The Waikiki Aquarium may not be the largest aquarium in the world but it does have a lot of good exhibits. Some of the exhibits they have include a endangered species of multicolored clams, dragon seahorse, and nautilus. They even have a interactive exhibit that allows you to touch various sea creatures like urchins and starfish.

I checked out the Waikiki aquarium on a recent trip to Hawaii. And while the staff is extremely friendly, it's easy to get to in Honolulu and the information is good, it's a lot smaller than I imagined. My recommendation is that it's much better suited to kids than to honeymooning adults. But definitely worth checking out if you're bringing children.

You would expect that an aquarium in Hawaii would be large but it's not. Get a coupon from one of the many books found on the street. You will be paying too much if you pay regular admission. The aquarium does have nice specimens but it is too small, you can go in and out within 1 hour. There is not much to see though their tanks are lighted by natural sunlight and they have a big clam on display. They also have the leafy seahorse which is beautiful to look at. Go early in the day to avoid crowds.

This place is really beautiful. It is a great place for all ages but especially for the kids. They can learn a lot. Each exhibit comes with a description. The sights are astounding. Its not like a tank in the wall for all the fishes. The walls are unique. When you see the place youll be amazed. There are many different fishes and some animals come form different countries not just Hawaii. They have see urchins, jelly fishes, corals, sea horses Admission is cheap as well.

This is a great business because they have wonderful exhibits of live marine animals such as fish, coral, jellyfish, seahorses, and other rare sea creatures. Even though this aquarium is very small, they have enough exhibits to entertain any marine animal lover. The seals in the ouside aquarium are fun to watch if they are not sleeping.

The Waikiki Aquarium is very small. There are a few neat fish to look at, but it is definitely not worth paying for. If you are interested in seeing some neat fish, head over to Haunauma Bay and go snorkeling. You'll see just as many fish, and it is definitely more fun to swim with them than to look at them in a tank. If you have young kids, and you have nothing else to do, this might kill an hour or two.

PROS: good for small children
CONS: better fish in the ocean!

The Waikiki Aquarium is nice, but it's very small, and we cruised through it in an hour. It's no Monterey Bay Aquarium, that is for sure!!! There is still a lot of neat things to see, and a lot of the fish and critters you see are indigenous to Hawaii's waters. Some of the tanks weren't labeled as to who their inhabitants were, so that was also disappointing. Also, some were freshwater fish that you can buy at any tropical fish store (not Hawaiian natives.) A nice aquarium, but I would recommend saving your bucks for something a bit more spectacular, as it wasn't cheap.

If you only have a few days to spend on Oahu, then I wouldn't really recommend this tiny aqarium. There's a small, but beautiful jelly-fish tank and one large tank with sharks and some pretty big fish. What's there is wonderful, but you'll really only spend about 30-45 minutes here. This would be fine if it weren't for the $8 admission fee.
