This was a cool tour. The main building had a few baby stingrays and starfish. It's very classroom friendly. The boat tour was very informative. Spotted a few dolphins before take off, none really after that, but we did see a manatee.
We brought our granddaughters (ages 7,14,16). They enjoyed the visit. The volunteers were excited to share their knowledge. A lobster had molted the night before. The volunteer showed and explained how the lobster molted. We also enjoyed a boat ride through the Mangrove Forest, got to see several dolphins and birds. Our Boat Captain and volunteer were fun and knowledgeable.

I learned that the invasive Brazilian Pepper plants I've been pulling with my bare hands often trigger a poison ivy reaction in allergic... 更多

I attended each... 更多

The time flew by! The guide managed to entertain... 更多
To introduce our family to the area, we took them on a Dolphin and Manatee Tour. It was informative and we saw plenty of dolphins, manatees, osprey, and other wildlife while on a large tour boat on the river. We also went on a kayak tour and it was lots of fun!

The Marine Discovery Centre has wonderful staff, very helpful and knowledgeable. The lovely volunteer at the desk helped me arrange transportation to the dock and water as I had arrived at the centre by taxi. Captain Gary was a very skilful pilot, navigating the sandbars of Mosquito Lagoon and Ponce Inlet with great care. Lisa, the naturalist on board, knows... 更多
