“Great place to visit on Tybee”

Nice place to visit with nice oceanic displays with turtles and and interesting touch tank. I was a nice place to spend time and I appreciate all the conservation work they do

“Great family place to visit”

If there were 6 stars. It would get all six. Beautiful, relatively new marine science center, well staffed with both paid, volunteer and university student assistance. Very responsive to any question...

Amazing! Probably our favorite place this past trip. We loved seeing the sea turtles, terrapins, and other various creatures. Loved supporting this place!

Kinda disappointed it was small! Most animals were not out or not on display it's pricey per person we were 8 ppl so almost $100 to not see all that much!...

Fantastic it's small but a much needed marine attraction. They've done a great job ! I'll be back again
