  • Our family of 13 had a wonderful time there! The Employees are very friendly and very engaging everyone at each of the stations. My twin granddaughters had a lot of questions and all of them got answers with the explanation of her answer! It's one of those places that on the outside you're wondering why and how are all of us going to fit in here and how will my 4 mo old great-grandson handle it. NO Worries are needed! The Sea Urchins were my great-grandsons favorite station. My favorite was the Stingrays! There's two of them. One that's a few years old that loved being petted and one that's only 6 months old. Not kin to each other, but the older is teaching the younger one that humans can be trusted in their home! All of us were enjoying everything and can honestly say that it is a must see!

  • Great place for anyone young or old! Aquarium, Turtle Hospital, Wildlife Rehab, Speakers, Gift Shop - something for everyone. Wildlife Festival was fun with live music, food, information booths, activities for the kids, live aminal presentations/speakers - plus a Pelican Rehab Release at Dog Beach. Easy to visit Ponce Inlet Light House & the Marine Science Center on the same day.

  • My 8 year old daughter loves this place. My wife and I enjoy it also. It's a great way to get kids involved with nature. One of our favorite activities is petting the live stingrays.

  • We are on our way back home from Ormond Beach and was told about this place. It was all right. Really couldn't see the sea turtles too much because they were in big tanks down below. I'm glad this place is there to take care of them because I love Turtles. I'm sure our admission goes to take care of the marine life and the birds. The employees were very nice and knowledgeable. The facility was very clean and the critters seem to be well taken care of.

  • Great inexpensive place to take the family and learn a little bit about some local wildlife. The animals there are mainly those that cannot be released in the wild. They usually have a presentation of one of the animals in the classroom. One of the times we were there they highlighted and owl and this last time we were there they highlighted the six foot long snake. There's a stingray touch tank for the kids and adults, they also have some tanks there for viewing. They also rehabilitate Tate Turtles and there are a few birds in the sanctuary. It's a great place to visit to use in conjunction with going to the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse, there are some nice lunch places nearby, a small ice cream shop, and the beach is only blocks away.
