Love is in the air, the sea, and the National Marine Life Center!


February is a month dedicated to love, what better way to show your love for marine life than visiting the National Marine Life Center this February vacation week!

We will be running events all week long kicking off with Join us For the Love of Turtles on Saturday, Feb. 16!our Open House “For the Love of Turtles” on Saturday, February 16th from 10 AM to 2 PM. Come by with your kids to make a marine animal valentine, play games, make arts and crafts and even meet our sea turtle patients in our hospital! It’s only $5 per person (free for members), and all entry fees go to help the turtles.

Although we love them, we can’t give all of our love to the sea turtles, each day from 11 AM to 4 PM we will be featuring a new marine animal. Some of the daily activities include the Little Flippers Club (daily at 11 AM), Marine Animal Medical Mystery (daily at 1 PM), Patient Updates (daily at 12, 2, & 4 PM), and Marine Animal Exploration (daily at 3 PM). Each day we’ll feature a different theme, so we hope to see you often throughout the week. For more information about each of these programs, including cost (if any) and suggested age levels, please see the calendar on the sidebar of our website.

Please join us and show your love for marine life at The National Marine Life Center!

Townsend hopes you'll be his Valentine!
