  • Great place. Affordable, fun and beautiful. $22 for my whole family of six and that got us free beach parking (regularly $10). Tons of stuff to touch and learn. I couldn't get the kids out if there. Beach was beautiful.
  • This is one place you have to visit when visiting Port Townsend. The town was votes best community in 2015. But the folks here can add to the marine ecology and awareness vital to Port Townsend and the Puget Sound in general. Check out their visiting speaker schedule. they re-open in April. I can't wait.
  • Best 15 minutes of my life
  • Awesome experience at the tide pools. Extending knowledgeable volunteer staff. I had more fun at these tidepools than I did in Monterey aquarium.
  • I went camping near here for a weekend and love the entire area! I also went crabbing off the pier using a ring net and crab snares! If you are into crabbing come to port townsend! It's a lot of fun!
