It is small but enjoyable and a must see if you are in the area. They have a touch tank and things to do for the kiddos. They have very nice tanks. The fish are beautiful. All of the volunteers are very nice and knowledgeable. It is free and they take donations. The gift center offers a few books, posters, toys and t shirts.Check online for their hours, I think they are closed on Mondays. They also have a feeding schedule its fun to watch the sharks and others feed.

The Sea Center is a wonderfully interesting and educational experience. In addition to a touch tank for children that adults can also enjoy, there are several room sized aquariums that contain fish indigenous to the Gulf of Mexico, and local wetlands. Information is posted about each of the tanks. Tours are provided through a fish hatchery, fishing contests for children are frequently provided, and there is a boardwalk through the surrounding wetlands, where visitors can see local flora and fauna. Truly a unique experience!

This is a great place to take the kids! And its free! But I think they accept donations at the door which we do each time we've been here. Anytime we have young visitors to our house from out of town, we take them here. Kids love it! Daddy too since I love to fish!

I think it may have had something to do with the fact that we went in the off season but my husband and I had a 2 whole tour guides to ourselves and it was surpringly entertaining. I never dreamed that so much technology and planning went into a fish hatchery. The aquariums are FANTASTIC and beautiful. If you are traveling with kids this would also be a super break and whether you mean to or not, you learn something :)
