Tybee Island Marine Science Center
Welcome to the Tybee Island Marine Science Center, the local education and research facility that provides educational beach and marsh treks, as well as dolphin encounters and floating classroom learning opportunities.
A visit to this science center will teach your group all about marine conservation, coastal rehab, rescue, and response programs, and marsh ecology. During your group or school visit, you will first choose a 60-minute program to attend, your options being Beach Walk, Jelly Jive, Marsh Talk, Turtle Talk, or Whale Tale. Afterward, you will choose a 30-minute beach activity, such as seining or sand sifting. You will end your visit with a tour of the Coastal Gallery, a truly ‘authentic coastal experience’.
If you would like, you can add on a lesson in the Floating Classrooms, your options here being Eco Adventure, Dolphin Discovery, or Savannah River Experience.
