Visit Us

We are located at the Gumbo Limbo Environmental Complex in Boca Raton, Florida. You can witness science in action at the FAU Marine Science Lab by visiting our unique visitors’ gallery. The visitors’ gallery offers guests a bird’s eye view of our research facility where you may see marine animals such as sea turtles, sharks, or rays and marine plant studies in progress. You also can also interact with the students and professors who are working in the lab to learn more about the kinds of things we are trying to discover through our research and how we take care of the animals we are studying.

We encourage inquisitive minds of all ages to come and discover more about marine animals, plants, and the environment with us.
