Good news for Hawaii-bound families: The Pacific Beach Hotel’s Oceanarium has added an early performance of its Mermaid Dive Show at 5 p.m. every night so that early diners, families with young children and those with plans for later in the evening can have dinner and take in the show before sundown.
Shows are now presented at 5 and 9 p.m. every evening. The three-story Oceanarium has more than 70 species of Pacific fish, eels and stingrays. (For the record: The Oceanarium buffet has more than 50 selections including all-you-can-eat snow crab legs, traditional and Asian entrees, salads, sushi and pastas.)
The Oceanarium and restaurant are in the Pacific Beach Hotel at 2490 Kalakaua Avenue across from Waikiki. For reservations call (808) 921-6111, (808) 922-1233 or make an online reservation at pacificbeachhotel.com/dining.
