Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution was the brainchild of J. Seward Johnson, Sr. and Edwin Link. It is a marine study and research facility that is dedicated to the Indian River. The Indian River is a brackish lagoon that is teeming with life. The institution brings to the public the magic of the wildlife that thrives here. With high end technology and knowledge of the lagoon, the institution takes visitors out to experience it. Full-service tours are organized and visitors are taken on a journey to explore and learn about the conservation and protection of the lagoon. The facility also studies the properties and benefits the lagoon can bestow up on its surroundings and what we can take from it without harming it. Call ahead to know more.
