Tangs, Manta Rays and Sharks, Oh My! Mar 22

Maui Ocean Center

Maui Ocean Center  was recently voted the “top-rated attraction in Hawai’i by a Zagat Survey in U.S. Family Travel Guide” and with so many learning opportunities throughout the center it is no wonder why, with catchy names like Turtle Lagoon  and Hammerhead Harbor children  all but run between attractions to see what they can see.
Kids of all ages  are mesmerized as they walk through the 54-foot tunnel surrounded by a 750,000 gallon display tank filled with sharks,stingrays,manta rays  and thousands of brightly colored fish. Throughout the day visitors have an opportunity to interact and learn as they watch the divers in the tank feed the fish and they can communicate with them by asking questions through the tour guide leading the learning session.

Captivating Displays

In addition to so many interesting and interactive marine displays they also have a wonderful gift shop Maui Ocean Treasures, featuring Pandora  jewelry and a vast collection of art work, t-shirts, Christmas ornaments,fossils,toys ,books and much more.
Ocean view dining  is available  with a quick snack at Reef Cafe’ or ocean view dining at the award winning Seascape Ma’alaea Restaurant, consider this a unique location to host a group event.
The mission of the Maui Ocean Center is to foster understanding, wonder and respect for Hawai’i’s Marine Life, and for their efforts named a “Leader in Responsible Tourism” in Islands Magazine Top 100 Blue List.
