  • The Marine Discovery Center has more to offer than what one might think yes they have the educational center they also have a beautiful walking trail great for dogs oyster shell recycling breathtaking views kayak launches into the inter-coastal Waterway giving access to mosquito Lagoon/ Indian River intercoastal scenic boat Tours and so much more it is certainly worth checking out to discover all that they have to offer
  • We had a wonderful kayak tour with a naturalist and volunteer. Lots of info about local birds, dolphins and manatees, and they even had a net to pull up some interesting sea creatures from the floors of the shallow waterways. Excellent family fun and the naturalist shared a bit about the local history as well. We got to see dolphins, conchs, pelicans...
  • Great fun and interesting Experience. Learned about many thing with sea life. Turtles were amazing Really pleasant family day
  • We stumbled upon the Marine Discovery Center the other day and decided to check it out. They have boat and kayak tour along the Indian River Lagoon. If you have little ones, they also have Camps and Field Trips too. The staff was very informative about the local marine life and we learned more then we expected too that day. So next time you are at the beach and you want to get away from the crowds and heat, check out Marine Discovery Center.
  • Dolphin Discovery Tour took us along the Indian River Lagoon. Saw tons of dolphins!
