School Field Trips

 

 

 

For the safety of the children, staff and other guests, all regular COVID-19 health and safety measures will be in place during fieldtrips. Reservations must be made in advance.

 

Our field trips are FINtastic! Combine age appropriate STEM based hands-on learning with educational talks and up close animal encounters! During your interactive visit students will gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of the earth's oceans and the creatures that inhabit them. We aim to create a passion for conservation and sustainability.
