"Dreams of a life time"
May, 2018
Everyone goes through life with a dream. Some larger than others, some simpler than others. My wife's dream of 60 years was to interact with a dolphin. Sea Life Park fulfilled this dream.
When we entered the bus for the ride to the park, the driver was friendly, knowledgeable and willing to go out of his way to assist you. You enter the well kept park and are greeted by smiling staff. The walks are easy for older people to transit which we appreciated. The staff was on a tight schedule and this showed in how things were handled but the Dolphin was the sweetest I have ever seen. She was so gentle with her interactions with humans. For my wife her moment with the dolphin was a spiritual moment. The feeling of love from this animal brought peace to her soul and this is a memory that will remain for life.
The assembly line might be reconsidered and for the price of the experience, the Picture should be complementary.

"She should learn what the attitude and etiquette is all about!"

I joined the dolphin encounter program with my boy aged 8. A female trainer was in charge of my group of 6 people. I don’t remember her name. During the kiss-the-dolphin session, which they say is the highlight of the prigram, my son slipped from the platform in the water where we’re supposed to stay put in order not to bother the photography, and he accidentally interfere with the photography of other group members, the trainer turned to my son and told him back off in an extremely aggressive and intimidating face and voice, which really scared my son. It was very rude and there ain’t absolute no respect. She said like she were the boss and we’re her minors. Moreover, at my turn of kissing the dolphin, because the dolphin didn’t move how she’s supposed to do, the trainer forced me to keep repeating the stupid and awkward poses and smiles toward the photographer even if I said it’s enough. It looked like they don’t care at all how customers may feel. All they care is the money they’re gonna make by selling photos taken during the program. It was a very uncomfortable and unpleasant experience for me and my son and really screwed up our trip in Hawaii.

It was interesting for the kids. Not a lot for the adults. The view from their is gorgeous. I would only go if you have a lengthy stay on the island and are looking for something to do.

We spent the day at the Sea Life Park. On the small side of a park but has so much interactive things to do. We went swimming with the dolphins, that was an extra charge. The have a large tank with so sting rays and sharks, there’s a large sea turtle area, a beautiful bird aviary which was fun for all ages. There a few shows like the dolphins, penguins, sea lions and turtles. The park was very clean and the staff were friendly and courteous. The view in any direction was absolutely breathtaking.

"Swimming with stingrays and sharks"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed January 02, 2019 NEW
Well, It was quite a disappointing experience for the price tag: 10 minutes briefing and 20 minutes in the pool for 400$ US. We were able to approach/touch the stingrays 4 times, which last about 10 minutes and the remaining 10 minutes was to feed the fish for 10 minutes. We had the chance to interact with stingrays at the Vancouver Aquarium for a fraction of the price. We also had the chance to interact with stingrays and sharks in French Polynesia for again, a fraction of the price. Our daughter said: “is that it?!?!”...Sums it all:((
