Planning Your Visit:

Effective Saturday, March 12, 2022 - Masks are NOT required when visiting the MLC.

Guardians are expected to supervise their minors at all times in the MLC.

We are not currently accepting donations, and there is no admission fee to visit.

Large Groups & Class Visits: Due to the size of our space, all large groups and classes must schedule their visit to the Marine Life Center at least one week in advance of your visit. If your large group arrives without notice, it is unlikely we can accommodate you.
