HAWAI‘I’S marine life connection
Wade into Hawai‘i’s wondrous underwater world
As you move from the reef to the open ocean, you’ll discover marvelous species endemic to the Hawaiian Islands. Watch jellyfish drift like distant galaxies and hammerhead sharks patrol feisty schools of ‘ulua (trevally). Hear Hawaiian green sea turtles surface to take noisy breaths in our Turtle Lagoon.

Celebrate the cultural traditions of first Hawaiians, their spiritual connection to the ocean and land that feeds them. Take your time exploring Kaho‘olawe: A Story of History and Healing.
