About this activity

The Florida Oceanographic Society is 57 acres of nature center filled with educational experiences for the kids, that are also fun and fascinating too!

Love the ocean? It's time to explore it then!

A visit to the Florida Oceanographic Society offers a number of experiences and activities for the entire family. You can take to nature and just enjoy their nature trails, or check out their 750,000-gallon Game Fishing Lagoon,.

Younger kids will love the Children's Activity Pavilion, or they can actually touch rays with their own hands at he Sea Star Touch Tank Pavilion, always a big hit with kids. Here, they can enjoy a gentle hands on experience with some of the exhibits

It's always a good idea to stop at the Frances Langford Visitors Center too, where you can ask questions, find out timings for programs and plan your day.

There are often a number of programs across the day which are included in your admission, including Stingray Feeding, Sea Turtle Program, or Gamefish Feeding.

Guided Nature Trail walks are available but call ahead for details. 

With it's mangrove swamp communities and coastal hardwood hammocks, the Florida Oceanographic really is an excellent opportunity for educating the family on these unique creatures and environments.
