Dive Volunteer

Audubon Aquarium volunteer diver

Unfortunately at this time we are not accepting new Dive Volunteer Applications.

Have you ever wondered what it takes to keep a 400,000-gallon exhibit tank clean? Or, how Audubon Aquarium of the Americas feeds and cares for the thousands of fish in its collection? Through its volunteer dive program, Audubon offers opportunities to learn about and participate in the care and maintenance of its underwater exhibits. Plus, volunteer divers are great ambassadors, engaging Aquarium guests both in and out of the water!

Volunteer divers must complete Audubon Volunteer Orientation, as well as Audubon’s Downtown advanced volunteer training. Advanced volunteer training is a six-week program offered twice per year. A total course fee of $75 covers a volunteer uniform shirt, background check, and training materials; however, there may be additional fees for equipment and safety certifications. Volunteer divers work cooperatively in teams, and each diver must commit to two dive shifts per month.

Audubon does not offer Open Water SCUBA training or certification. Applicants must complete this requirement prior to beginning the volunteer dive program.
