For over 20 years, Maui Ocean Center has fostered understanding, wonder, and respect for Hawaii's marine life with visitors from around the world. Today, it is recognized as one of Maui’s top-rated attractions and listed among the “Top 10 Aquariums in the World” by TripAdvisor. Descend from the Living Reef to the vast Open Ocean exhibit on a journey where encounters with schooling reef fish, sharks, stingrays, turtles, and Hawaiian marine life await. Home to the world’s largest display of Hawaiian corals, the Aquarium features over 60 exhibits teeming with local marine animals and daily marine naturalist presentations. The new Humpbacks of Hawaii Exhibit & Sphere features the world’s first virtual, 3D encounter with Hawaii’s humpback whales, bringing viewers eye-to-eye with life-sized humpbacks. Hawaiian culture and values are interwoven throughout the park’s journey. From learning the language to experiencing cultural exhibits and activities, guests will learn about the storied connection between Hawaii’s land, sea, and people. The Aquarium also offers Behind-the-Scenes Tours, oceanview dining at the award-winning Seascape Restaurant, and shopping for Hawaii-made products at the Maui Ocean Treasures gift shop. Named “Best Children’s Activity on Maui” by Maui Time Weekly, Maui Ocean Center is not only a family-centric attraction but offers something for people of all ages and interests. The relationship between the Hawaiians and the sea and messages of environmental conservation are cornerstones of the Maui Ocean Center story. The collective experience of native wildlife, local culture, and our social responsibility to be stewards of the sea is what defines Maui Ocean Center as “The Aquarium of Hawaii.”
