Ellen was a fantastic guide and it was so much fun learning all about the creatures - and even touching them! It really is a entertaining experience for any age. My husband and I highly recommend and would go back to visit every time we are in Hampton Beach! Ellen has extensive knowledge and can answer any question! Stop by this great oceanarium!

We had a wonderful time at Explore the Ocean World Oceanarium! Ellen was soooo knowledgeable and accommodating. We arrived around 10:30 and she was a bit busy but asked if we could come back, so we arranged to be there around 2:30 and it was great. (Just be understanding, she is a one women show!) The presentation was much more than we anticipated, and she has so many sea animals! My 5 and 9 years old nieces and I loved it, and it was a great way to spend an hour on a grey day when you can't go swimming. Highly recommend Ellen and the Explore the Ocean World Oceanarium :)

Thank you all for being so understanding! You came on the busiest day of the summer which was exacerbated by the covid entrance restrictions. Thank you for returning!

We spent about 1 1/2 hrs at the Oceanarium with our 3 children, ages 6, 6 and 9. Ellen was wonderful with the children and kept everyone, adults included, engaged and entertained. We were able to touch and learn about different crustaceans and creatures from the sea that were kept in touch tanks. We learned about and handled horseshoe crabs, spiny crabs, lobster, urchin, etc. There were also neat displays and props for whales and sharks which were very interesting. If you are in the area and are looking for something educational/fun, this is the place! Ellen has an extensive knowledge of the marine wildlife and she is great with children. What a great place to visit!!

UNDOUBTEDLY THE BEST $24 I've ever spent at Hampton Beach! My two grandchildren, 6 and 11, were thrilled to touch and hold all of the sea life that Ellen displayed and taught them about. Ellen is a marine biologist and is absolutely wonderful with the kids. Following Covid guidelines , we ALL learned so much and had a great time. Days later, my grandson still talks about how the clam he was holding squirted water at Ellen. And, I was so happy to have her reinforce and explain to the children how their tide pooling treasures need to be put back into the cold ocean water right away. Highly recommend you visit!!!
