Get Into Your Sanctuary

As a travel destination, few places on the planet can compete with the diversity of the National Marine Sanctuary System. The majority of national marine sanctuaries' waters are open for sustainable recreation. During the first weekend in August, NOAA’s Office of National Marine Sanctuaries annually hosts “Get Into Your Sanctuary” celebrations to raise awareness about the value of our national marine sanctuaries as iconic destinations for responsible recreation. Whether you're already an avid outdoors person looking for a new adventure or you've never been kayaking, fishing, or taken advantage of our amazing underwater parks, Get Into Your Sanctuary is for YOU!
