Features of the program include an outdoor touch tank, where visitors can experience a never - ending variety of local marine life; an out - door observation platform for viewing our captive population of harp seals; and marine interpreters (MUN summer students) to answer questions and explain current research initiatives at the facility.
Operation time: 10am-5pm daily
No cost but a donation box is available.
There are no indoor tours of the Ocean Sciences Centre facilities.

Since 1988 the Ocean Sciences Centre has organized and played a continuous role in public awareness in marine sciences through its Marine Public Education Program. Each summer we invite visitors of all ages to our outside touch tank and Seal Facility where student interpreters discuss research conducted at the OSC, marine mammal and sealing issues, and introduce the curious to a variety of native sea creatures.
