This unique facility is a great way to spend time away from the beach on a cloudy day. Its informative but ... also very entertaining, with lots to do and see including feeding stingrays and learning about the turtles that nest on Florida's shores. You'll be glad you visited.

My husband and I stopped here on a sunny afternoon. We enjoyed the indoor exhibits and the sting rays. This is definitely catered to families and young children, but we did enjoy ourselves.

We loved that everyone was able to feed the stingrays! The staff was knowledgeable and kind. It was a nice break from the beach for the kids, and they loved learning about the turtles, stingrays, sharks and fish.

Educational and interesting. A very small aquarium near the Ft Pierce causeway. Took my friends 2 year old, he had a great time, not just in the center but the playground is right outside. Great value

A nice place to visit. The kids couldn't get enough of petting the sting ray. And the shark!! Awesome! My friends at home could not believe how well we could see the shark just swimming around, We will probably go back.

Watching this gem expand and serve our community in its endeavor to educate others about marine life is a pleasure - every local citizen needs to see the wonderful facility and it's a great spot to bring out of town guests to give them a lesson of our wonderful environment with hands on experiences and so much more.

We went here with our 4 and 6 year olds. They loved it!! They got to feed the stingrays, touch some others in the touch tank, see the sea turtles, and the large fish/shark exhibit is so neat!! We went on the mangrove trails and investigated the plants. Bring water and wear sunscreen!! Many parts are shaded. The employees are... More
