  • They accept donation to go in but it should be free they only have 2 small tanks nothing really interesting to show. It should be free.

  • This cute little touch tank place is right between the beach and the strip. $1 admission gives you a shady place to hang for 15-20 minutes and learn about the native sea creatures. Staff...

  • A terrific surprise that we stumbled on the Blue Ocean Discovery Center. The volunteers we so sweet and let us spend plenty of time at the touch tank. They also gave my 3 and 5 year old great explanations of whales, lobsters, and horseshoe crabs. All the plastic sea animals were great for hands on participation. Don't visit Hampton beach without stopping here for a small donation!
  • Really cute “aquarium”. Super small but very informational. When i went, it was free to enter but they were accepting donations. They have 3 different tanks, one of them being a touch tank with tiny crabs that they make pinch proof; the others being observation tanks.
  • My family loves this place! Several sea creatures in the touch tank. Friendly voluntees. One dollar per person suggested donation to get in. A couple of viewing tanks as well. They also sponsor beach clean up. Get a bag and clean up your part of the beach during a walk.
  • I didn’t like how they put graffiti all over the state park advertising their business kind of tacky
  • Great fun for the entire family! Staff is friendly and full of fun facts about out seashore!! Looking forward to visiting again this summer.
