Marine Science Center, Daytona Beach Reviews - Write a Review
Absolutely loved this place. My husband and I showed up just in time to feed the stingrays and that was so awesome. The entrance fee is inexpensive and I really enjoyed seeing the turtles and all the other animals.
Such a great little place. The staff interact with the guests, answer questions, and educate. Petting and feeding the stingrays is a highlight for sure. Also seeing the turtles in the hospital area is pretty fascinating. And the cost is beyond reasonable. If you come often get the family membership. It more than pays for itself.
We stumbled on this place just driving up the coastline from Daytona Beach. The admission price was very reasonable, so we took the kids in. They had a BLAST! They watched a presentation on a raptor, helped unroll an anaconda skin, pet and fed sting rays, learned about sea turtles, and so much more! It's worth a stop in.
My children loved feeding and petting the rays. They also loved being able to ask the staff questions. Shannon was absolutely wonderful and really took the time to explain things to my children at levels they understand. Then, they got the added joy of seeing the octopus playing! They were so excited to see that as well as being able to hold all the sea urchins and sea cucumbers. They were really excited to see the not very full sea turtle hospital because that means there aren't a lot of sick or injured turtles! We are already planning another visit. This place is wonderful for teaching conservation and care. I highly recommend it!
It was our first visit and we enjoyed learning about the stingrays, raptors, turtles, and various birds and fish. It's a great place to take children to learn about wildlife and things we can do to help them.
