Welcome to the Aquarium of Hawaii

This year the Maui Ocean Center celebrates nearly two decades of fostering understanding, wonder, and respect for Hawaii’s marine life with the help of local residents and visitors from around the world. We invite you to visit our park and develop an understanding and appreciation for Hawaii’s unique marine environment and local culture as you encounter animals that live in Hawaii — many of which are found nowhere else in the world — and learn about the close relationship that exists between Hawaiians and the sea.
