    Don't even want to give this aquarium a star... It was horrible... Theres very little parking if at all for the aquarium.. I drove around in circles just to find a place to park for a half hour across the way. I paid $32 for my daughter and I and it was the worst. I can go to a fish store and see the same thing for free WITH parking.. Very small... The fish exhibits were basically just oversized fish tanks. And only 1 sea lion.. Thats it... The whole tour takes about 10min.. We stayed longer just incase we missed something... We didn't... Save your...Read More

    Don't forget to grab the BEST OF OAHU coupon book near the entrance before paying the ticket. There is $1 off coupon inside... The aquarium is tooooo small. It's more like a show room for primary school students and kids. The monk seal feeding is funny for my kid. I hope they will have a better aquarium here in the center of Pacific Ocean.

    While pretty small it does jave some amazing fish that you cant see anywhere else! And the jellyfish exhibit was so cool also they have a mp3 style device that you walk with and can have it give you info based on the exhibit your are looking at very nice set up even though its small but well worth the entrance fee. You can tour the whole thing in about an hour or so.

    Worth the $12 in my opinion. Whoever said it took 10 minutes didn't let their poor kid look at the fish.

    This is one of the best aquariums I've been to, to date. With all sorts of sea creatures that you don't necessarily see at all aquariums, such as seahorses, sharks, frogfish, giant clams and a nautilus, it was nice to have a huge exotic variety of sea life to gaze at all afternoon. There is also an audio option for the visually impaired (or those that just want to hear the audio about different marine creatures and habitats. The only reason this place received 4 stars out of 5 for me is that the touch pool was seriously lacking, which was a big...Read More

Right behind it...
