Must Visit in Maui
This is one of the best aquariums I've visited. The exhibits are immaculate and easy to see for all ages. Even the vegetation outside is labeled so people know what they are looking at. Loved the shark tank and demonstration.

Great sea life viewing
We enjoyed the exhibits and the variety of sea creatures. Really enjoyed the jump back whale 3-D Presentation. The only thing we were disappointed in was the tunnel because we expected to see more sea life going overhead and a larger display. Overall we were happy with the aquarium.
