Life on the reef can be tricky. Come learn about some of the animals you can find on the Hawaiian reef including stingrays, whitetip reef sharks, and tropical reef fish!

Discovery Reef
Touch Pool

Children of all ages get excited about the Discovery Reef Touch Pool, where they can carefully lay their hands on sea stars, urchins, and even baby honu (Hawaiian green sea turtles). Crawl into the tunnel and watch the fish swim by. All creatures featured are native to Hawaiian waters and tide pools.

*Touch Pool species subject to change.

Penguin Habitat

Penguins in Hawaii? Get up close to Humboldt Penguins at this exhibit where you can watch these flightless birds “fly” through the water. These animals are typically found in Chile and Peru so the Hawaiian weather is actually quite comfortable for them, and if they ever need to cool off they can always take a dip.

Honu Green Sea Turtle

A focus on conservation. Come see the only active breeding colony of green sea turtles in the United States. As part of a resurgence to wild populations, the park releases between 200 and 800 green sea turtle hatch-lings each year. See them up-close and learn why they're such an important part of our ecosystem.

Dolphins & Wholphins

Wholphins, like dolphins, have strong and long-lasting familial bonds, which makes sense given their genetic blend. A hybrid of a false killer whale and Atlantic bottlenose dolphin, Sea Life Park’s own Kekaimalu, meaning “from the peaceful sea,” and her calf Kawilikai, meaning “blend of the ocean,” are inseparable.

California Sea Lion

Sea lions, along with seals, and walruses belong to the family called Pinnipeds! Our California sea lions divide their time between basking, snoozing, diving, floating and, of course, eating. You can feed them, too! (Fees apply.)

Aviary

Cockatiels and lovebirds make up the bustling, chirping community of Sea Life Park’s open-air aviary. All guests are welcome to step inside and enjoy their company during posted hours. Feeding sticks are available at no charge.

Seabird Sanctuary

Many birds have arrived at our park injured or sick, and in need of rehabilitation. We have carefully and lovingly nursed these beauties back to health and those that cannot go back into the wild are now permanent residents of Sea Life Park. Take a look at some of our local Hawaiian seabirds, including the Iwa (Great Frigate Bird).
