Located just a few short blocks from Waikiki Beach, this is a great place to learn about Hawaii's amazing ocean world. You can see 400 different species at this small but mighty museum, including monk seals, sharks and sea turtles. A knowledgeable staff is on hand to narrate tours and answer questions. The aquarium has a good gift shop where you can ask about special events and excursions. It offers some terrific educational and community outreach programs.
We needed something to get out of the HISTORICAL RAIN OF MARCH 2006, so we opted to go to the Aquarium. Price was right and although not the Shedd Aquarium, like in Chicago, it is cute, small, and just right.
The Waikiki Aquarium is a small, but well laid out facility right on the beach, and between the hotels and Diamond Head. It has many of the beautiful tropical creatures of the islands, including the fascinating Nautilus and bioluminescent fish. We are from the Seattle area, and the aquarium here is much more extensive, but we still found the Waikiki Aquarium to be a worthy adventure.
If you have been to a large aquarium like Monterey Bay Aquarium in Monterey, CA you will not be impressed. They did have a seahorse though that looked like it was part seaweed, and that was really terrific. They had little sea urchins you could touch, etc. We were there about an hour and a half. Parking is extremely limited.
Compared to other aquariums, it is a tad small.....like a previous poster said, you can probably see the whole thing in under 30 minutes, more if you take your time...if you have kids though, i believe they still have a 'hands-on' tank where you can play with starfish, sea cucumbers, etc........all in all, I think it's a good place to take a short break from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki.
The Waikiki Aquarium is an excellent deal for your money and a great place for people of all ages. The aquarium is not large, but the exhibits are excellently done, beautiful, and interesting. There is enough variety to satisfy any visitor. And you don't feel like you got taken advantage of with the outrageous prices found at some other, lesser, aquariums. An all around good experience and one of the best on the island of Oahu.
