  • Visited Florida oceanographic center in Stuart, FL for the first time last week. Brought my cousins family, including an infant and toddler. Lots to do, great education for all and petting and feeding stingrays truly a great experience. Staff was friendly and cute gift shop too. Liked it so much bought family plan so we can visit more often with all our family members. Views from 3rd floor were amazing!! Great day out for all.
  • We did not know what to expect when we entered the Oceanographic Coastal Center. It exceeded our expectations in every way. We walked over to a sea turtle rescue pool and listened to a VERY informative guide share information on their rescue, habits and the ecosystems they live in now. We went on a tail walk with another guide who was just as informative and shared so much information on the trail plant life, the oyster restoration and so much more. If you have at least two hours...GO, learn and enjoy some of the beauty of Florida.
