Aquarium Plus - One day admission plus one entry ticket for the 3D Humpbacks of Hawaii Exhibit & Sphere Theater

Immerse yourself in their world, a blue frontier bounded by the wonder and majesty of the humpback whale. Embarking on one of the greatest journeys from the arctic waters of Alaska to sanctuary in the Hawaiian Islands, these nomads of the sea are revered in beauty, intelligence, spirituality, and awe-inspiring power - yet, hold one of nature's most profound mysteries. The new Maui Ocean Center Humpbacks of Hawaii Exhibit & Sphere explores this great mystery in a captivating, inspirational experience that will leave you with more questions than answers. Until now, we've only been able to see humpbacks from above the ocean surface. Today, Maui Ocean Center's Sphere breaks the barrier to do what has never been done before: bring you eye-to-eye with Maui's humpback whales in their realm beneath the waves. The collective experience stirs one's emotions from admiration to curiosity, forging a new connection between mankind and nature's marvels. The Humpbacks of Hawaii Exhibit & Sphere is the first of its kind in Hawaii, adding an exciting chapter to the story and legacy of Hawaii's humpback whales.
As the first-of-its-kind in Hawai'i, the $3 million Sphere marks a new era in the confluence of technology and marine observation. The new experience will allow guests to connect with humpbacks in their world through the integration of 4k imagery, 3D active glasses and a 7.1 surround sound system. The Sphere was built with the support and collaboration of science and technology experts to create something not previously possible.

"Until now, people have only observed humpback whales from above the ocean's surface, witnessing their power and size during their infamous breaches," said Tapani Vuori, general manager of Maui Ocean Center. "Our exhibit transports guests deep into the ocean, giving them an inside look into the complex and vibrant lives of Maui's humpback whales, and allowing them to forge new connections with one of nature's greatest marvels."
Developed, produced and directed by Daniel Opitz of Ocean Mind, the film includes footage from two seasons in the waters around Maui.
