Harbor Branch is internationally known for its ship and submersible
operations and research in marine science, biomedical marine research,
aquaculture, and ocean engineering. Harbor Branch borders Indian River
Lagoon, the estuary with the highest diversity in the United States. The
proximity of the lagoon facilitates activities such as seining, sieving,
snorkeling, and boat trips that provide students exposure to a variety of
local and coastal habitats, including seagrass meadows, mangrove forests,
salt marshes, intertidal mudflats, sandy shores, beach communities, and
nearshore reefs. Other habitats, including the Florida Everglades and the
Florida Keys reef tract, are less than half a day's drive.
