Oceans of Fun: Outreach Group Programs

Oceans of Fun is dedicated to the field of marine mammal science and education. We are committed to assisting our local school districts and community by providing engaging educational opportunities for students of all ages that will enhance and enrich your science curriculum.

At Oceans of Fun, we believe students gain a greater appreciation and understanding of the environment when they share memorable experiences with animals. Our goal is to promote stewardship and respect for the natural world through our interactive learning opportunities. We offer a variety of programs that are focused on animals and the environment. Every program is tailored to meet the needs of each class by providing material appropriate from kindergarten through college/career level.

Outreach programs are offered on-site at Oceans of Fun or can be delivered at your school.
