At Maui Ocean Center, our mission is to foster understanding, wonder, and respect for Hawaii’s marine life. We invite kāmaʻāina and visitors worldwide to develop an understanding and appreciation for Hawaii’s unique ocean environment. Explore local culture as you encounter the animals that live in Hawaii — many found nowhere else in the world — and learn about the close relationship that exists between Hawaiians and the sea. Take your time, explore, and have an unforgettable Hawaii experience!
