If, by chance, you happen to find yourselves in Woods Hole while you’re vacationing on Cape Cod – perhaps you have some time to kill while waiting for the ferry to Martha’s Vineyard – plan on spending some time at the Woods Hole Science Aquarium. It’s a small, public aquarium with approximately 140 species of marine animals. There are several ‘touch tanks’ which allow you and your children to get up close and personal with the creatures. Out front is the well-known seal tank – the seals have been injured and can’t be released back into the sea – where feeding time will find the expressive mammals putting on quite the show as they impatiently wait for the day’s catch.
