Join our team of aquarists and bring out your inner marine enthusiast, as you take part in an experience that you certainly won’t forget.
Take a behind-the-scenes tour of the aquarium and dive deep into the wonders of the ocean and discover the mysteries of the deep blue sea. You’ll be joined by a senior aquarist who will share their expert knowledge of the fascinating creatures they care for and the wonderful creatures you’ll meet. These include tropical sharks (how jawsome?!), rays, red-bellied piranha, otters, and jellyfish.
Get your kitchen skills at the ready because you’ll even be helping to prepare lunch for the fishes and take part in specialist work required to care for the creatures. If that isn’t enough, then you’ll also be given a year’s free membership to Blue Reef, and a marine-themed goodie bag.
