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.
Although we are temporarily closed, our Marine Team has taken this opportunity to further renew and refresh our award-winning Aquarium of Hawai`i.
The health and well-being of our guests, team and marine life are of utmost importance to us. With guidance from health and government authorities, we will be implementing required and recommended enhanced safety measures to provide you with a comfortable park experience with peace of mind.
At Maui Ocean Center, we encourage connections with nature. Be awe-inspired by our spectacular ocean view and breathe the fresh Pacific Ocean air; be mesmerized by the abundance of our tropical marine life, and be exhilarated by the magnificence of our new Humpbacks of Hawai`i exhibit and immersive virtual experience.
When the time is right, we welcome you to create memories together through the beauty of our ocean and its native inhabitants.
A hui hou – until then,
