Sea Life Park - Dolphin Encounter
Families and friends of all ages will enjoy Sea Life Park's exciting and fun-filled Dolphin Encounter in Waikiki. Designed especially for children and small groups, Sea Life Park's Waikiki Dolphin Encounter is an interactive Oahu dolphin program that takes place in shallow waters. Full admission to Sea Life Park and round trip transportation is included in this Waikiki Dolphin Encounter. Guests will learn about dolphins and get to experience how fun, friendly and intelligent these sea mammals are, up close and personal in the beautiful setting of Oahu's Sea Life Park.
The Waikiki shallow-water Dolphin Encounter allows guests to touch the dolphins and receive adorable dolphin handshakes and kisses! Guests start out on a shallow water platform where they can watch dolphins swim, dance and perform special tricks. Participants can then move into slightly deeper water to get even closer to these friendly dolphins, and can actually swim with the dolphins in shallow water!
Sea Life Park is Hawaii's premier aquatic park. Located at Oahu's Pakapuu Beach, Sea Life Park is a world-class aquatic experience featuring dolphin swims, sea lions, Hawaiian ray encounters, penguins and much more!
