Unveil the depths of the sea at the Waikiki Aquarium- a refuge to colorful fishes, marine reptiles and other sea creatures. The massive collection of Corals, that is a star attraction here- offers a surreal experience.

The aquarium is also home to colorful fishes including Angelfishes, Butterfly fishes, Goatfishes, Moorish Ideal and Parrotfish among many others. Seeing the Hawaiian Green Sea-Turtles is a unique experience in itself.

When here, do stop by to say hello to the Hawaiian Monk Seal- another of the popular attractions in the aquarium.

  • Managed to get a parking space there which was great as it’s free, only about 10 spaces there but loads of parking elsewhere right outside, just have to pay for it. Rather small but a lot of fun, especially if you need to stay out of the sun for an hour or so. Said they would feed the monk seal at 12 but that didn’t happen.

  • I was pleasantly surprised by this small but decent aquarium. The displays are filled with a good variety of interesting fish and plants (corals, anemones, etc.) that are well presented. Great for kids. They have an outdoor tidepool display and seal display (one seal). There is a small shaded seating area to relax and a souvenir shop. My understanding is the seal(s) are either rescued ones or they have an impairment. So I'm ok with that. Otherwise I don't approve of captured mammals on display and do not attend sea park establishments.

  • Not very big but packed with awesome, colorful fish and coral. Great cephalopod collection too. I really enjoyed it, easily covered in an hour but as other posters said the AC is nice to hang out in too.

  • It’s small and quiet, and a nice break from the rest of Waikiki. You can see everything in 30 minutes.

  • Felt the price wasnt worth what we were able to see. The building was very small and a bunch of exhibits were empty. You can make this about an hour visit if you truly try to do so.
