School trips

A visit to SEA LIFE Porto is an educational discovery of facts and trivia about the fascinating marine world. Here, children are the detectives of the seas by exploring it, sharing and learning. Here are the necessary tips to make your school's visit a day to remember!

Plan your visit

Anticipate your visit and transform your School’s experience into a unique moment of leisure and learning.


Here are some ideas:

  • First School

Before visiting SEA LIFE Porto, let's draw a clown fish, a shark, a puffy fish and a ray. On the day of visit, bring your drawings, so that you can compare with the real fishes, at SEA LIFE Porto. What are the differences? In the end, after already having seen them live and in colour, draw them again and create an aquarium in the Classroom!

  • Middle School

The environment in which an animal or plant naturally lives is called its habitat. Imagine you are a blue tang, just like Doris from Finding Nemo. A blue tang lives in reefs. Build its habitat - fauna and flora - and then compare it with the ones made by your colleagues. In the end, the teacher helps to measure the compatibility of each of the added elements to the several habitats.
