The Marine Discovery Centre encompasses a multitude of interactive activities appropriate for a wide range of ages. In addition to a full time Marine Scientist and Cultural Educator, our volunteers are a wealth of knowledge and come from a wide variety of backgrounds including teaching, marine science, and environmental science just to name a few.
