Tybee Island Marine Science Center Reviews & Ratings

  • Very cute place. You enter through the gift shop and are immediately greeted by a very sweet girl at the front counter. There you purchase tickets and go into the back. It's a very small, local aquarium but it's fun. There is a 'touch' station and all staff is very knowledgeable . All creatures are from the local area and are well-cared for. We really loved the info on sea turtles!

  • Very small place. We had 11 girls and adults in there luckily we were the only ones there so not an issue. Nice learning experience for all of us. We took a beach walk and it was wonderful other than having issues hearing. You can't turn off the ocean waves so not sure how she could have made that better. She found animals for us, we found some, and she was so knowledgeable. Great little adventure for sure!

  • Our girl scout troop scheduled a tour here with Justin. The girls (age 10) were captivated the whole 2+ hours as he showed us the exhibits and led us to the beach to discover sea creatures we had never seen. Justin was amazing with the girls and patiently answered all the questions. Great guy with passion for the ocean and a gift with children! One of the girls' favorite part of the trip! I bet the new center will be awesome!

  • I just made it to the lobby of this place. My gosh my golly was there a very nice lady working at the front desk of the place. I just remember walking around and browsing. They had a lot of posters and cool things in the lobby of the place. I wasn't up for spending any hard cash to go any further but it was a great experience all around.

  • Great little spot to check out wildlife living on and around Tybee! Cute gift shop and neat things to see. It's a very small place, but worth the $5 per person (over 4yrs). We really enjoyed it!

    • I think the entry fee for Tybee Island Marine Science Center is somewhere around USD 5 per person. They also offer some great programs throughout the week for girl scouts.
