  • We signed up for the Sift and Seine program and had a wonderful time! It was very informative and fun! We plan to do it again on our return visits. It was also easy to make a reservation online.  more »

  • We happen come in at perfect time, hey brought in a sea turtle to tag and chip him release him. It was amazing they allowed us to watch and ask questions during whole process. Amazing staff and so friendly.
  • What an awesome experience! There were 4 stations of activities for our guided group to do. We sifted sand and explored the different organisms we found. We walked the beach while the director explained the sea life. We then went into the classroom and saw animals under the camera and explored the exhibits and gift shops. There is only canned water to drink in the limited gift shop, but there were more options at the pier vending machine.
