It has many exibits and activities that the whole family can enjoy! And its educational too! You can feed stingrays,
touch sea cucumbers, watch sharks up close and much, much more!

Coki Beach offers great snorkeling opportunities - lots of interesting coral inhabitants close to the beach.
Sapphire Beach and Secret Harbor are also big favorites.
The Butterfly Farm
is one of my favorites places! They have an enclosed area with many different species of tropical
butterflies from around the world as well as an outside butterfly garden to help attract native butterflies to
the area. It is located right on the Cruise Ship Dock, Havensight Mall.
