We have many opportunities for visitors to interact with our animals during Aquarium visits and as part of school and family programs.
During a Visit
Make sure to visit our hands-on areas for kids, like the Edge of the Sea touch tank. You also don't want to miss our live animal presentations and seal trainings. See our daily schedule to make your plans. For an additional cost, you can also add activities like a seal interaction, a behind-the-scenes tour or a whale watch to your visit.
Family Programs and Programs for Children
Volunteering and Internships
For teenagers and adults, volunteering can be a great way to be involved with our animals and learn more about their care. For those interested in careers in the marine sciences, internships can give you great work experience.
School and Community Programs
Every year, the Aquarium provides thousands of kids from schools and community groups hands-on access to Aquarium animals. Community outreach programs with live animals include our popular traveling tidepool exhibit. Live animal programs are available as classroom programs as well.
