Sea Life Park’s 50-year Splash

When Sea Life Park opened in 1964, visitors paid $2.64 to visit the attraction.

In celebration of its 50th anniversary, Sea Life Park will host a day of festivities from 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Nov. 8, featuring new exhibits, live entertainment and a throwback admission rate.

The day marks the introduction of a revamped Dolphin Cove, Hawaii Ocean Theatre and Kolohe Kai Sea Lion Shows, with performances throughout the day. Two new exhibits also will be unveiled: a 3D Sea Interactive Sea Life Experience and a Storm Water Education display, both at 10:30 a.m.

The event includes demonstrations and discussions by its community partners from noon to 4:30 p.m., including Sea Life Park Educational Program, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association, Department of Transportation Storm Water Management Project and Malama Maunalua.

Keiki activities run from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., including a bounce house and climbing wall.

The day wraps up with a 7 p.m. concert by Maunalua in the park’s Makapu’u Meadows.

Admission for the day is, of course, $2.64. For more information, call 259-2500.
