Q-Tips Say: GREAT Discovery Center for little and big kids. Very Hands on for kids – they offer all types of programs for all ages and levels of education and families. The little ones get a “treasure hunt” map to mark the creatures they find. If they can’t find one, there are young marine students who are eager to explain and assist. If they don’t know the answer, they happily go ask a “seasoned veteran” for the answer. They offer tours for inside and outside the Discovery Center.
Mrs. Q says: Great place to take the kids. Get the “treasure hunt map” and let them have fun learning about marine life, eco system and science.
Mrs. Q asks? Did you know that they mark certain marine life for tracking purposes with “hair dye”. Who would have thought! Go and enjoy, we did.
