Hawaiian Reef and Ray Encounter at Sea Life Park Hawaii

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Make your way to Sea Life Park Hawaii, located on Oahu’s scenic Makapu’u Point, just 15 miles (24 km) from Waikiki. Your admission ticket provides entry to interactive exhibits, educational talks and animal habitats throughout the day. Get your hands wet at the touch pools, watch a dolphin show, and witness the playful antics of penguins and sea lions. You can also visit the Hawaiian Reef Aquarium for a close look at sharks and sting rays (see descriptions of attractions in the Itinerary below).

    Select from our (4) daily encounter times and experience all that Hawaiian Reefs have to offer. Put on a provided life vest, snorkel and mask, and slip into the pool with an expert guide who helps you observe and interact with the gentle manta rays. Meet these curious aquatic creatures face-to-face as they glide gracefully through the water in a sectioned-off lagoon. Enjoy the opportunity to swim and touch these nimble filter feeders, considered to be some of the largest fish in the ocean with ‘wingspans’ up to 30 feet (9 meters). You'll also get the chance to feed and experience the various Hawaiian Reef fish.

    When you’re hungry, purchase a casual meal, quick bite or sweet treat at on-site eateries including the ever-popular Pink's Hot Dogs.

    You are able to get quite close to the animals and get a good education from the handlers. I found the whole visit very informative and loved that they provide a sanctuary for a number of rescued and injured animals. The park itself needs a lot of upkeep and renovation and your
