Palm Beach and the Treasure Coast Sights

Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center

Updated 05/12/2014

Fodor's Review

This hydroland is the place to go for an interactive marine experience and live the center's mission "to inspire environmental stewardship of Florida'scoastal ecosystems through education and research." Petting and feeding stingrays can be done at various times; in the morning, a sea turtle program introduces you to three full-time residents. Make sure to catch the "feeding frenzy" when keepers toss food into the 750,000-gallon lagoon tank and sharks, tarpon, and snook

swarm the surface. Join a 1-mile guided walk through the coastal hardwood hammock and mangrove swamp habitats, or explore the trails on your own—you may see a dolphin or manatee swim by.
