When you are staying in the Waikiki area, a great place to go especially with the children is the Waikiki Aquarium. The facility, located at 2777 Kalakaua Avenue oceanside in Kapi’olani Park, is an easy walk from the Waikiki beach area. At the Aquarium, you can see wonderful displays of corals of all types, learn about the relationships of the sea animals found in Hawaii’s beautiful coral reefs, view unusual sea creatures such as the octopus, squid and jelly fish to name just a few. A special attraction of the Aquarium is the 5,500 gallon Great Barrier Reef exhibit containing over 100 types of fish, clams and corals. Some of the clams in this exhibit weigh over 170 pounds. Adult admission is $9 with youth 13-17 for $4 and children 5-12 at $2. Children 4 and under are free when accompanied by an adult.
