Discover Wellington's marine life without getting your feet wet at Island Bay Marine Education Centre. The laboratory has indoor and outdoor tanks enabling you to learn about, see and touch the marine wildlife in a safe learning environment. Have the kids pick up the spider starfish (yes like it sounds: long black legs and black body), feel the sea cucumber and handle a hermit crab. Admire the large array of seahorses the laboratory breeds. The crayfish are abundant too, although not for eating. Prior bookings have to be made in case of group visits.
