Volunteer At the Aquarium
From adult volunteers to teen volunteers to dive volunteers, there are many opportunities to spend time at the aquarium. Build experience, interact with guests, or dive in the Living Shipwreck habitat and help maintain our many animal habitats.
Volunteers assist in a variety of areas, from visitor education and exhibit interpretation to special events. They play key roles in the daily operation of the Aquarium and in its conservation efforts. As exhibit interpreters, they provide a personalized, informal interpretation of the Aquarium’s aquatic life and habitats.
The Aquarium offers certified SCUBA divers a unique and rewarding underwater experience. Volunteer divers inside the 306,000-gallon Living Shipwreck converse with visitors about the many animals gliding around a replica of the U-352, a famous World War II shipwreck. Volunteer divers also assist with other programs underwater, as well as help care for the animals and maintain the habitats.
There are many ways to volunteer at the Aquarium as a young adult. We offer year-round volunteer opportunities, an Aquarium Ambassador program, and other opportunities to get involved with the Aquarium. Learn from volunteers who have been with the Aquarium for years. Shadow staff members in education and learn how we care for our animals and produce events and programs for our guests.
