It’s possible to feed the rays on certain dates and to feed the lorikeets (using cups of syrup) throughout the year. Special tickets including animal encounters are also available, and guests can meet sharks, sea otters, penguins, and sea lions. There’s also a range of exclusive VIP experiences, choose between the sea otter and octopus package, the penguins, seals, and sea lions package, or the sharks and rays package. If you have an Open Water SCUBA qualification then you can also take part in a tank diving experience in the Tropical Reef Habitat. All of these experiences are individually priced and most need to be booked in advance, so check the aquarium’s website before your visit.
