Educational programs

Looking for a fun visit that’s educational, too? Then take a look at all of our school and group programmes here.

SUMMER PROGRAM

Educational, interactive session for schools

Go on a discovery adventure with our caretakers. Marvel at our animals from the first row! First, you’ll see a presentation in the sea lion theatre. Afterwards, you’ll visit the dolphinarium. During this performance, you’ll learn about the lives of dolphins and sea lions in a fun way. We’ll also teach you about marine mammals in general. You’ll not only learn about their life here in the dolphinarium, but also about their life in the wild. Our team’s pedagogical training means that this educational, interactive performance guarantees an excellent teaching package that aligns with the official curricula.
The cherry on top is that the whole school can have their picture made with the dolphins! It’s a great souvenir to show family and friends.

The teacher will be e-mailed educational work sheets in advance, so they and their students can prepare for the educational program in class.
