We were greeted with friendly, informative employees that immediately gave our son a seahorse stamp on his arm which he thought was very cool. They also provided us with audio tour wands to guide us through all the exhibits which are included with the price of admission.
On our visit, NOAA was sponsoring a name the newest Hawaiian Monk Seal contest. We named the seal “Monky” and they gave us our very own “Monky”, a cute little plush monk seal, just for participating…how fun, especially for the kiddos! They also gave my son a seal stamp on his hand and he made a Hawaiian Monk Seal hat which looked super cute as he explored the aquarium checking out all the exhibits. Most of the exhibits feature glass low enough for him to see everything from his own height, which he absolutely loved!

Zoo Reciprocity - If you have a zoo membership, check to see if you have reciprocity with the Waikiki Aquarium. If you do, remember to pack your zoo membership for discounted or free admission. Our Philadelphia Zoo membership has reciprocity with the Waikiki Aquarium and we received 50% off admission to the aquarium. Go HERE for the 2010 reciprocity list on the Waikiki Aquariums website. Reciprocity rates are subject to change without notice, so as always call to verify.
