Here is what past 'Aquarist's for a Day' have to say:

"Thanks to Holly for looking after me and giving me such a fantastic day on my 'aquarist for a day' visit. The whole day was great but I especially enjoyed feeding the Nautilus and hand feeding the puffer fish. I'm sure that I will be back again." - Neil Young

“Just a quick letter to say THANK YOU very much for such a great day for my husband and I, we had a great time and got treated really well, Sarah was a great guide and very informative, it was very interesting learning everything about all of the fish and mammals, and my husband had a great surprise at the end with his gift bag and certificate.” - Sue Wright

“My son Chris and I really enjoyed the Aquarist Day! We learned so much and it was a fantastic opportunity to get behind the scenes at the Oceanarium. Please thank Sarah for looking after us so well and for being extremely helpful and informative.  I thoroughly commend Sarah and the Aquarist for a Day experience.”  - Sue Kalicinska
