Waikiki Aquarium Tours

Waikiki Aquarium
Have you been wondering the name of the bright yellow fish or strange eel that you saw snorkeling? Wonder no longer—the small but lively Waikiki Aquarium has dozens of tanks that recreate area reefs, as well as unusual ocean habitats in the remote Northwest Hawaiian Islands, with informative signage. The aquarium boasts half a dozen species of butterflyfish (your yellow fish could have been one of these), the fun-to-say state fish of Hawaii— humuhumu-nukunuku-a-pua’a, sharks, puffers, turtles and even two resident specimens of the endangered Hawaiian monk seal. Watch jellies float in black-lit tanks, see a nautilus use jet propulsion to move through the water, or find strange seadragons camouflaged in seaweed. The aquarium also hosts after-hours programming, including the popular Reef After Dark, which takes participants to explore area tide pools with experts by moonlight.

On the perfect platform for sightseeing and adventure, you’ll hover over Waikiki’s sandy pathways, grassy areas, and sidewalks and learn about the scenic highlights from your expert guide. Less in-depth with history and culture and without audio headsets like our signature tours have, this faster tour focuses more on the excitement of riding, fun facts, and beautiful photo opportunities. The small group tour takes a fun path around the less crowded naturally scenic areas of Waikiki to Amelia Earhart lookout with views of East Oahu, neighbor islands, and sometimes whales in the winter months. Hover past the Honolulu Aquarium, neoclassical War memorial, Historic Kapiolani Bandstand, massive banyan trees, charming cottages, outriggers off Kaimana Beach, 100’ tall palm tree groves, nearly secluded beach parks, and enjoy wonderful oceanfront views of Waikiki.
