    An Unexpected Island Treasure
    , Oct 2021
    We loved watching the Unicorn fish swim through different environments - it seemed to get along with other fish pretty well. We were very interested in the history of Kahoolawe and the current care that is given to restoring the land

    Beautiful place, a little spendy for the time we spent. But we are on vacation so it’s expected. Great gift shop. Loved the tunnel and the big variety of fish!

    The ocean life of Hawaii

    My grandson was able to see all kine fish that come from Hawaii. And try pineapple ice cream. Also learn some history of the islands and see live fish in a tunnel above him.

    Best aquarium experience ever!
    , Oct 2021
    The new 3D humpback experience was amazing. I could have sat there in awe for an hour. Also walking through the glass tube with all the sea life swimming around us was very cool! I’d go again tomorrow.

    I would highly recommend.

    The 3D whale experience brings the ocean to life. Only wish it had been longer. Would have enjoyed seeing some of the playful moments mentioned in the commentary.
