This was our second time here and it was still very enjoyable. So many different ocean creatures to look at AND they have a great touch tank that you can touch & hold a few little creatures:) The staff are very informative and friendly. We will for sure go for another visit!

At the end of the river, there is a spot were the famous "Trapper Nelson" (Florida's crocodile... More

A GREAT place to bring your little ones! As you enter a beautiful fish tank displays a mangrove and its ecosystem. Follow around and enjoy a touch tank full of interesting sea creatures! A couple more fish tanks, water conservation displays and a cute little gift shop. Perfect for younger students or even preschoolers. Check on line before you go... More

Educational but fun place to visit. The hands on aspect makes it unique. Fun for all ages! Knowledgable staff clearly loves their job and adds to experience.

I took my 4 1/2 year old granddaughters to this for the first time yesterday. They enjoyed seeing all the fish tanks and especially the touch tank. It is small and easy to get in and out . Educational and informative. Some of the prettiest fish tank displays in the area. Also, there is a very nice playground in the... More

Nice enough but just not much here. The volunteers (?) are nice and there are things to learn and see. Might be fun for kids but its about a 10 minute visit for adults.You may want to consider McArthur Park, 10 miles south (very nice and more to do but there is a fee) or Jonathan Dickenson Park, about 10...

So many great interactive displays to help people understand how we must live in harmony with the ecosystems around us. Admission is free, but throw a couple of dollars in the donation bin since they deserve it.

This is a wonderful, relatively new facility with cheerful volunteers that encouraged the kids to pick up sea cucumbers and showed them how starfish look on both sides and how they bury themselves. The volunteers also explained about the many lovely puffer and exotic fish in more than 4 tanks, as well as about their BIG moray eel. There are... More

The river cruise to Trapper Nelson's was scenic and we say alligators, osprey in nests, and many of the area's beautiful fauna.
