This program is perfect for children and teens who are itching to get behind the scenes and learn how to look after our amazing animals.
This fully guided day offers exclusive behind the scenes access that enables them to face their fears and gain knowledge about the ocean and its inhabitants.

Participants will learn about the animals with a take home workbook and help their Aquarist/zoo keeper leader carry out some important aquarium jobs.
Of course they will need to bring their swimmers and towels as they will also participate in a Shark Encounter with their guide.
