Field Trips

Learn and Have Fun at Blue Zooin Spokane

What better environment to educate and inspire young minds than a hands-on, interactive aquarium in Spokane, WA? Teach students about sea life from around the globe or touch and feed stingrays, birds, and reptiles. Kids can also play and learn on four water tables plus use their imaginations aboard a pirate ship—Avast!

Field trips can start when the aquarium opens with last check in at 2pm, Monday through Friday, capacity is up to 80 individuals. We require permission slips or a liability waiver. Ratio for children to adults should be 10:1 at most, with 8:1 being preferable, especially with younger children. 

With a pre-reserved time, field trip pricing is $6 per student and $9.95 per adult, children ages 2 and under are free. 

Add-ons: While your entry fee gets you access to all of aquarium, there are a couple of fun add-ons to consider:

A guided to tour with one of our Animal Care Experts adds additional insights, education and fun facts, along with question and answer time for an increased element of fun and interaction ($75).

Feeding tokens: Add to the excitement and learning of your students by providing animal feeding options! Token prices are $3 for 1 token, $10 for 4 tokens or $25 for 10.

A note about clothing: children, especially younger ones, can get pretty wet interacting with the water play tables, in particular. A change of shirt, especially in colder months, is advisable. 

Field trips are available every weekday throughout the year except school holidays. Examples include Winter Break, Spring Break and national holidays.
