Go early in the morning. That's when they feed the animals. Gets much hotter as the day goes by.

Go to the stingray feeding where YOU get to feed the stingrays. Advance to the sea turtle area to see the loggerhead and green sea turtles. Don't miss the fish feeding. Inside you can watch the octopus, fish, oysters. Don't forget the touch tanks.

Check out the octopus indoors at the Mangrove tank. Go to the sting ray touch tank outdoors. There are 2 benches in partial shade outdoors.

This is a really cool center. You get to pet and feed stingrays. They have a very nice nature trail. Really cool lagoon with a bunch of fish to observe. Lots of information stands and friendly, knowledgeable staff.

From Our Editors

A sea turtle proudly displays its intricately patterned shell. A stingray safely brushes its sleek skin against a child’s hand, grazing the top of a 10,000-gallon tank. A bird splashes into mangrove swamps to snatch fish. Sensory experiences like these occur on a regular basis at the 57-acre Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center on Hutchinson Island, sandwiched between the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River Lagoon. As the headquarters for the nonprofit Florida Oceanographic Society, the center strives to both educate the public and inspire environmental stewardship of Florida’s coastal ecosystems.

Among the center’s many activities, visit the Sea Star Touch Tank Pavilion and watch a live feeding at the 750,000-gallon Game Fish Lagoon. Educational programs throughout the day explore the lives of sea turtles and explain how to identify local fish that refuse to wear nametags. Just past a colorful butterfly garden and aquariums at the Frances Langford Visitors Center, guests can find nature trails that wend through mangrove swamps and hardwood hammocks. Here, they can see the natural state of a bio-diverse estuary, along with endangered plants and animals that the Florida Oceanographic Society is striving to save through research as well as educational and restoration initiatives.
