Shark time at MOC
It's Shark Week at Maui Ocean Center, where activities include special daily presentations, children's activities and a sleepover, all geared toward educating aquarium guests about sharks and their role in the ocean ecosystem and Hawaiian culture.
Most Shark Week activities are included with aquarium admission of $24 for adults, $21 for age 65 and older, and $17 for children 3 to 12, with the exception of the sleepover and an upgrade package.
A Sea Talk at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday will highlight the mano, or shark. The talk will be followed by video footage of sharks feeding in the wild in Fiji and a recording of a whale shark, the largest of the species.
On Friday, children in grades 3 to 8 are invited to sleep with the sharks at the "Sensational Sharks" sleepover. Children will have the opportunity to feed hammerhead sharks, touch fossilized shark teeth, make shark crafts, watch educational shark movies and more.
The sleepover starts at 5:30 p.m. and ends at 8 a.m. Saturday. Price is $60 per child with a 15 percent discount for MOC members. Call (808) 270-7075 for reservations. The center is at 192 Maalaea Road.
