Fun Learning About Marine Creatures

Who wouldn't want to learn about all the oddly shaped, bizarrely colored and uniquely behaved creatures in the world's seas? But sitting in a classroom listening to a marine biologist drone on about facts and figures or pouring over a dense tome may not be the most fun way of going about it. I just posted a feature on the best ways to learn about sea life in the best places in the world. Sure, we all have a favorite place to snorkel, sea kayak or dive. But what if you could find the healthiest marine environs where there are such a diverse array of organisms, you wouldn't want to leave? This is the list of those 12 best places. And not only the best waters but also the best tour operators or accommodations at each site that will assist you in the fun learning experience in as eco-friendly a manner as possible. Check out where these 12 places are located and all the interesting organisms that call these waters home.

I went snorkeling recently with my 8 year old and it was amazing to learn about marine life. Thanks for these ideas!

Hi Jennifer, Getting up close to the sea creatures is the best way to learn about them and appreciate them. Glad you enjoyed your snorkel adventure.

This has just made me want to visit New Zealand all the more, I take it the sealife there is similar to Australia?
