Sleep with the Sharks

An exciting after-hours Aquarium sleepover awaits you!

The Aquarium after dark is an exciting place to be – certain animals will come out of hiding while others seem to disappear from sight. Spend the night at the Aquarium and enjoy the unique opportunity to journey through Aquarium exhibits after dark. Witness changes in shark behavior from day to night, observe how certain creatures are more active when the lights go out, learn about marine animals, help an Ocean Naturalist feed turtles and rays, and delight in an evening filled with ocean-themed activities, hands-on marine life lessons, crafts, and a movie. When it’s lights out, participants will dive into their sleeping bags and drift away to an undersea slumber while gazing at the enchanting Open Ocean exhibit or the mesmerizing Sea Jelly exhibit.

School Field Trips

Journey through Maui Ocean Center, but take more than just photographs home with you. Our goal at the Aquarium is to create a lifelong bond between people and the ocean, through education of the ocean environment that surrounds us.

Field trips are a great way to learn. Maui Ocean Center offers self-guided field trips throughout the year for grades pre-K through college. To be eligible for field trip rates, visits by the school group must be in conjunction with a regularly scheduled class as required by school curriculum, in which the students receive a grade or academic credit.
