Learn about Pacific Marine Life at Waikiki Aquarium

See giant clams, monk seals, coral reefs, and more at this family-friendly Waikiki attraction!

There is so much to see and do during a stay at our Honolulu Hotel that you won’t be able to pack it all into one visit. With world-famous beaches and stunningly beautiful hikes, it’s easy to see why some visitors never get around to visiting any indoor Waikiki attractions. If you do choose to add any such attractions to your itinerary, consider the Waikiki Aquarium.

  • Hunters on the Reef
  • Hawaiian Marine Communities
  • Northwestern Hawaiian Islands
  • Hawaiian Monk Seal Habitat

Special activities and events, such as Afternoons at the Aquarium, Aquarium After Dark, and the Behind the Scenes Tours offer ways to enhance your aquarium visit. Most visitors spend about 2 hours exploring the aquarium, not including special events and programs.
