“One of the 'BEST'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

Fantastic place we spent 2-3 hours here and could have stayed longer the Tanks we all clean.You start with the shallows and then as you go round the fish change as you go deeper in to the ocean.

“Beautiful aquarium, but not an all day excursion!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

We visited the Maui Ocean Center and enjoyed our time there. Loved the jellyfish displays and the shark tank was really neat...the kids loved it!
Thought there would be more to see and do, but did everything in about an hour. Great for a quick excursion but not an all day event.

“A must- so glad we ended up going”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

We were debating whether or not to go. It is so nice outside, who feels like being indoors? And besides, we snorkel lots and saw tons of fishes and turtles. Plus, we've been to some cool ocean centers before. Sounds about right?

Well folks, so glad we did go there!

Seeing and learning about the diverse ocean creatures was great. The center is just the right size, IMO- not too small (like a former reviewer said) and not too overwhelming. The highlight was by far seeing the shark feeding and learning about sharks and rays. I thought we were going for the kid but turns out my husband had the most fun-like a kid in a candy store standing next to the shark tank.

Staff was extremely knowledgeable, we also appreciated the little magnifying glass for the fish tanks for kiddies and the little "petting zoo" for star fish and sea cucumbers. We learned a lot in a fun environment. Plan to go when they teach about and feed the sharks (I think 11 and 2?).

“Fantastic Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

We participated in their shark dive and had tons of fun! Scott and John were great fun and very informative. If you enjoy diving and marine life, this is a must!
