Sea Life Park, Waimanalo, Oahu

 

Hawaii is over-run with aquariums. We chose to visit Sea Life Park.
For the seal show, Sea Life Park staged a Miss America contest for seals, with Miss California Seal and Miss Hawaiian Seal competing.
We got to the park just in time for the sea turtle feeding.
Little kids got to give the turtles pieces of lettuce.
For a ridiculous amount of money, visitors to Sea Life Park can swim with the dolphins. We opted to simply watch the dolphin show!
   
The dolphin show was great fun and set right on the ocean.
One of the top performers was a "Whalphin" a hybrid of a dolphin and a fake killer whale.
That's probably the "Whalphin," it was huge!
Nina got better pictures than the ones on Sea Life Park's website!
After visiting Sea Life Park, we literally went across the street to lie on the beach. You can barely see the Makapu’u Lighthouse in the distance.
Hawaii has both white and black sand beaches, as well as, apparently red sand beaches, but we didn't see any of those!
The waves here were pretty rough and Chris got a bit beat up. Nina chose to lie on the beach!
Another lovely view of Makapu’u Point.
