Seine-sational Fun!

At Myrtle Beach State Park


Become a marine biologist as you pull a seine net through the surf zone. We will discover and tally all sorts of fish, crabs, and other critters. You must register online. Program is $5 per person and includes a wristband which enables you to pull the net and release any critters participants catch! Wristbands are only required for those who want to pull the net and release animals. Since we are at the beach and in the ocean, kids 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Appropriate for ages 5 to 105- all ages can help pull a net in the shallow water!
