A Message From the Maui Ocean Center ʻOhana
At the Maui Ocean Center, our care goes beyond just marine life. It extends to our team members and you, our guests, as we strive to mālama kekahi i kekahi, to take care of each other. The safety of our community and marine life has been and always will be our top priority.
Following the developments in the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, the Maui Ocean Center is temporarily closed to the public as of March 18, 2020, through the end of May 2020.
During this time, the marine animals will continue to receive uninterrupted care by our expert team of exhibit curators, divers, and aquarists. The Maui Ocean Center is equipped with a robust life support system that provides 24/7 support for the marine animals and exhibits. This system, designed with failsafes to withstand natural disasters, will not be impacted by the closure.
Since the onset of COVID-19, we have enhanced our high standard of sanitation and will continue to do so through the closure period. We are deep cleaning our facilities, practicing healthy habits, and following the guidelines set by government authorities to provide our team members with a safe and sanitized workplace.
The Maui Ocean Center thanks the public for its understanding and encourages all to practice healthy habits and follow the current recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
