The center is a non-profit marine science education facility that offers hands on programs for schools and other groups, as well as the general public. The Tybee Island Marine Science Center also manages the very important Tybee Sea Turtle Project, which monitors loggerhead sea turtle activities on Tybee! So really, what better reason is there to get your paddle on?
