Before we went in, we checked out the yellow submarine.

This wonderful place had tons of hands on experiences for us to enjoy. Like this incredible touch tank.

Those star fish are holding hands. 🙂 Look at those bright green anemones and you can see the bright orange sea cucumbers too!

Sea Urchins are SO cool, they hug your finger with their spikes when you touch them.

The star fish were HUGE!

After all of that, we went forward and did some interactive stuff.


They had a whole exhibit about the sea lions and harbor seals. Mirah was THRILLED, and asked to get her picture taken with the murals.

There was a few baby sting rays. I love then so much, the light was so inside looking.

These little sea grass guys.

The last animal we got to see was this octopus, who only had seven legs. He was hypnotic to watch.

After the Science Center, we went to the New Port Cafe.


The grown ups all got the fish and chips, Mirah got a soup and salad, Lucas insisted on the stuffed french toast, and refused to eat it.

These cuties.





After lunch we went to the old town area of New Port, and checked out the sea lions.
