Blue Ocean Society

In the heart of Hampton Beach, there’s a place where you can learn about the ocean and take action to protect marine life. Our Blue Ocean Discovery Center has several tanks that exhibit local marine invertebrates and algae, and a touch tank where you can learn about different species and how to safely handle them. Our knowledgeable educators will share fun facts about the species and lead you in hands-on activities and investigations! You can also explore our maritime history exhibit, learn about whale research, find out the effects of climate change on the Gulf of Maine and participate in a beach cleanup!
