“WOW!”

Ocean Science Discovery Center
Reviewed 4 July 2017

They claim it to contain 3/4 million gallons of water. I really don't have a frame of reference but I can state this flatly - it's HUGE. Sea critters of all shape and size. And seahorses. I love seahorses!
Well worth the price of admission and an afternoon (or morning).
Highly Recommended.

This is a nice little aquarium. Plenty of fish (of course), several specie of sharks, some rays, turtles, and jellies. The octopus is hand fed, which is really fascinating to watch, and it's also interesting to watch it work open a jar with a fish in it. There is a whale section and a porpoise section as well. 2-3 hours should be adequate to go through. A ubiquitous gift shop and photo op make this place much like any other I've been to.

The Maui Ocean Center was very well done. I would recommend paying the extra #3.00 for the headsets so you can get more out of the experience.

Interesting and informative aquarium/ocean center with enough exhibits to occupy a family for several hours. Many kinds of fish, plus a very interesting jellyfish exhibit. At the shark tunnel, you can actually sit on the ledge and truly watch these magnificent creatures as opposed to just walking through a tunnel as in some other locations. Interactive exhibits as well. You will see alot of sea life and definitely learn a thing or two as well. Great place to go - not just on a rainy day!

This is an awesome place to visit with the family. The exhibits show all of the species you may see when snorkeling. On our last visit they had baby turtles, too cute. I particularly enjoyed the jellyfish tank. The main tanks is huge and has an underwater tunnel to walk through.
