There is no better place to go swimming with sharks and rays on Oahu than at Sea Life Park! Snorkel in a special lagoon and meet curious rays face-to-face as they glide through the water. Using a flotation vest, snorkel, and mask, observe whitetip reef sharks and interact with adorable Hawaiian rays. Explore what a ray feels like as well as feed the reef fish! These graceful marine animals are gentle and friendly. This program is great for families and is the ultimate snorkeling experience in Hawaii!
