This was one of the best things we did while we stayed at Hampton Beach as a family. The price was very reasonable, the biologist who lead the talk was friendly, knowledgeable and great with kids, and the amount of experience they pack into a very small space is incredible. You get to touch several different kinds of lobsters and crabs (we saw one who had molted the previous day and saw both his old covering and what he looked like as he developed his new one!). Got to touch a couple of different shark jaws and a whale rib; they have a megladon tooth on display! There is much, much more on display, both living and deceased. My wife and I and our kids (10 and 6) all leaned a lot, had fun and left with a better understanding and respect of the local ecosystem.

The single drawback to this is the size of the space. It is well used and designed to maximize the experience, but during the pandemic, we felt like it almost had too many people in such a limited area. You could not social distance at all, though most people were wearing masks and there is a warning before you go in that distancing is not possible, so fair enough.

I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting HB. It is an hour well spent. My family gives the Ocenarium eight thumbs up!

Two years ago we visited the New England Aquarium, as amazing as that place is it lacked a guided tour by an actual marine biologist. Reading placards by the tanks is just not the same. The oceanarium is run by an actual marine biologist, a true scientist! Her spirit and charm reminds me of the Kratt Brother’s! Her talk was interesting, informative and educational. Definitely don’t judge a book by its cover! Go check it out, it is definitely worth your time!

Looking for activities to enjoy our time spent in Hampton I saw how highly rated this little Oceanarium was. We stopped in and met the lovely marine biologist, Ellen, who was an absolute charm and highly knowledgeable about the local sea life. I wasn’t expecting much when we got inside, but after the tour and being able to hold the crustaceans I was convinced. My girlfriend had a fantastic time here. Perfect for all ages, and very reasonably priced!

Didn't really think I would like this especially when we saw the size of the room. It was just a tiny cubicle with the small fishes and fossil remains. We changed our minds as we listened to Ellen, the marine biologist in charge of the exhibition. We ended up enjoying it quite a bit (and we are not little children).
Only why not senior discounts ($8 a bit steep) and why no credit cards accepted. Strange.

Jack, thank you for the review. I would like to explain about the price. I have never taken a salary for my talks during the summer. I subsidize the cost with the talks that I do in the schools during the school year. For the past two years I have not been into the schools due to covid. The $8 charge is the lowest I can charge and still pay my bills. As to accepting credit cards, for a small business like mine the cost of connecting to the credit card companies would increase the cost of my entrance fee for everyone. We also do not have any internet connection or even relieable phone service in the summer, which makes it extremely difficult to use any of the less expensive credit card companies. My goal is for everyone to enjoy a personal experience and leave with a better understanding of our ocean ecosystem. I'm glad that you enjoyed your experience!

We took our 2 yr old grandson and we were pleasantly surprised. He loved the pouch tank. We loved it

I was hesitant to do this as I thought it was only for young children, and I was very happy to be wrong. The operation is run by a marine biologist who is very active in her profession. She is enthusiastic and upbeat. Our whole family, kids and adults alike, very much enjoyed this experience. Great for anyone older than 3 and for people without children. Very inexpensive and well worth it.

Our children really enjoyed their experience. We were guided by a very knowledgeable biologist and we were able to pet and hold lots of local sea creatures. This is also one of the few things to do in Hampton should there be a rainy day, but we enjoyed it so much we would do it again, rain or sunshine.

Such a hidden gem! My brother and his wife wanted to give their two year old an experience with ocean life and she got it! Ellen, the owner, gave us an informative tour of the facility, making it interesting for a 2 year old and the adults in our group. My niece was able to touch lobsters, crabs, a sea cucumber and other little sea creatures! If you are on Hampton Beach, stop in for an educationally fun experience.

This place is terrific! Ellen is clearly passionate and knowledgeable about marine life. We brought our 2-year-old who touches everything and loses interest quickly but Ellen is quick to change it up and keep it exciting. The personalized attention (we were the only family there for this tour) was perfect. We got to ask questions and learn the weirdest stuff about marine biology and behavior. We highly recommend this learning experience.
