Our Hawaii Hotel is located near many top Oahu Attractions. One, the Waikiki Aquarium, is on many visitors’ lists of can’t-miss Waikiki Things to Do.
About the Waikiki Aquarium:
The Waikiki Aquarium opened its doors in 1904, and it is one of the oldest aquariums in the country. Each year this Oahu Attraction welcomes 330,000 visitors who come to see the thousands of creatures kept here. Courtyard by Marriott Waikiki Beach is conveniently located near the Waikiki Aquarium and other popular Attractions.
More than 490 species are represented at this Oahu Attraction. Tropical fish, sea turtles and seals are just a few examples of the 3,500 creatures on display. While just seeing the creatures is enough for some visitors; others want a closer look at the workings of the Aquarium and its inhabitants.
Special Activities such as Meet the Monk Seals, Aquarium After Dark, and a Behind-the-Scenes Tour are fun extras that you can add to your visit. Another option is Afternoon at the Aquarium. Offered each Wednesday, Afternoon at the Aquarium includes interactive learning opportunities and the chance to complete a craft related to marine science.
The mission of the Aquarium is not just to welcome visitors. A strong conservation program is the heart of their purpose. Educating the public about and conserving Pacific marine life is the real reason this Oahu Attraction exists. It’s not just about today’s visitors being able to marvel at the beauty of these creatures; they want to make sure tomorrow’s visitors will also be able to do so.
Enjoy a visit to the Waikiki Aquarium during your next stay at Courtyard by Marriott Waikiki Beach – A Hawaii Hotel. This Oahu Attraction is something that the whole family will enjoy, and it is a chance to learn about the abundant marine life found off Hawaii’s coast.
