Sea Life Park Hawaii will open to the public five days a week beginning on Memorial Day.
Waimanalo Park reopened on March 6 after being closed for nearly a year due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. In early March, doors were only open on Saturdays and Sundays, with Fridays being added later in the month.
Starting Monday, admission will now be available from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Friday through Tuesday to visit the park’s honu, or green sea turtles, native shark species, rescued seabirds, penguins and two recently rescued California sea lions, Niblet and Brawler.
“We deeply appreciate the enthusiasm and support of our guests as we work to deliver the best in marine education, conservation awareness and family fun in the safest environment possible,” said Valerie King, Executive Director of Sea Life Park, in a press release. “With this exciting trajectory since our reopening, we will continue to look to lengthen our days, as well as return to our extended summer hours in the near future.”
In addition, Sea Life Park is also hiring to meet additional staffing needs as the park expands its admission hours. A variety of positions – from aquarium specialists to ticket agents – to sealifeparkhawaii.com/emploi.
Sea Life Park always encourages customers to purchase tickets before their online visit, as capacity is always limited. Annual Pass holders do not need a reservation to visit.
The park has set up strengthened health and safety policies to help protect all guests and team members, and appreciates everyone’s cooperation with these important steps.
Policies have been adjusted based on Governor David Ige’s latest amendment on requirements for outdoor lifting masks.
>> Any guest or employee who chooses to wear a face covering outside can do so.
>> Guests should socially distance themselves from others outside of their group.
>> Guests and employees should always wear face coverings in all indoor areas, such as retail stores, conservation center, adventure center check-in, and washrooms.
Sea Life Park is managed by Palace Entertainment and is owned by Parques Reunidos based in Madrid, Spain.
