I like the Sea Life Park. It's much smaller than other aquariums/aquatic "theme parks", but there's still a lot to see, with great animals. The aviary, The birds are so beautiful and friendly. It's a great experience and I loved taking my family there..

This is a smaller, quaint water park that we've visited in the past. Easily accessible, located on the eastern part of Oahu. Also conveniently to Sandy Beach. They have quite allot to offer: dolphin show, sea lion education, swimming with the dolphins and/or sea lions, shark trek, bird sanctuary, aquariums, interactive area with a variety of fish, sea turtles, feed the dolphins, sharks and fish. Also, if you wish after the park closes, you have the option to buy and watch The Chief's Luau with dinner and show.

"Dolphin Encounter"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5

The park itself was quite boring. There isn't much to see. We did the Dolphin Encounter as a part of our premium attraction for the Go Oahu Pass. When you sign in for your encounter they give you wrist bands with a number 1 or 2 on it. The number represents which group you are placed in. There were many little kids but the staff did a good job separating children and adult parties. They take you to a private backstage area. In your groups you are taken to a side of the pool where you get to learn and ask questions about dolphins. During the encounter they just teach you how to get the dolphin to kiss and "dance" with you for a photo op. They allow you to throw a piece of fish in the dolphins mouth once or twice but that's really it. You don't really get much time to touch the dolphin to be honest. The trainer (who I forgot her name) seemed like she was in a rush and just wanted us to finish getting our photos. However, you can definitely tell the trainers do care about the well being of the dolphins. After the encounter it takes 45 minutes for them to print out the photos. The photos they take are SUPER expensive. It is $18 for one photo or $33 for 2. If you are buying photos for more than one person, they do not let you split the $33 for 2 photos between different people, the photos purchased must be the same person. They do not allow you to bring your own camera or go pros during the encounter. I feel like the whole park is a money grab as there isn't much to see or do. The food court in the park is pretty decent. We got their loco moco & kaula pig with rice. Price for the food was not overpriced as most attractions. It was about $10 for a meal with a very generous portion. Overall, I would NOT pay full price to go to Sea Life or recommend going unless you are doing an encounter of some sort.

"Dolphin Encounter"

We drove to the Sea Life Park to participate in the Dolphin Encounter where you get in the water with a dolphin and a small group of people and the trainer educates you about the dolphin and you are able to touch and have photographs with the dolphin. It was a beautiful experience and they truly are beautiful creatures. The Sea Life Park itself is sadly a disappointment and quite run down. The enclosures for the turtles is very sad looking and feel for these big creatures being in such a boring and small pool. I would not recommend this park unless you were specifically wanting to interact with a dolphin. The staff were friendly and positive and the dining area was large and offered a good range of food.
