We had an absolutely amazing week at Marine Science Camp! Greg Landry from College Prep Science went above and beyond to make every single day better than the last. It was a week full of making memories, new friends and learning more than we’d ever imagined!

Marine Science Camp: Day 5
Our last full day of Marine Biology Camp was so much fun!
We started the day eating breakfast outside at Pirates, overlooking the ocean. They had all sorts of yummy food: biscuits and gravy, waffles, hash browns, sausage, eggs, bacon, toasts…you name it!
Then we headed to the Dauphin Island Sea Lab Aquarium.
The kids had so much fun learning all about the different ocean life. We spent hours just wandering around, taking notes in their journals, talking to the employees and learning at their own pace.
After that, we went to Dockside for lunch.
They offer the yummiest fresh seafood but if you’re not very brave (like me!) there’s always chicken strips. 😉
We went back to the aquarium and hung out at the touch tank.
The kids got to pet sharks, stingrays and more! It was really neat to feel the smooth animals and watch them glide around in the shallow pool.
Then we grabbed some ice cream and went shopping for souvenirs. Most of the girls brought WAY more than enough money! This was the only time all week that we needed money for anything so the kids who brought hundreds of dollars, didn’t mind blowing it. As for me, I grabbed a T-shirt and hat for under $20! There were plenty of shirts and souvenirs for under $20: magnets, hats, pocket knives, coffee cups, picture frames, etc. The hoodies were a bit pricey (around $40) but that’s the same price you’d pay for a hoodie anywhere.
We were planning to ride the ferry to Fort Morgan but it was too windy so we explored Fort Gaines instead.
From the lookout towers to the bathrooms, this was great fun! The girls loved crawling through the narrow hallways.
On our way back to the beach house, we grabbed some fresh shrimp for dinner. Yum yum!
We had a great week at Marine Science Camp but by day 5, I was ready to be home!
Gotta admit, I’m going to miss waking up to the beautiful view every day and all the friends we’ve made. But the rainbow over the ocean on our last day put a big smile on my face!
