“Awesome place to visit!”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

We signed up for stand up paddle boarding lessons for three teenage girls while on vacation. It was wonderful! The staff was fantastic, friendly, and most of all very thorough with the lessons. I enjoyed reading the different exhibits inside, very informative. I can't wait to see how this is going to grow. We will definitely be returning!

“Nice educational center”
Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed learning more about the wildlife and nature of the island at the Ocean Center. The staff was super friendly too. There is nothing else like it on the island.
