Trainer for a Day

Quick Details

Spend the day with an Aquarium trainer and take a behind-the-scenes look at this fascinating career! Help the trainers prepare fish, learn about the animal’s medical care, participate in sea lion enrichment, and so much more. Throughout your day, you meet a rescued seal and sea lion, and visit with a Humboldt penguin*! Includes a t-shirt, snack, and photos to remember your special day!

There are only two participants per session and participants must be at least 12 years old.  Parents and guardians cannot accompany the participant during the day but do have the option to watch activities that occur in public viewing. Reservations are available online.

* Please note: In response to the deadly Avian Flu, the Aquarium is working under the direction of and in coordination with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to ensure the safety of our Humboldt penguin colony.

As a result of enhanced safety protocols, we are not able to offer the penguin feeding and penguin encounter portions of the Trainer for a Day program until further notice. The Trainer for a Day program is discounted by 30% during this time.
