Hello aviators!! You can find the Marine Science Center just south of Daytona Beach in Ponce Inlet. The Marine Science Center offers a wide variety of programs for children and adults throughout the year.

Visitors can observe turtle and seabird rehabilitation in action, if you are lucky you may be able to catch a turtle or bird being released. There are also many fascinating marine exhibits and interactive displays. A great addition has been the Stingray touch pool featuring cownose stingrays, a shark and hermit crabs that you can actually reach in and touch. We had a wonderful time exploring all of the creatures here. You can also participate in a classroom lab, walk through beautiful nature trails, climb an observation tower for a spectacular view, and visit a unique gift shop. I love the gift shop as we always find something educational to buy.
