Amazing and Educational Activities for Children!
Ocean Explorer Day
Let’s get the kids off their iPads and doing something healthy and super fun! From 6 years old, they can spend an Ocean Explorer day with our marine conservation team to learn how the marine ecosystem works and what we can do to keep it healthy.
They’ll get some fun classroom time in the morning to learn age appropriate basics, then it’s all go with non-stop practical activities!
They’ll collect samples of sand and plankton to analyze under the microscope in our lab. If they are swimmers they’ll get a 5 minute boat ride to our local marine protected area at Dibba Rock where they can snorkel and check out the marine life. Our marine biologists are in the water to show them where to search and then explain what they are looking at. They usually get to see turtles, sharks and a ton of other cool critters, as well as stunning coral reefs.
After drying off, our intrepid explorers return to the lab where they can paint what they have seen onto ceramic tiles. These get baked hard and installed onto our artificial reefs to leave your child’s signature in the sea for posterity!
We do a lot of work with children and you can rest assured that they will finish the day full of smiles and bursting with stories to tell. If Mum and Dad would like to join, we can make it into a family experience!
The day costs 525 Dhs for swimmers and 350 Dhs for non-swimmers and the children will receive an Ocean Explorer certificate.
We organize customized trips and online webinars for schools that would like to educate their students about the ocean, or get them actively working on marine conservation projects.
We can cater for ages 6-16 for online learning sessions and ages 7-16 for day trips to our Radisson Blu facility in Dibba Fujairah. Online sessions are delivered using age appropriate materials, so it’s best to group student attendees into age brackets for the best learning experience.
Group sizes will depend on age and types of activity, we can provide suggestions for the best way to organize the day.
