Want something fun to do with the family? Go out and explore at the Seymour Marine Discovery Center! The Marine Discovery has so much to offer! You can take a tour of the center and learn about all the ocean animals that are here in the Monterey Bay! For the little ones in your family there are plenty of things for them to explore in and learn about throughout the center. They can get up close and personal with some of the sea creatures that are here on our coast with their interactive tide pools. Every Sunday they can come to Seaside Crafts and do a hands on activity that they can take home with them!
If you are interested about the wildlife that surrounds the ocean come out to the Younger Lagoon Reserve Tours. This tour is a 90 minute hike of the behind the scenes of the Younger Lagoon where you can see the diverse habitat that calls our Central Coast home, all the way from birds to bobcats. You will get an inside look at what scientists are doing to keep track of all these interesting creatures! Every month the Discovery choses certain Thursdays & Sundays to take people out on these tours!
