Honolulu and Oahu Sights



Waikiki Aquarium

Waikiki Aquarium Review

This amazing little attraction harbors more than 3,500 organisms and 500 species of Hawaiian and South Pacific marine life, endangered Hawaiian monk seals, sharks, and the only chambered nautilus living in captivity. The Edge of the Reef exhibit showcases five different types of reef environments found along Hawaii's shorelines. Check out the new endangered green sea turtle exhibit, the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands display that explains the formation of the island chain, the Ocean Drifters jellyfish exhibit, the outdoor touch pool, and the self-guided audio tour, which is included with admission. The aquarium offers activities of interest to adults and children alike, including the Aquarium After Dark program when visitors grab a flashlight and view fish going about their rarely observable nocturnal activities.
