  • Wonderful, little educational experience! Our party, 4 adults and 5 children, really enjoyed this place. They pack many exhibits in their small space. I figure you'll spend 30 minutes to 1 hour there. Erin was an excellent guide. I highly recommend!
  • Excellent small marine center in Ft Myers Beach, FL. We checked out the interesting exhibits then took the Working Waterfront tour lead by the head of the center and the volunteer coordinator. We learned about the shrimping industry, the boats & current foreign competition. Then saw boats offloading their hauls, weighing the catch and loading it into freezer trucks for transport to market in Tampa. Also net makers in action, boats & outriggers under repair and various businesses that support the fleets. Highlights included local stories told by the tour leaders and delicious samples of Gulf pink shrimp. Thanks Joanne and Dan, we really enjoyed our visit!
