This facility is located just over the bridge from Sarasota near Longboat Key and is worth a visit, not only to learn about Florida's sea life but to experience a hands-on opportunity for yourself and your children to see and touch sea life up close and personal. They also offer a boat ride out into the Gulf where they scoop up whatever happens to be at that location and then they explain the live objects that come up in the net. Some are quite rare and beautiful. Others are weird and wonderful...This place can't be beat as a place to visit while in the area! Very highly recommended!
