“Explore Your Waters!” is the slogan at the Marine Discovery Center.  The Center offers a marine-themed gift shop, wonderful tours and an interactive exhibit for all ages.  Visitors can explore the new facility featuring touch tanks, habitats and local wildlife, including horseshoe crabs, hermit crabs, sports fish and much more.  For an up close experience with New Smyrna’s aquatic wildlife, reserve a seat on a Dolphin Discovery Tour or Kayak among the tropical mangroves with a certified Florida Coastal Naturalist.  These 2 hour adventures along the Indian River Lagoon focus on Bottlenose Dolphins, sea birds and include hands on learning experiences with living creatures such as oysters, barnacles, snails, and hermit crabs.  Kayak rentals with trail maps are also available at the Center.   
The Marine Discovery Center also offers a variety of “hands-on and feet-wet” adventure camps for children 4-16 years old.  The camps are offered throughout the year during school holidays, breaks and of course during the summer!  Camp  activities vary with age and camp but may include island explorations aboard our 40-passenger floating classroom, lab investigations, arts and crafts, kayaking, fishing, snorkeling, SCUBA Diving, surfing and much more!
  We highly recommend this wonderful marine learning center for all guests visiting the New Smyrna Beach area.
