Maui Ocean Center, the largest tropical aquarium in the western hemisphere, opened in 1998. Since then, it has drawn thousands of visitors to discover Hawaii’s undersea world in a captivating, educational setting. Aptly termed "The Hawaiian Aquarium," this 3-acre marine park replicates the natural ocean ecosystem. Here you'll only encounter animals that occur in Hawaii—many of which are found nowhere else in the world.

Featuring the largest collection of live corals in the nation, and over 60 exhibits—including interpretive displays, outdoor touch pools, and a 750,000-gallon Open Ocean exhibit with 240-degree view acrylic tunnel—this marine park helps visitors develop an understanding and appreciation of Hawai‘i’s marine environment.

Voted the “Top Family Attraction” in Hawai‘i by Zagat Survey’s U.S. Travel Guide, visit Maui Ocean Center to marvel at the Pacific’s underwater world as you walk through a clear underwater tunnel to view sharks, sea turtles, manta rays and much more.
