  • Treasure. Pirates. Pieces of Eight. Cannon. And a nice boardwalk overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
  • Great things to see with interesting facts. Over-all informative. Also, Mel Fisher's museum down the road is great as well. Staff was friendly and helpful. Could use more hands-on activities for the kids.
