We drove with kids to see Maui Ocean Center, and don't think I would ever go back, there was nothing special there, we should of instead take a boat trip.

We were prepared to spend the day here and ended up only getting two hours out of it. The gift shop is bigger than the animal displays. Most is outdoors. If this had been crowded, it would have been a horrible trip, because there is...More

I've been to many many similar attractions all over the U.S., and this one is very well done! They do a great job of focusing exclusively on local species, and showing them to you in both large-tank and more specialized exhibits. I found the exhibits...More

I feel as though the fish, sharks etc are beautiful and the assortment of different species is fantastic, the knowledge is great, some of the attractions could be cleaned up and needs some maintenance. Right now it's "turtle mania" but there was 6 turtles that...More

This aquarium had such a wonderful variety of fish, coral, jellyfish, sharks etc. It was interesting to walk thru because you felt like you were snorkeling and not getting wet.

The last time we went to the Maui Ocean Center it was still under construction, but you could tell it was going to be good. It now has a little something for everyone, including a "petting zoo" for kids that allows them to see and...More
