This is a nice little aquarium. Plenty of fish (of course), several specie of sharks, some rays, turtles, and jellies. The octopus is hand fed, which is really fascinating to watch, and it's also interesting to watch it work open a jar with a fish...More

The Maui Ocean Center was very well done. I would recommend paying the extra #3.00 for the headsets so you can get more out of the experience.

This is a good stop for folks traveling with little ones. As an adult it is interesting, particularly the tunnel. The gift shop is amazing. It can be done in a couple hours or longer depending on your pace.

Great way to spend time just before boarding our flight back home. The exhibits were informative and fascinating. Being able to observe so many beautiful creatures which inhabit Hawaii was truly amazing! Book online for a discount - we went early to avoid the crowds.

We were leaving the island that evening, so snorkeling, beach activities, etc., were all out of the picture, because we'd have no place to clean up. Plus - it was a rather windy day, so we went to the Ocean Center. I've been to the...More
