Default Maui Ocean Center

The Maui Ocean Center is located at a small bay at Wailuku on Maui. It's a $20 million facility that was built in 1998. The exhibits are amazing and it's much larger than the Waikiki Aquarium. I was so absorbed in shooting pictures of tropical fish and getting to my next destination on Maui, that I totally missed getting any shots of the shark tunnel where you walk in a tube through the middle of all the giant fish.

One of the cool things is that there are several outdoor displays, so you can see the fish in more natural lighting. I took more than 50 pictures here. I'll be posting most of them in the member photo forum when I get a chance to identify them all, but here are a few examples.
