Career Explorers

Do you want to be a marine biologist?

Then this program is for you! In this class we will get an inside look into some of the fascinating careers in marine science. Join us as we tour behind the scenes to observe the work the marine scientists do here at the Aquarium of the Pacific. How do we take care of the fish? How do we design and clean their exhibits? How do we educate our guests about marine conservation? Find out in this exciting program!

During this program your group will:

  • Learn about the variety of marine science careers in an interactive game show
  • Touch animals in our private classroom touch pool
  • Take a guided behind the scenes tour to see how our staff cares for our animals
  • Roll up your sleeves and help our animal care staff feed some Aquarium animals!*
