At Save the Bay Exploration Center & Aquarium, families explore 14 interactive exhibits that are chock full with 140 seafaring species native to Narragansett Bay. Every hour, the aquarium staff hosts edifying activities that let visitors listen to stories, feed creatures, and explore nearby Easton’s Beach. Children marvel at the 6-foot-tall cylindrical jellyfish tank, in which translucent wanderers drift along with a circular current, unable to decide where to swim or what career path to follow. Families can hold live creatures, interacting face-to-face with spindly crabs, bizarre sea cucumbers, and funky fish. Save the Bay Exploration Center & Aquarium comprises a seafaring safari, rife with spider crabs and lobsters eager to get their picture taken with humans.

Save The Bay

Save The Bay has held to its mission since its founding in 1970: to protect, restore, and improve the Narragansett Bay region and its coastal waters through environmental action and stewardship. Save The Bay also defends the right of the public to use the Bay, encouraging visitors to act as responsible stewards of the Bay's bounty for future generations.

Today, Save The Bay's staff and volunteers continue their work from their Bay Center that serves as the heart of operations. Its stormwater-management system contains a vegetated roof, a coastal-buffer zone, swales, and basins that can absorb and filter rainwater. Made from recycled steel and metal, the center's interior hosts an array of educational programs for adults and kids. Save The Bay also maintains an Exploration Center and Aquarium, camps, and marine-life tours aboard its 45-foot US Coast Guard–certified vessel Alletta Morris, the 27-foot vessel Swift, or the 46-foot Elizabeth Morris.

I also bought this as a Christmas gift for some friends. We had a great a great time! Much better than a candle or something else none of us really need.
