National Marine Life Centre Reviews & Ratings
We absolutely loved our visit here and will be back! The interns, Kali and Kaitlyn, were outstanding! They answered all of my daughter's MANY questions! We adopted a sea turtle named Ladybug and learned so much about marine life. Thank you for an amazing experience!
I have mixed reviews on this one. I really did like it. It was a cute FREE educational center that is probably in place to help fund the rehabilitation of sea animals. What would make it just a little better, would be a volunteer who could awncer questions that we had. The young man who was on hand seemed to be there for technical purposes. He was nice but not eager to help. Another thing that would have been nice would have been able to see the animals they have in rehab that are also up for adoption. The adoption... When you adopt an animal a little more info on how to follow their progress would be great. Again if your in the area stop in it's a cute place and they are a non profit and could use all the help they can get
great place to take kids to
As others have mentioned, this place is not an aquarium or a zoo where you go snd see tons of animals, this is like a Hospital/Rehab center for wild animals. However, you’ll be able to see (through a live feed) some of the patients that they have and they’ll take the time to both teach you about animals and tell you more about the patients Its a really cool place and everyone was super nice. They also have a gift shop and you can also “Adopt” an animal
This is not your traditional zoo or aquarium. It is a HOSPITAL for injured animals, but they offer educational experiences for young children in the summer and during spring break and fall break. If you are looking for a zooquarium experience, this is not it. But if you are looking to teach your children about wildlife and the ocean, it is great! Get on their website or facebook page to keep track of activities, fundraisers, and releases of rehabilitated animals. There are also fabulous summer college internships for students going into marine biology.
