The Maui Diaries, Part 6

It happens this way …

Ranked one of the ten best aquariums in the country, the Maui Ocean Center in Ma’alaea is a well-planned, well-laid-out ocean-lover’s delight. Knowledgeable folks invite you to watch them give turtles their physicals or handle sea urchins and -stars. A new I-Max exhibit puts you underwater to watch the movements of gigantic humpback whales in 3-D. On an otherwise hot day, this was the ideal spot to spend a few hours. My only regret is that I couldn’t get into the fish tanks and snorkel!
