Located in the strip of Waikiki at the end of Kalakaua right on the ocean. This quaint little aquarium houses the species known to the Hawaiian islands we may have the opportunity to see but a lot more on land. Beautiful sea life that captive many who witness them. It also rents out the lawn for weddings, corporate events and proms as I had the honor to chaperone. Beautiful setting for a beautiful place to see many of the islands sea life spectaculars. Great for families!!!
It is a small aquarium but very welcoming! There are many interesting species to observe and learn from. The people are very nice. This place actually works as fund collector for research at the University of Hawaii and conservation programs! Loved the jellyfishes!!
Wonderful day to go was the 112th birthday celebration. Admitted for $4 with plenty to see and do.
This is a nice little aquarium and especially good for kids. We were lucky enough to find street parking within walking distance. Our 4-year-old got in free and the adults each got $1 off the $9 general admission with our AAA discount.We were given devices to listen to for an audio tour, but we didn't use them and proceeded at our 4-year-old's pace and left whenvever he declared he was done. Tip: Bring sunscreen and a hat because some displays are outside in direct sun. Among many other things, we saw:* Variety of tropical fish * Monk seals (check times for shows) * Interactive exhibit (can hold and touch hermit crab)* Sharks* Jellyfish * Grouper* Octopus There's a gift shop and a place for kids to make souvenir pennies. There are beaches within walking distance of the aquarium.
See hammer head sharks, tropical fish, sharks, and turtles.
Just a short walk along the beach east from coastal Waikiki, this similarly named aquarium provides inquisitive visitors with an unequaled look at Hawaii's abundant sea life. Fish from all along the islands are stored in beautifully decorated living tanks, that are home to coral more vibrantly colored than most anything you'll find offshore at Waikiki. Keep your eyes peeled for Hawaii's state fish, the exhaustively long named humuhumunukunukuapua'a (Anyone like to try that one five times fast). For an informative and visually pleasing look at Hawaii's underwater residents, bring the whole family to the Waikiki Aquarium.
