    We had our reception here and absolutely loved it! Jacy was so helpful and sweet with getting everything arranged and helped us so much with planning. Everything was set-up just as we discussed and went off without a hitch. The prices are unbeatable for such a nice location in town and you are able to work with any outside vendors so you can make this fit within most budgets. Only downside was the early clean-up time, but that really didn't bother our group because we had a 6 hour time difference making everyone really tired by 10pm anyways. I would highly recommend to anyone!

    We held our wedding reception (not our ceremony) at the Waikiki Aquarium on August 9, 2014. This was the day after a major hurricane was supposed to hit Honolulu. We had had a week of not knowing whether the reception could be held, especially since it was outside and with a tent! Jacey, our contact person with the Aquarium, was very helpful with this uncertainly as well as throughout the whole process. She assured me that, if there was any way they could hold the event, they would. Fortunately, the brunt of the hurricane missed us and they were able to proceed, tent and all.

    The venue itself is almost magical. Our guests could enjoy the indoor exhibits and have a visit to the aquarium while we were finishing our photos at Unity Church, just up the street. They exited to a beautiful green lawn with tall palm trees next to the beach and right at the base of Diamond Head. Jacey had arranged for a lovely tent with pretty lighting.

    There is a stage for musicians (they hold outdoor concerts there in the summer) and there is space to the side near a gate where the caterers can set up the food equipment needed, since there are no kitchen facilities at the Aquarium.

    (I would say that, given the time challenges of needing to set up in the short time after the Aquarium closes before the reception started and there being no facilities there, it is very important to choose a caterer that has been there many times and knows the drill. We used the Catering Connection and could not have been happier.)

    I think that the Aquarium is a bargain. The fee is reasonable and less than some other venues that are not as nice, and it feels good to know that the money went to help the Aquarium -- a win/win!

    We had many compliments from our guests who loved the venue. We were thrilled with it. We even got to see the full moon break through the clouds and rise over Diamond Head! A perfect, lovely evening -- simply elegant and lovely.

    Jaycee, the events coordinator is so pleasant to work with. they were welcoming and accommodating. The venue itself is a fantastic place to have a sunset party. Your guests are allowed to view all the exhibits during your event - great for kids and adults!
