Preschool Marine Incursion
Ever wondered if you could build a classroom under the sea? Well you dont have to! Our Marine Mania incursion will have your kindergarten students in the deep end of close encounter learning, not only seeing some of Melbourne’s most fascinating marine animals but feeling them too… well not the sharks of course.
Learn about the spines of a sea urchin, feel the texture of an 11 arm sea star, find out how puffer fish protect themselves and get face to face with a shark in this 1 hour engaging presentation that will leave your kindergarten students amazed at our very own backyard.
You will meet marine creatures that call our zoo home such as speedie, the 11 arm sea star, who is surprisingley fast! Carrot the freckled puffer fish who fills himself up with water when threatened, and you will even meet a port jackson shark named Michael, the puppy dogs of the ocean!

For each marine incursion booked we have made the pledge to do something about the litter found in and around our local Port Phillip. For each Ocean Explorers incursion booked, we will personally pull up our sleeves, and pick up rubbish found around Port Phillip for 30 minutes. We care about our local environment so we are putting our snorkel were our mouth is!
Help us on our journey to clean Port Phillip Bay!
