The mysterious Savannah lobster

Recently our family was enjoying a beautiful, sunny day by hiking on the nature trail behind the Skidaway Island Aquarium. We stopped for a time to explore a marshy area where the kids tried to catch fiddler crabs and look at shells. My 7-year-old son was especially happy to catch the little crabs, admire them, and send them on their way.

The South Carolina Aquarium in Charleston is a wonderful family adventure about two and a half hours north of Savannah. Our family made the drive this weekend to see the collection of Carolinian critters.

On Saturday our family celebrated World Oceans Day at the UGA Aquarium on Skidaway Island. Admission was free for the day, and there were crafts, a treasure hunt, and story times for the kids.

The aquarium debuted the new exhibit, “Sea Jellies of the Georgia Coast,” which currently features locally caught comb jellies. The display is mesmerizing in a giant lava lamp sort of way with slowly changing colors showing off the little jellies.

Small Aquarium is a Big Hit

Our family visited the Skidaway Island Aquarium recently - again. We've been to the South Carolina Aquarium in Charleston and the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, both quite impressive, but my kids love the Skidaway Aquarium for two main reasons: turtles and hermit crabs.
