As soon as you enter the front office you are greeted by several young people who are interning here. After purchasing your tickets you are given a schedule of times for the different events...
Our first event was the Discovery Pool where they showed you different sea critters and told you what they were. You could hold them if you wanted to but we left that to the kids...

After the Lobster Hatchery it was off to the Thomas Bay Marsh Nature Walk where we learned about the plant vegetation and wildlife. Our guide took us through explainingwhy the marsh exist and how the plants and wildlife partake in that. It was a great time and we really enjoyed all the information we learned.
Last but not least was our one on one chat with Oceanarium director & owner David Mills. David relishes his role of teacher and enjoys taking his time to explain the Oceanarium and the life of a Fisherman/ Lobster career. He is an outstanding man and very interesting talk to. This is his passion and you can hear his love for it in his chat.
It was a great day and we really enjoyed our time at the Oceanarium ~
