Activity Centre & Learning Resources – We know it’s a juggling act right now with the kids at home. Our educators and animal experts have compiled resources for kids to learn to care for the ocean – and the animals in it – from the comfort of home. So dive in.
Existing school program bookings affected by school closure or aquarium closure will be cancelled and due to the nature of this unprecedented situation, we are making an exception to our non-refundable deposit policy. All deposits will be refunded. Due to high volume, please allow for 4 to 6 weeks of processing time.
Until we can welcome you back, we invite you to continue to experience, explore and learn about our oceans with us online through our digital touchpoints. Visit vanaqua.org/notices and stay up to date via our social media channels.
