Dive Volunteers

Once the Aquarium reopens, the priority will be to institute new health and safety for returning staff, current volunteers and aquarium guests. This process could take several months so we do not anticipate bringing on new volunteers until early 2021. Once we determine open positions, we will be reviewing applications in the order they were received. At that time we will contact you about your continued interest and availability. Feel free to contact us at volunteers@aquaticsciences.org if you have questions.

Dive into the Ocean Realm exhibit. Perform shows using underwater microphone technologies. Assist in exhibit maintenance; help with food preparation and feeding.

Divers play a vital role in ensuring that aquarium guests have a wonderful experience.
