Be a Fish Keeper for the Day

Be a Fish Keeper for the Day

An opportunity for marine enthusiasts of all ages to join Blue Reef’s team of aquarists at our award-winning attraction and enjoy an unforgettable day out.

The programme includes an in-depth tour of the aquarium in the company of a senior aquarist who will share their expert knowledge of the creatures they care for including tropical sharks, rays, seahorses, otters and octopus.

There will also be the chance to go behind the scenes of the aquarium, help prepare lunch for the fish and join in some of the specialist work required to care for the creatures.

The package also includes a year’s free membership to Blue Reef, a marine-themed goodie bag, guidebook, certificate, lunch and refreshments throughout the day.
