The Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary will relocate its Honolulu office to the new NOAA Inouye Regional Center at the end of January 2014. Located on Ford Island in Pearl Harbor, Oahu, the center utilizes two historic aircraft hangers that are joined by a modern structure to create a 315,000-square-foot facility on a 35-acre campus to house 700 staff. The modern facility is LEED Gold Certified and includes exhibits, a library, cafeteria, auditorium, classroom, Science on a Sphere, dive center, training rooms, conference and meeting rooms, laboratories, necropsy rooms, and a media room.

The sanctuary's new Honolulu office mailing address is as of January 23, 2014:

If you wish to visit the facility or you are planning to meet with sanctuary staff, please get in touch with sanctuary staff ahead of your visit to familiarize yourself with access protocols to Ford Island and the facility.
