Discovery Depot

We are excited to announce that our Discovery Depot is now available for festivals and school visits!  Funded by the Impact100 grant, the Discovery Depot features hands-on, interactive exhibits and touch tanks that bring fun ocean education to the community.  See below for more information and how to book now for a school visit or event!


We’re bringing hands-on, curriculum-based projects from the science station right to your school!

Our highly qualified Santa Rosa County School District educators and enthusiastic students come to your school and set up shop!

Rotating exhibits feature an interactive touch tank, artificial reefs, lionfish, and marine debris.

Each class comes at a designated time to explore the Discovery Depot, led by our staff.

Interactive field trip for each class is 1 hour each. Our gift shop on wheels will be open, and all proceeds from the gift shop go to our non-profit organization.

$5 per student + $150 travel fee (if within 50 miles radius within NBMSS)

Add goody bags for $3 per student!
