured or sick birds are rehabilitated. Guests are also free to visit an open-top tide pool housing urchins, starfish and, occasionally, baby turtles (touching is optional).
After hours, the park hosts the Chief's Luau, a popular traditional Hawaiian feast and dancing show with hula, a 10-minute fire dance, and chances to weave a headband from banana leaves. Performers remove a pig from the traditional underground imu (oven) for the dinner. This experience is offered nightly (except on Tuesday and Saturday) with a cost separate from park admission: $158 for adults, $139 for youth ages 13 to 20, and $125 for children ages 5 to 12.
Although Viator tours do not include sea lion and dolphin encounters and swims, these experiences are available for purchase at SEA LIFE Park Hawaii for an additional fee (from $69.99).
SEA LIFE Park Hawaii is located off Highway 72 on the island's southeastern coast. When coming from Honolulu, it's on the left side of the road past Hanauma Bay, the Blow Hole, and Sandy Beach. The site is open daily from 9:30am to 4:30pm from June through August, and until 4pm the rest of the year. Standard daily entry costs $39.99 for adults and $24.99 for children 12 and under. On-site dining options include Pink's Hot Dogs and the Beachboy Lanai Food Court. A trip to the park is frequently coupled with a stop for snorkeling at nearby Hanauma Bay.
