View some of Hawaii’s most unique marine life, stand face to face with a humpback whale, and stare down a shark more than twice your size… all without submerging in the water. The Maui Ocean Center in Hawaii offers a wealth of experiences up close and personal with the island’s most fascinating creatures.
A trip to the Maui Ocean Center is sure to leave you with a greater appreciation for the sea life who call the waters surrounding this island home, as well as for the Hawaiian culture and its connection to the sea. Hands on exhibits such as the Tide Pool are sure to be a hit for children, where they can observe and touch creatures found in the island’s tide pools, such as star fish. The Open Ocean exhibit is another favorite, where you can wander through a glass tunnel and experience the sensation of being surrounded by stingrays, sharks, and hundreds of fish as they swim alongside and above you. Don’t miss the feeling of coming face to face with the giant humpback whales that migrate to Maui each winter in the 3D film Humpbacks of Hawaii, where you will feel like you are submerged in the Pacific alongside these gentle giants.
