The Maui Ocean Center is the largest tropical aquarium in the western hemisphere and has been here since 1998. Their natural ocean ecosystems have a variety of marine life, including many native animals that can't be found anywhere else in the world.

This is a great place to see sharks, rays, and even Honu - The Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle. They have one of the largest live coral collections in the nations and over 60 exhibits in total.

You'll find indoor exhibits as well as various outdoor attractions, including touch pools, and even a 750,000 gallon open ocean exhibit with a 240 degree tunnel. Walk through or hang out as the fish swim all around you.

The Maui Ocean Center's mission is to help visitors learn about Hawaii's marine life and they do this with an expert team of marine biologists, divers, and aquarists. If you're a love of fish and other marine life then make sure the Maui Ocean Center is on your to do list!

They're easy to find as they're centrally located in Maalaea, right by the Ma'alaea Harbor.
