Museum open Weds–Mon, Sea Center on Stearns Wharf open daily; both 10:00 AM–5:00 PM

Wet Deck


Visit the Wet Deck to experience the thrill of discovery on a marine research vessel. Every trip to the Wet Deck is different, as we observe the dynamic environment. 

Gather around the Moon Pool to help Sea Center naturalists use oceanographic tools to measure conditions in the water. Get to know local marine life in its astonishing diversity, looking up close at the tiny organisms that play big roles in the ecosystem. While adults and older children investigate with scientific tools, little ones can search for shells in the sand and discover other surprises at kid height.
