Sea Life Park’s Dolphin Encounter is one of the top dolphin encounter experiences on O’ahu . You will interact with our pod from a waist-deep platform and spend time with our expert animal trainers to learn what it takes to care for our dolphin family. Learn about their habitat, physiology, and conservation, and walk away with a once-in-a-lifetime experience! Participants will have hands-on fun and an exciting experience interacting with the dolphins and learning from our animal care professionals. The entirety of this program is performed on a shallow water platform and does not include any deep water portion or free swimming with the animals.

One individual (non-group) photo per participant is included with your dolphin experience! A value of $35! There’s no better or more memorable way to top off your family vacation in Hawaii than with a dolphin encounter at Sea Life Park!
