Marine Discovery Center Announces Reopening and Events

Marine Discovery Center Reopens to the Public on May 18

Due to COVID 19, Marine Discovery Center (MDC) has taken precautionary steps to ensure the safety of our guests, staff and volunteers. These steps include the following:

  • Limiting tours to 10 guests
  • Increased sanitation of all high touch areas (boat, kayaks, outdoor seating areas, and indoor facilities
  • Temperature checks for staff
  • Face Masks: All guests are required to bring face masks. MDC currently does not have any masks for purchase in the gift shop but are planning to have some in stock in the near future. The need to wear face masks is outlined below…
  • Outdoors: All guests and MDC staff/volunteers will wear face masks when social distancing of less than 6-feet is unavoidable. The need to wear a face mask will be minimal when outdoors and will be at the discretion of MDC staff.
  • Indoors: All guests and MDC staff/volunteers are required to wear face masks when in common areas such as restrooms, gift shop, lobby and exhibit space.


During the month of May MDC will be operating on a weekday-only schedule from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
