The Exploration Center and Aquarium
Our interactive marine science center is home to more than 40 species from Narragansett Bay and Rhode Island waters. Our sustainable collection of organisms consists of rescued animals, juveniles in our nursery program, and animals in our breeding program. With the exception of our rescued animals, every specimen is released back into Rhode Island waters.
Our center houses three touch tanks and dozens of exhibits to get you up close and personal with little skates, dogfish sharks, urchins, crabs and lobsters, seahorses, turtles, and so much more! Our team of highly trained staff, interns and volunteers are always available to answer all of your questions and show you the wonders of Narragansett Bay!

Please note that…
- Masks are required when visiting the Exploration Center and Aquarium. (We can provide you with a mask if you forget one!)
- Our current facility capacity is 30 guests. If we are at capacity at the time of your arrival, you will be welcomed into the center as soon as the numbers allow!
