AAA Editor Notes
Maui Ocean Center, The Hawaiian Aquarium, 192 Mā‘alaea Rd. (SR 30) at Mā‘alaea Harbor, is a state-of-the-art aquarium. Living coral, colorful tropical reef fish, large open-ocean fish, sharks, green sea turtles, stingrays, eels and sea jellies are some of the indigenous marine life displayed. An acrylic tunnel takes visitors through a 750,000-gallon exhibit, giving the illusion of being under the sea.
The Marine Mammal Discovery Center features interpretive stations as well as displays about humpback whales, monk seals and dolphins. Presentations by ocean naturalists are given throughout the day.
Food is available.
