We would like to take this moment to thank the community for the immense support for our education programs. Over the past 8 years, the Marine Center offered hands-on activity-based marine science programs for up to 30,000 visitors a year. With no outside funding and a very small staff, it is a testament of what can be done for marine science education and conservation. A big mahalo to our island 'ohana for the support and the wonderful years.
Conveniently located near Honolulu International Airport, the Living Art Marine Center is the ideal place for your next school field trip or group outing.
Our mission: to teach people about the marine environment in a hands-on and interactive way. Our field trip options are unique, fully guided, hands-on, interactive, and engaging. Through our programs, we strive to enlarge respect and understanding of the marine ecosystem, as well as inspire our visitors to make a difference in the protection of the coral reef and its inhabitants.
Field trips to the Living Art Marine Center may include a learning section focusing on a grade appropriate topic, a game or hands-on activity enhancing the students’ learning experience, a visit to our Discovery Zone to see or touch tide pool critters, and a free craft activity such as Gyotaku fish print on paper.
For a nominal fee, students can engage in various other D.I.Y. activities such as shell carving, and Gyotaku T-shirt designing. Looking to enhance your experience even further? Consider booking one of our new add-on workshops or labs.
It's never been easier to book a field trip to the Marine Center.

Could not attend the group session due to illness, so instead of rescheduling, they allowed us to come in and complete the activities separately, even providing a tour of the center. Showed us a fantastic dragon eel and answered many questions from my kiddos!
Thanks so much for going out of your way and providing fantastic service!"
