Our Facility

The Waikiki Aquarium offers an exceptional location for those seeking to hold a unique and memorable event. Whether you’re celebrating a wedding, birthday, graduation or holding a corporate event, the Aquarium is the perfect setting for any occasion. Our location and facilities provide one of the best open-air settings on Oahu with space to tailor your set-up for your event’s needs.

Event rental fee includes access to the Aquarium Galleries which showcase stunning marine communities of the tropical Pacific and Hawaii, “Edge of the Reef,” a 7,500 gallon outdoor exhibit that recreates a living Hawaiian shoreline, and the Hawaiian Monk seal habitat where you may view and learn about one of the world’s most endangered marine mammals. The manicured Aquarium lawn will welcome your guests with calm sea breezes and magnificent views of Diamond Head and the Pacific Ocean as well as one of the best views of our Hawaiian sunsets (weather permitting).
