Founded in 1904, the Waikiki Aquarium is the third oldest public aquarium in the United States.

A part of the University of Hawaii at Manoa since 1919, it is located next to a living reef on the Waikiki shoreline.

Exhibits, programs, and research focus on the aquatic life of Hawaii and the tropical Pacific, with roughly 320,000 people visiting the Aquarium each year. Over 3,000 organisms are on exhibit representing more than 500 species of aquatic animals and plants.

I hope you enjoy our Profile of the Waikiki Aquarium and our gallery of 20 photos of our visit to the Waikiki Aquarium.

The Waikiki Aquarium also has Sea Dragons if I recall. It was wonderful to see the sea horses, but the sea dragons were simply amazing. Kudos to the Waikiki Aquarium for all of the good that they do.
