  • 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.
  • I was a seasonal for the National Park Service for years and loved it. This place, however, is another ball game. In my opinion, I noticed an unprofessional attitude toward employees and unsafe conditions. There is also an unwillingness on their part to consider any constructive suggestions for improvement, in my experience. Nice place to visit but if were you I would think twice about working there.
  • I had a great day on the kajak tour. They do an enormous job to protect and maintain local environment!
