Volunteers

Make an Impact

Volunteers at this non-profit and educational facility are an integral part of our mission of “Conservation Through Education”. Our volunteers are essential to creating an unforgettable underwater adventure and helping to impart a sense of wonder and appreciation of the aquatic environments in all of our visiting guests.

Our diverse collection of friendly volunteers are relied on to help with a wide variety of operations including greeting guests, providing hands-on experiences with our exhibits, helping to feed our sharks, putting on underwater dive shows in our tanks and much, much more.
