O.C.E.A.N. Education ‘Dive In’ School Holiday Program

Journey With Dolphin Session

Our Dolphin Research Australia Inc. School Holiday Education Programs for younger ages are based on learning, experiencing and connecting with dolphins and the marine environment. Through fun integrated activities, children will learn about the lives of dolphins and their plight for survival.  Our programs empower both young and old to help to protect dolphins and their environment from the growing number of threats they face.

Our team of professional marine educators and volunteers facilitate each program and guides the participants through fun and informative activities.


Program Description

During the program, children (and adults alike) learn about the world of dolphins and the oceans through talks, an art and craft session and a beach clean-up (weather permitting). Over the 2-2.5hr session, the children learn all sorts of exciting facts as well as how they can help to conserve the home of dolphins and the oceans and actually participate in helping to clean up our beaches.

Our holiday sessions  invite the children to connect with the oceans, dolphins and all sea creatures. We will share our knowledge about dolphins and their environment and also find out how much we have in common with them and how we can help conserve them – in a creative and experiential way through dance and movement, guided meditation,  and art and craft.

If you are interested in attending one of our school holiday programs and would like further details about the content of the program, please send us an email and we will send you a copy of our information brochure and enrollment form.

Ages: Our School Holiday education program is suitable for ages 6-11years
