I was a wonderful experience. Also, the volunteers gave us a great recommendation for dinner and told us where the best beach in the area was.

don't miss the sting Ray feeding at 1030. You get to feed the sting rays yourself. Really fun for kids.

Went on an unusually cool, rainy Florida day. Staff was wonderful. Grandkids loved the sea ray touch tank. Grandma and mom should have dressed better for weather. Will try again on a warm, sunny day. Nice way to spend a few hours w the family.

Great place to go for a nice, informative morning or afternoon. The walking distances between exhibits are minimal so small children and senior citizens will have little problem seeing everything.

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.
