Hawai'i is bursting with untold beauty. We invite you to go deeper when you visit the island of Maui and rediscover the ocean. Develop a real connection with the Hawaiian ocean in our multi-sensory aquarium.
Touch, explore, and understand more with our highly-skilled aquarists. We want to make sure that by the end of each visit with us, you feel connected to the Hawaiian ocean. Let our guides take you on a multi-sensory journey through an underwater tropical paradise.
The Hawaiian people have an innate understanding of the underwater cities better known as coral reefs. From storytelling to traditional practices, authentic local customs allow coral reefs to provide home, shelter, and much more to thousands of sea creatures. We would love for you to learn more about this relationship on your next visit and by reading the Hawaiian stories available on our website and social media.
Pending government and health updates, MOC plans to reopen July 2020.
Mahalo for your patience and understanding!
