At Maui Ocean Center, our mission is to foster understanding, wonder, and respect for Hawaii’s marine life. We invite kamaʻāina and visitors worldwide to develop a deeper 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!
Every 30 minutes from 10am to 4pm
10:30am and 2:30pm
11:00am and 3:00pm
