Egan Maritime Institute presents Maritime Day at the Shipwreck & Lifesaving Museum. Curious minds of all ages are invited to drop by the Museum for free, family-friendly activities.

The day will feature Nanpuppet's performance, free educational tours, maritime-themed activities and crafts, and a few special visitors. Plus! Island Kitchen will be selling yummy treats all afternoon long.

There is LIMITED Parking at the Museum. We highly recommend all attendees ride their bikes, take the NRTA Wave, or hop on our shipwreck shuttle to the museum.
