“Nice, relaxing dolphin cruise”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Lots of interesting things for kids to learn about our ecosystem, plus a nice relaxing dolphin tour. Worth the small price.

“Great educational facility”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

MDC has nice exhibits and cool gift shop. I volunteer here as often as I can. They have Eco-cruises daily, which I Highly recommend. MDC is dedicated to educating everyone about our lagoon, wildlife and ecosystem. Lots of ways to volunteer here as well.

“Small, But Entertaining”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Prepare to spend anywhere from 10 minutes to half an hour here. Really geared towards children ages 4-teens. Lots of hand on things to look at. They have live crabs in tanks where you can touch and hold. Wish this place would expand, it would be a huge attraction for this small area.

“The other side of New Smyrna!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Most people come here for the beach, but THIS is a side of New Smyrna that is a different world. Mangroves, oyster beds, osprey, manatees, and more... What a beautiful couple of hours we had today, on a comfortable pontoon boat tour! Knowledgable and fun tour guide and captain. My only complaint is that every seat was full, so that I wasn't able to change seats when the sun got to be too much on the side of the boat that I was sitting on - so if you go, make sure that you have sunscreen on!

“Great boat tour!”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

The dolphin boat tour is fantastic. The guides saw manatees right as we were about to launch. The boat followed the manatees so we could all see. Afterward, they began the regular tour. They stopped anytime we wanted to see something and answered all questions. They were very knowledgeable and informative. This is a great way to spend an afternoon in NSB.
