DescriptionWith its waterfront location ideally located on Easton's Beach in Newport, the Save The Bay Exploration Center and Aquarium is one of Newport's few family-friendly downtown activities. Whether you're a local or just visiting the Newport area, you'll enjoy this interactive marine science center, with its three touch tanks and aquarium exhibits featuring more than 140 species from Narragansett Bay. Adults and children alike can touch smooth dogfish sharks, skates and horseshoe crabs, and even hold sea urchins, spider crabs, hermit crabs and more. Exhibits include rare lobsters, octopus, eels, terrapins and turtles, a model of the Narragansett Bay ecosystem, and much more. And an activity center features hands-on crafts for kids centered around a monthly theme. And, with Newport's only ocean-facing beach just outside our front door, you can continue the beachcombing experience after your visit.
