The Ostego Bay Foundation Marine Science Center offers a 3-Hour Guided Tour. The tour includes an interpretive presentation by a local historian and Florida Master Naturalist on the evolution of the San Carlos Commercial Fishing Industry, the discovery of the Florida Pink Shrimp and todays challenges to the fishing industry.
