Animal Caretaker for a Day

A look behind the scenes?

Give your child an incredible experience by spending half a day as an animal caretaker at SEA LIFE! Your child will see the animals up close and behind the scenes, learn what is involved in preparing their food and perhaps even help train a sea lion. After a fun morning, there is still time to visit the sharks, king crabs, creepy fish and jellyfish.


Animal Caretaker for a Day

Do you want to make lunch for our otters? And so much more...

Surprise the children with a day out at SEA LIFE Blankenberge, spending half the day as an animal caretaker. They will help out in the kitchen, making lunch for the otters for example, and then go into the penguin enclosure to clean out their pens and maybe even teach a sea lion a new trick.

The tour starts at 09:00 a.m., and after 12.00 noon they are free to discover the rest of the aquariums. Trust us, the children will have so much to tell the other kids when they go back to school!
