  • We take our 2 1/2 year old grandson here, and it is perfect. Inexpensive and small, with safe places for him to run outside, without a possibility of escaping into traffic or dangerous situation. He i...  read more »
  • Excellent little nature center. My toddler and I enjoyed our few hours here with the turtles, rays, birds, and beautiful views. The center grounds are very clean and they have excellent fencing, which made for a very safe place for a toddler to explore. There are many nice places with benches and views. The free shuttle from the parking lot to the center runs every 15 minutes.
  • My wife and I visited this animal refuge shelter a few days ago.There were lots of sharks,turtles,rays,tortoises, all types of eagles,a few owls and lots more.We watched a feeding session for a Golden Eagle and a Bald Eagle.It was amazing to see such beautiful birds up close and personal.It only cost us $14 each to tour the facility which would normally take about an hour.My wife brought her digital SLR and we hung around a good 2 hours while she took photos of every creature she saw.It's a fabulous place and everyone no matter what age would find something of interest here.
  • There is a free P&R and they offer a free climated shuttle service. Just hiked the trails around the center. It was nice but not really worth the time (very short trail so you are done in about an hour if you keep it slow). Maybe the center offers a better experience?
  • Outstanding hands on Coastal exploration and interpretation center. Our Grandchildren really liked this opportunity to understand our environment and its surroundings.
  • Great place. Super hands on with the sting rays and sharks. A very great place for kids and learning about the coast. Highly recommend. It's a rare gem. We came on Sunday and barely anyone there.
