MarineQuest offers events for all ages, including hands-on activities that will help younger visitors learn about the fascinating marine life in our oceans. Kids can even touch sharks and rays, horseshoe crabs, sea stars, spiny lobsters, and other marine critters commonly found in Florida’s waters. Through the age-old Japanese practice of “gyotaku,” or fish printing, they can create their own artwork. Kids can also have their faces painted, learn how to make marine-related origami such as fish and whales, put together a manatee skeleton, and do much more!
