Blue Ocean Discovery Center Group Visits

Do you have a group of budding marine biologists, or are you visiting the beach for a class, group or camp outing?  Join us at Hampton Beach to explore our touch tank, learn about local marine life, and do a beach cleanup!

Our Blue Ocean Discovery Center can accommodate small groups of about 20 visitors at one time. Visitors can explore our touch tanks with our knowledgeable educators, learn about the biology and behavior of local whales, investigate the impacts of climate change on the Gulf of Maine, and learn about fishing through our maritime artifact display. You can also do hands-on activities as a scavenger hunt or a beach cleanup right outside our door on Hampton Beach!
