VYPG Family Day Outing
The VYPG invites you and your family to a family day outing at the
Marine Discovery Center on October 24th from 11am-2pm
$20 per person (children are free)
Event includes choice of:
Guided Boat Tour
Our Island Adventure Boat Tour gives adults and children alike a glimpse of what it’s like to attend our hands-on, feet-wet camps! Guests on this 3 hour adventure experience an interactive eco-tour aboard our boat, The Discovery, and explore one of the many islands of the Indian River Lagoon.
Certified Florida Coastal Naturalists lead the way and help guests identify the
many creatures they find with dip and seine nets.
Fish, conchs, sea stars, horseshoe crabs, and many others abound on these islands and sandbars!
Guided Kayak Tour
(Limited to 10 people)
Come and kayak miles of winding backwater, mangroves and untouched surroundings . . . a paddle on the Indian River Lagoon calls for an adventure that suits kayakers from novice to expert.
Join Marine Discovery Center for a fascinating kayak trip with nature interpretation from a Florida Naturalist. Paddle around and over oyster beds and watch for the many birds that inhabit the area such as osprey, cormorants, herons and egrets. It is easy to see distinctive salt marsh along the creek, sea oxeye daisy, sea purslane, saltwort, glasswort, and spartina grass are prevalent.
Paddling a kayak offers the best chance to move silently on our waters and learn about the importance of caring for this “cradle of the ocean”
