I went here when I was in elementary school way back when. The staff were knowledgeable and very nice in sharing their knowledge with us. We went on the schooner and it was a very enjoyable experience. I remember learning about the food chain and learning about plankton, even getting to see it. I think this is one place that everyone should visit at least once. It's much better than going to a nearby marine aquarium because you actually get to see animals "live" and not caged in glass.
