A standard AQWA Excursion offers a 2-3 hour visit to WA's dedicated major aquarium, featuring more than 45 native exhibits.

Bring 3 For The Sea initiative:

  • This small challenge will support AQWA Foundation’s turtle rehabilitation program AND reduce plastics in the ocean and in landfill. Simply have each student bring 3 eligible containers to donate during your excursion.
  • Participating schools can receive a Certificate of Acknowledgement for helping the AQWA Foundation!
  • When you book an AQWA excursion, you can request we post out a Containers for Change collection bag to start gathering your containers before you visit!
