Our week-long Ocean Squad activity club is aimed for your 11 to 15 year old Ocean enthusiasts. During half terms we have an exciting opportunity for your teens to join our Ocean Discovery Rangers and become a Junior Marine Biologist for the week! This experience allows you to take part in various hands on activities that are perfect for the budding Ocean Lover! Prices are £130 per child for this unique Ocean experience.

Activities such as Behind the Scenes tours, fun games and workshops, dissections and preparing food for the Aquarium animals help to give young people an idea of what is it like to work in Marine Biology. Other activities allow participants to experience the Ocean and have positive benefits to mental health and wellbeing such as snorkelling, virtual reality, rockpooling, and building bonfires on the beach.

You’ll get to be involved in amazing activities: 
Feeding some of our amazing Aquarium animals.
A special Behind the Scenes Tour, giving you insight into how we run the UK’s largest Aquarium.
Science Experiments in our lab.
Rockpool Safari – A chance to see some amazing Ocean creatures in their natural habitat.
