    Maui Ocean Center is an educational, three-acre, state-of-the-art aquarium and marine park offering a look at the vast undersea world of the islands! Explore the shallow reef to the open ocean

    This is a great place to take the kids... if you are a local, make sure to ask for the kama'aina admission fee. If you really like it, get the annual pass because you will be back. It is very calming!

    Don’t miss the touch pool, shark & ray tunnel, or the octopus (we’ve also seen one in the outdoor pools hanging out on the rocks). You used to be able to sign up to scuba in the shark tank!

    Don’t miss the 3D movie in The Sphere — just opened Feb 2019. Awesome 3D footage of the humpbacks that visit Maui, up close and personal.

    Ask a Maui Ocean Center naturalist when they plan on doing a feeding next. Scuba divers feed sharks and rays in the big tank and answer your questions live! Read more

    Go for the IMAX whale experience. Lots of reef fish in the reef section which was my favorite. Nice place to kill a couple hours.

    Really nice place to take the kids, but if you can, go there later in the day or first thing in the morning when it's not as crowded.

    Great Auarium for the whole Family. My favorites are the turtles and the big fish tank with tiger sharks and manta rays.

    The keiki scavenger hunt is fun. And some of the things are tricky to find, so keep a sharp eye out.

    Totally worthwhile and on the way to the airport. I highly recommend visiting the aquarium before or after a snorkel adventure to turtle town!

    For your first trip, get an audio guide. Worth it for first timers and to get the most of your money.

    Won't take too long if you're just there to look at the sealife. Plenty of learning if you want to spend a longer time.

    Make sure you take one of the audio devices. Just $3 extra tells you so much more about the fish, sharks & turtles.
