Great for adults and kids alike! Highly educational and great views of South Maui's Coastline. Walk thru the Shark Tank and see the Black Light Jelly Fish exhibit. Great for a rainy day or during the mid-day sun!

Lisa Cavanagh

I definitely would not think it ranks in the Top 10 as stated. Talks given by the Experts were good. Don’t miss. IMAX was disappointing. Food was overpriced.

Michael N

This is a great place to spend a few hours and see local marine life. The sharks are amazing!

Carmen Strand

Very well done with many exhibits. Larger than I expected, especially for a small island. Great place to bring kids. We spent almost three hours there and caught several of the talks.

Abbey Kobza

Great rainy day activity or when the kids are too sunburnt to sit on the beach. Very educational and very exciting to see the animals and pet some.

Karisa Holzer

This is a fun place to bring your kids. They have a whole bunch of neat aquatic life.

Lorraine P

Great place for kids and Adults alike. Great for a the occassional rainy day.

Great for kids and adults alike! Perfect for a rainy day or when you need a break from the sun.

Surprised by the amount of stuff to do here. Hands on animal pool, historical museum of traditional fishing culture on Hawaii, shark tanks, underwater tunnel, etc.

The Maui Ocean Center is a great way to break up the day after a morning at the beach and lunch at one of your favorite food joints. Always fun for the young ones.

Debra B

This is a fun day trip, especially if you have kids. Mini golf next door and lots of restaurants and shopping in area!


Maui Ocean Center is one of the best aquariums. The shark tube provides awesome underwater views. The sea turtle habitat is a must see as is the hammerhead sharks. Seascapes Restaurant is located just beside the exhibits and offers wonderful fresh fish dishes.

If you have kids this is a must stop on the way from the airport to Lahaina. It's like a sea aquarium and the kids can even touch some of the wildlife.

Debbie N

Great place to get close to all you can see in Maui's ocean waters! The tunnel is my favorite place to just sit and watch the tiger sharks. Beautiful!

Timothy M

What a great place to spend half a day when you have had too much sun. Get up close to sharks and all the creatures of the sea!

Beth Gates

Great activity for the whole family, kids love the aquarium, lots of fun and learning!!

The Maui Ocean Center is a great outing for all ages. Don't miss the shark tunnel. I would save this for a rainy day or the day after a sun burn *wink*

Rod Q

This is on the way from the Kahului Airport in Maalaea and a great place to take the kids as it has a glass tunnel to look at the fish swimming over you. Very cool aquarium.

Art & Ellen S

A small but enjoyable aquarium. A bit pricey but the kids enjoy it and you will learn a lot about the marine life in and around the Hawaiian Islands.

Yasmine G

A little pricey, but the best way to see ocean life if you can't snorkel or scuba. Great for kids. They love the shark and ray tunnel! Wonderful gift shop.
