  • They'll be moving to a better location soon, so information about it may change. They've got a touch pool, lots of information about their fish and turtles, and several live exhibits. When we were there, a guide had the corn snake out of the cage and was entertaining the children with it. We had a great time! It costs $5 per person as of June 2017, age 4 and under are free. This gets you entrance all day, and free "behind the scenes" tours three times a day. Definitely recommend it while you're in Tybee!
  • Place is small, but has lots of neat species. Our kids loved it. The touch pool was really neat. The staff were friendly. Gift shop had quite a bit to choose from at decent prices. The kids loved seeing the baby gator and petting the snakes.
  • The tanks were well-kept but not fully stocked on account of last October's hurricane, so that is to be expected. The staff was exceptionally friendly and the educator that gave us a tour, Andrea, was both knowledgeable and passionate about what the Tybee Island Marine Science Center does. It's well worth the price of admission with or without the guided tour, but of course you will feel you got the most out of your money if you get a guided tour. Highly recommend checking it out!
  • They four small sized rooms with tank displays and an area to touch the local sea creatures. It has a gift shop with plenty to choose from and it is decently priced. $5 entry fee. Staff was friendly. Great for small children.
  • Nice little place for a learning experience. Very small and tight. Kids had fun looking at the fish and wildlife. 5 dollars for anyone over 4.
