Weddings & Proposals
Located in the heart of the most romantic place in the world, sits the most romantic place to tie the knot. From a rehearsal dinner, a sunset ceremony, or a unique wedding reception, Maui Ocean Center provides an under-the-sea setting, incredible views, and all the romance you can take in.
Make the day you’ll always remember... unforgettable! Take the plunge (literally!) in our enormous 750,000-gallon habitat surrounded by family & friends, stingrays & sharks. If bride and groom are SCUBA certified and true ocean lovers, we will customize an underwater wedding that is out of this world. Guests can witness the event in the comfort (and dryness!) of the 54' long acrylic tunnel which runs through the exhibit, or the large floor to ceiling viewing window.
How could anyone refuse an underwater marriage proposal? A diver will carry a sign with a message for your special sweetie! Everyone will see just how deep your love is.
