NMLC Tree Theme: Shining Stars & Sparkling Seas

A wish upon a star… the National Marine Life Center’s Shining Stars & Sparkling Seas holiday tree is adorned with glass ornaments and sea themed animals in brilliant blues and greens reminiscent of soothing ocean breezes. It includes gifts both sparkly and nautical to accommodate everyone on your list!

·         Make memories with two island getaway packages:  10 Nights luxurious accommodations at the Palm Island Resort & Spa, the Grenadines, and 9 Nights of luxurious beachfront accommodation at the St. James’s Club & Villas, Antigua. (Vacations do not include airfare or daily all-inclusive activity fees.)

·         Whether you’re watching vacation videos or relaxing to a movie, you’ll enjoy the experience more on a 50” Samsung UHD TV!

·         Amazon Echo Dot or Google Home Mini? There’s no need to choose. Both are included with this tree.

·         Closer to home you will enjoy New England hotel accommodations, ski & water park packages, museum and sport experiences, tours, and restaurants. 

·         Beautiful jewelry to adorn him and her, and even gifts for Fido!

·         Nautical décor and original art for your seaside cottage, and beach gear in which to recover from all the fun!

·         Best of all, an Ultimate Adoption Package from NMLC to name a recovering sea turtle and bring your family for a behind the scenes tour.

Each ticket purchased helps pay for a dose of a recovering sea turtle’s medication, getting it that much closer to a return to the sea.
