We invite you to come to our Discovery Center for a visit during April School Vacation week! Our Discovery Center will be open for self guided exploration, with a few hands on activities available. Our NMLC personnel will be available for questions and to provide information about the important work we do caring for stranded marine animals.

Please be aware, that this is not a tour of our animal hospital. National Marine Life Center is a marine wildlife rehabilitation hospital, so we do not allow the public into the hospital where we house our seal and sea turtle patients. This is for their safety and comfort, as they are wild animals and we want to minimize stress. This is also for the safety of our visitors, as wild animals can carry zoonotic diseases. We do have two live box turtles that are available for viewing in their enclosure during your visit. Depending on time of year, we may also have native turtle hatchlings in house for viewing.

Cancellation must be 24 hours in advance. If within 24 hours, no refund will be issued.

National Marine Life Center

Founded in 1995, the National Marine Life Center is an independent, non-profit organization. We rehabilitate and release stranded marine mammals and sea turtles in order to advance science and education in marine wildlife health and conservation.

Marine animals make ideal teaching tools. Dolphins, whales, seals, and sea turtles are charismatic and interesting. The ocean depths in which they live are mysterious and exciting. By using marine animals as subject material, National Marine Life Center instructors address topics from biology to physics, writing composition to art, math to technology.
