Explore Unique Marine Life at Hawaii’s Premier Aquarium

Maui Ocean Center, The Hawaiian Aquarium, allows guests to conveniently explore Hawaii’s underwater world without ever getting wet. Named Top 25 Best Aquariums in the U.S. by TripAdvisor, the Aquarium features a variety of Hawaii’s sharks, turtles, stingrays and thousands of vibrant tropical fish.

The Aquarium is home to the world’s largest collection of live Pacific corals, faithfully replicating thriving marine ecosystems in every exhibit. Journey from the shallow reef to the open ocean and encounter marine life found nowhere else in the world. A mix of over 60 indoor-outdoor exhibits allow guests to conveniently discover Hawaii’s marine life in a single day that would otherwise take a lifetime of exploration to see. Venture through breathtaking exhibits like the 750,000-gallon Open Ocean Exhibit featuring a 54ft walk-through tunnel, observe Hawaiian green sea turtles from two views, and see some of the oceans most elusive creatures up close.

Aptly named The Hawaiian Aquarium, Maui Ocean Center is dedicated to perpetuating the Hawaiian culture and the relationship that exists between the Hawaiian people and the sea. Enhance your experience with Maui’s only shark diving activity, interactive presentations, behind-the-scenes tours, and more.
