Marine Biologist for a Day 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!

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.

Drop the kids off at our aquarium for a full or half day program. View the details for each program in the tabs below.
