Kauai Ocean Discovery comes to Lihue

Kauai Ocean Discovery, a free interactive educational center, opened in early 2020 at the Kukui Grove Center in Lihue.

The center, which is affiliated with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation, includes displays and exhibits on humpback whales, Hawaiian monk seals, sea turtles, albatrosses and other marine life. Videos, hands-on activities and staff help explain life in the ocean, animal adaptations and the impacts of humans on sea conditions. 

The center also features a “Keiki Corner” with ocean-themed activities for small children. There are rotating exhibits, monthly special events, and a weekly ocean talk and tour every Thursday at 10 a.m.
