Hawaii Vacation Day 11 – Maui Ocean Center

Thursday 11/22/07 Thanksgiving

Our last full day in Hawaii. We tried to go for a snorkel when we got up, but the waves were just too choppy. Instead, we spent most of the day at the Maui Ocean Center Aquarium. It is really a very nice aquarium, even if it is a little pricey. They’ve got some very nice reef exhibits as well as a large tiger shark that is just about to be released back into the wild.

Being Thanksgiving, many places were closed, but we did manage to sneak in with reservations at Roy’s Restaurant. Paulette at WildCare had recommended this restaurant for their chocolate soufflé (i.e. chocolate volcano). What can I say? The soufflé was absolutely magnificent.
