Dolphin Encounter by Sea Life Park

Bonus Choice on any 3, 5, or 7 Day Go Oahu Card.

Here's the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get up close and personal with friendly dolphins. From a waist deep platform, you'll observe and interact with these amazing animals while they perform tricks and entertain you. These dolphins play, kiss, and even "dance" with the guests. A great attraction for small children who don't want to venture into deeper waters, you're sure to be dazzled as well!

  • The encounter is 45 minutes long.
  • Please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to encounter.

Comments about Smart Destinations NEW! Dolphin Encounter by Sea Life Park (Bonus Choice with 3, 5 and 7-Day Cards):

We used this option as our bonus but the park allowed us to upgrade our package to the dolphin swim and pay the difference in price. This is a great deal and the experience was so awesome! If you love marine life you must do this. It was one of the top things on our vacation. My 11 and 12 year olds loved is as much as my 59 year old mother did...fantasic experience and outstanding value with the Go Card"
