The Waikīkī Aquarium is sea-lebrating its 120th anniversary with two days of festivities open to the public on Saturday, March 16, and Tuesday, March 19, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

On March 16, families can enjoy the return of SeaHunt where keiki can search the lawn for marine-themed prizes and visit educational booths featuring fun activities.

The celebration will continue on March 19 where visitors can enjoy experiences in collaboration with educational partners at NOAA, the University of Hawaiʻi SeaGrant Program, Friends of Hanauma Bay and more. These activities will include expert talks, cutting-edge exhibits and interactive workshops.

“We are grateful for the partners, visitors, the local community, and Friends of the Waikīkī Aquarium (FOWA) members who have continued to support the aquarium over the decades,” said Waikīkī Aquarium Director Andrew Rossiter. “This support is what has allowed us to remain committed to ocean education, research and conservation throughout our history. While the last 120 years have been filled with memorable milestones, we are excited about our plans for the future.”

Aquarium admission is $12 for non-members; $8 for kamaʻaina and military with ID; $5 for senior citizens and juniors ages 4 to 12, and free for children 3 and under and FOWA members.
