Waikiki Aquarium - Review

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.

Waikiki Aquarium, Honolulu Reviews

  • 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.

  • Small aquarium by the beach. Part of the exhibit area was closed off for construction. Staff are friendly. There is a variety of marine life displayed here for patrons to enjoy. A nice visit but I just wish there was more there for the money.

  • Cute aquarium, small considering its surrounded by water. Staff is super friendly, parking is tough, you may find a spot at the aquarium, otherwise its a long walk. Their monk seal was not there.

  • Perfect family's with small children. All exhibits are at a height that the kids can see without your help. You can see the whike thing in about an hour which is convenient for my 2 year old. Very reasonable priced for military. Non military is like 12 bucks so that's kinda pricey but not bad for Waikiki. All in all was a fun experience. Would go again

  • My wife and kids loved this place. A must go. We all have different favorites from our visit.
