The Maui Ocean Center is well worth a visit and has a very good mix of exhibits both inside and out. My favorite is the honu (green turtle) pond where you can get up close and see the turtles being fed. There is also an amazing tunnel you can walk through and see sharks swimming all around you. The size of the aquarium is just right for young children as they can see all the exhibits without tiring out. Two other unexpected surprises at the aquarium are the gift shop and restaurant. The gift shop has a very nice selection of high quality, made-on-island, items such as hand fired ceramics. They also have a nice selection of books and toys. The restaurant is a little expensive (not more so than most places on Maui), but serves a great lunch menu and is extremely convenient.

PROS: Green turtles up close
CONS:

After a few great days at the beach we'd thought we'd mix it up a little and head over to the aquarium. Overall the Maui Ocean Center is a great place to take the kids. It's a bit dinky but there are two great fish tanks that make it worth while. The final tank with the 8 ft. tiger shark, hammerheads and huge rays is incredible. It's one of the best collections of fish I have seen in an aquarium. And hold onto your hat -- this is one of the windiest spots on the island.

PROS: Sharks, hammerheads, rays, etc.
CONS: A little dinky, very windy

If you love fish, you will love Maui Ocean Center! Go here and bring your whole family, this place is actually pretty educational for the little ones. You can even touch animals here, which is pretty awesome. This tourist attraction, if you can call it that, is actually pretty expensive. My favorite part of the center was the turtle pool.

The Maui Ocean Center isn't cheap, but it gives you a good return for what you paid by packaging education and fun. Here you will get to take a close look at Maui's marine life, what might have seen or what might have seen you when you were in the water.
Kids and adults alike love "the tunnel" and it really is a not to be missed experience.

The Maui Ocean Center is a great place when you want to have the kids do something educationa and they want to do something that's fun. They never lose interest, because there is so much to see and do. They especially enjoy going through the tunnel where you are surrounded by water and local marine life.

This is one of the top five attractions to experience on your visit to Maui. It isn't as large as its mainland conterparts but is an excellent example of what you could see snorkeling along the coastline of Maui. Children and adults will be entranced by the exhibits.

PROS: Turtle pool, tunnel through the shark tank.
CONS: None

My 6 year-old absolutely loves this aquarium. Since he was 6 months old we have gone there at least 15 times. I regret to not purchasing the year pass. His favorite attraction is probably the shark area. He loves sharks or anything with sharp teeth. My favorite attraction is the "touch pool" where you can see and feel sea urchins and other sea animals in their own environment. All of the attractions are not only fun, but they're also very educational. Next to each display are fun facts and games to learn about each attraction. This is a fun place to go for a family day that's both exciting and educational. Kama'aina rates apply if you are a hawaii resident which helps out a lot. There is also a concession stand and restaurant. The gift shop is a lot of fun, also.

While the Maui Ocean Center is small, it is uniquely designed and well worth the cost. Ticket prices are $20 per adult and $13 for children ages 13 and up. Seniors ages 65 and up would only pay $17 per person.

Maui Ocean Center is divided into two exhibits: Living Reef and Open Ocean. Everything you see at the Maui Ocean Center is alive and from Hawaii. Our favorite part at the Maui Ocean Center was the Tunnel located in the Open Ocean exhibit. You walk through a 54-foot see-through tunnel where youre surrounded by ocean life. It is simply beyond imaginable.

Like to see your sharks from a distance? Make sure to visit the Maui Ocean Center, and enjoy an interactive experience at this great attraction. This truly is a "tourist site" worth visiting. There is plenty of free parking available.
