Save the Bay


The Save the Bay Exploration Center is host to over 140 sea creatures that call Narragansett Bay their home. Visitors can experience close encounters with marine life including crabs, starfish, sea cucumbers, anemone, whelks, horseshoe crabs, dogfish sharks, and skates in the 16 interactive displays and touch tanks. The center offers story times, feeding times, and other educational family activities. “It’s a perfect family-friendly location to spend time interacting with marine life found in the bay,” center director Adam Kavarsky said.
