LEARN WITH SEA LIFE!
We have something fun and inspirational for all ages!
In addition to our amazing aquarium experience, we work closely with schools to develop information that engages and inspires young people. Self-Guided Tours and Workshops for schools are available and we give daily creature presentations.
From Shark Mission to the Art Aquarium, our multimedia experiences are designed to fire the minds of visitors who want to dive deeper into the world of the marine creatures they meet.
If you’re hungry for more, we offer Behind the Scenes Tours where our expert staff will fill you in on the daily diet of sharks, and the breeding habits of seahorses!
Throughout the year, we host a program of fun educational events, like Turtle Fest and Shark Week, to raise awareness of marine conservation issues.
