Terrific two hours in Jupiter location. Great place to take out of town guests, take about an hour, quick side activity while in town. Couple this with the Jupiter Light house or a half day paddle board tour. The right price!!

This place is great for kids, you can touch the sea urchins and learn all about the animals! The kids love it and so do the adults!

Too many kids! :) We were two adults who had gone to see if Burt Reynolds Island was worth doing anything on. We stopped in to check it out. Interesting little exhibits, but not exciting.

The River Center has some nice indoor exhibits but the thing I like best is their escorted kayak tours. We were able to get out of our kayaks and wade in the water to view underwater marine life up close and personal.

We took 3 children under 6. They loved the touch tank and the volunteers were very nice. It's a great way to spend 1 hour with kids out of the heat.
