  • Great learning place, staff are well educated professionals who really love what they do!
  • This location has some printed information and promotional items for sale. No hands on or information about their work
  • In looking for things to do on our family vacation in Alaska with children ages 5, 8 and 9 I found the Creatures of the Dock tour and thought this would be so much fun for the kids. Well it was outside a lot fun and very interesting for us adults ages 36 to 66. There was other adults off a cruise ship who were enjoying just as much. Our guide/researcher pointed out many species growing under the docks and on boats that have not left the harbor in awhile. She was fantastic with the kids. She pulled out a true sea star and let everyone place it on their arm, it would pull up on your hair and skin. She pulled out a sea urchin for all to touch or place in their palm and showed you how to touch others anemones that were attached to the docks. They are very careful to put all back where they found them and that you are very tender with all. If you are a family ask for the family discount, was very cheap price for a great hour of your time. Highly recommend.
  • Very friendly and helpful staff! I took pictures of a bird I couldn't find in our field guides and they identified it immediately. They do educational, hands-on things for the area's youth. Better than them wasting their minds and lives playing video games.
  • Great explanation of the sculptures. Explanation of trips and drop by harbor options ..... really awesome place!
