It’s no secret that the waters off the coast of the Hawaiian Islands are teeming with incredible sea life and reefs just waiting to be explored. And while not everyone feels comfortable snorkeling, and even fewer are scuba certified, the entire family will enjoy getting up close and personal with the sea life that lives in the waters surrounding our beautiful islands during a trip to the Maui Ocean Center. Sure, a visit to the Maui Ocean Center is as fun as it is educational, but did you know that you could embark on an epic behind-the-scenes tour where you can feed sea turtles?
