Hawaii Mom Blog: Sea Life Park




August 15, 2010

Sea Life Park

We recently took advantage of a Foodland Maka`i Card promotion at Sea Life Park-$10 adult admission, $5 junior admission ages 3-11.

Regular prices are $29.99/adult and $19.99/ages 3-11, so we couldn't pass up such a great deal.

The first attraction was the Hawaiian Reef Aquarium.

We saw lots of fish, a couple of sharks, and some stingrays.

We then visited the Sea Turtles.

We then watched the Kolohe Kai Sea Lion Show.
The show was a "pageant" featuring two sea lions who participated in talent and Q&A, and the audience got to pick the winner.

We also visited the Penguin Habitat.
Because we arrived at Sea Life Park late in the afternoon, we missed the Dolphin Cove Show (12:30pm daily), but we still got to see the dolphins!

Here is a sea lion lounging in the sun.

We ended our visit with the Hawaiian Ocean Theater Show.

A penguin came near the audience (the trainers reminded everyone not to rush down or come too close to the penguin).

A sea lion came by as well.

The show then ended with dolphins jumping and doing tricks.

The kids enjoyed Sea Life Park they loved seeing all the fishes and other sea creatures, but I thought a lot of the exhibits didn't seem to be maintained too well or they were shut down. I do like how they added canvases to shade the Dolphin Cove (it didn't exist the last time we visited; there is also some shade in the Sea Lion show), because it can get very hot.

Despite being a very long drive from where I live, it was a very nice and scenic drive, and the next time we visit Sea Life Park, I hope the exhibits that were shut down will be open, and hopefully there will also be another really great admission deal.

  1. It's funny how we judge places here by distance if we go or not. Can you imagine being on the mainland? LOL SLP is way fun but so expensive. You do have to look for deals. Great review. Have a wonderful Sunday.

  2. I haven't visited Sea Life Park for the past 15 years, but truly enjoyed the experience the last time we were there. Too bad some exhibits were closed this time.
