Florida Oceanographic Society’s 57-acre Coastal Center on Hutchinson Island is home to sea turtles, nurse sharks, local gamefish, and a number of invertebrates. Daily educational programs allow visitors to interact with stingrays, see a sea turtle up-close, and witness a feeding frenzy in our 750,000-gallon Gamefish Lagoon. Visitors can explore exhibits in both the Frances Langford Visitor Center and the Children’s Pavilion, or take a stroll through the Butterfly Garden or down the Nature Trail that leads to the Indian River Lagoon. This is all while learning about Florida’s unique coastal ecosystems and how to best protect and preserve them.
