Day trip

Great 1/2 day excursion. Kids loved the touch tank and the fish feeding time. Perfect for an overcast day as the majority of the place is outside.

Lots of neat kid activities. My four year old asks to go back every time we visit family here. Dancing fountains where the kids can splash around are a big hit

I visited with my daughter's class on a field trip. The students had a blast touching the stingrays and checking out the cool animals in the touch tank. I would take my family back for sure!

The Center has something for all ages, and each of us had some favorites. I liked the tour of the coastal area. Very informative, and the guides were very nice! My teen kids liked the fish feeding and my husband liked the touch tank.

Try to arrive in time for the stingray feeding demo (10:30 and 1:30 daily) -- it's really fun to see how animated they get and the kids get to touch and feed the stingrays. The lecture on sea turtles (at 11 and 2 daily) is also very interesting. They have a touch tank with crabs, sea cucumbers and conches. Very... More

This is a great place to spend an afternoon. Feed the stingrays and touch the sea stars, sand fleas, and horseshoe crabs. The talks are interesting and the walks are well designed. Will return soon.

My kids (15,14,13) & I got to feed the stingrays, play some fun "informational" games, see the fish/sharks/turtles, and guess the fish on the wall. My kids all agreed, it was more fun than expected!! (For teens). Not too crowded & a nice 1.5 hours spent. They also have a cute gift shop.

Very interesting ocean life--only took about an hour for me to see what I wanted too. You could walk about a miles though to see lots more. Loved the turtles and the stingrays!
