Chat to a Marine Biologist
The future of our oceans will soon depend on our children.
Let your little dreamers dream… of a career as a marine biologist.
Most of us who love the great outdoors had early yearnings to be involved with nature somehow. But sometimes we need to know more before picking a career. We’re offering the opportunity for children to enjoy quality face time with our ocean experts.
Cost of experience: This experience requires a minimum of 6 individuals. Depending on the size of your group, the price will vary. The starting price for a group of 6 is USD 200 (roughly USD 30 per link).
Perfect for: Those interested in marine conservation or careers as marine biologists and ecologists (ages 11+).
Fantastic for children (ages 11+)
