Discover Dolphins

While Florida's beaches and the animals that call them home are an important part of its tourism industry, they're also a key part of its natural ecosystem. Unlike other tours and marine centers, the Marine Discovery Center is dedicated to the conservation of the local ecosystem and everything that lives in it, so visitors can take their dolphin tours or visit their touch tanks knowing that no animals are being mistreated or having their habitats damaged. On the contrary, the center even has a sea turtle hospital that visitors can tour and see turtles being patched up. Located less than five minutes from our New Smyrna Beach hotel, the center also offers Island Adventure tours of the Indian River Lagoon, which focuses on fun and conservation education, so you can have a great time and know you made a choice good for you and for the beautiful nature of Florida.

Address: 520 Barracuda Boulevard, New Smyrna Beach
