Maui Ocean Center (e.g., the Aquarium)

The last big adventure with the Gs was visiting Maui Ocean Center (the aquarium). We opted to get a behind-the-scenes tour along with the regular DIY stroll. It was totally worth the $10 extra per person. We got to hold jellyfish (Max overcame his man o’ war psychological scars and joined in), high-five one-year-old sea turtles and feed hammerheads.

Yeah, it was cool.

The best part of the self-guided tour was definitely the shark tank and the walk-through tunnel. Tiger sharks, sting rays and puffer fish…all in one HUGE tank. We got to see the scuba divers get in that tank and feed the fish and rays…then they got out and fed the sharks.

If you are at least 15 years old, scuba certified and can get yourself over here, you too can swim with the sharks! Anyone, anyone?
