Share the ocean joy
Our Gift Shop offers fun and memorable aquatic-themed gifts for all ages. As a non-profit organization, your purchases directly fund our education, conservation and research initiatives.
You can shop in person, on-line, or order by phone, fax, or mail. Whichever you choose, our customer service team is ready to help, and happy to answer any questions to ensure you're entirely satisfied.
The products we sell in our Gift Shop live complex lives; they start as raw materials that are manufactured into products, they are packaged and transported, and then used until they meet their end of life. When we buy products for our Gift Shop, we look at all of these stages and prioritize characteristics that will minimize the product’s lifetime environmental impact, ensuring that guests have earth-friendly choices. Both nurdles – or plastic beads commonly found in stuffed animals to keep them upright – and plastic hooks are often found on our shorelines. So we offer stuffed animals that are nurdle-free and hung by cotton loops rather than plastic hooks. We also offer sustainable product lines, including natural rubber bath toys and bamboo-based dishware for children, an extensive line of sustainable alternatives to everyday items, such as reusable straws, bottles and utensils, as well as crafted items from some of our favourite locals artists, jewelry made of marine debris, and more!
