Inspire your kids with a full or half day Marine Biologist Program!

Ever wondered what it’s like to work at a cool aquarium like SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast? Well, now your kids have the chance to see what it’s all about. Our Marine Biologist for a Day school holiday activity program takes them behind the scenes to hang out with one of our marine experts!

Not only will you get a full tour of the attraction, including a reserved VIP seat at our very entertaining seal presentation, you will also get an insight into the inner workings of the aquarium by getting a backstage pass to our Staff Only areas and helping out with some of our animal feeding demonstrations.

While parents are welcome to attend the program with their children, we find that our little Marine Biologists thrive even more when given the responsibility of being left alone with our staff for their very own adventure.
