You might think you’re in the wrong place when you see a sign that directs you onto a narrow, winding gravel road that leads to the field station. Keep driving on this road, it’s not far until you reach the parking lot of the field station.
The very large building, while impressive in its architecture, is rather empty. It does contain hands-on tanks which provide an up-close and personal encounter with local sea life such as starfish, sea cucumbers and sea urchins. There are also large aquariums displaying local fish species.
The building consists of self-guided opportunities but ask the very accommodating staff for an interpretive tour to get the most out of your time here. There is no food available but an on-site kitchen is available to host catered parties and special events. Sunday brunch is served in the summer. Entrance fee is a very reasonable $5.00.
