Make an Impact
Our dedicated volunteers are an integral and valued part of the Oklahoma Aquarium team! Volunteers provide service in a variety of capacities every day.
Aqua Agents are the face of the aquarium to our guests, providing information and direction at the front entrance, assisting guests at animal feed stands, and enhancing the guest experience at the interactive touch tanks. With knowledge and exceptional attitudes, we welcome 400,000 visitors each year. Willingness to learn, ability to speak to crowds, flexibility to adapt to each day, and a genuine enjoyment of people are all a must.
Volunteers must be at least 18 years old to volunteer and pass a criminal background check.
The volunteer dive team is responsible for keeping our large exhibits looking beautiful. Dive shifts are Monday through Sunday during open aquarium hours. Volunteering as a diver at the aquarium requires dedication and hard work but the reward is getting to swim in breathtaking exhibits with amazing animals. The daily dive shows are a guest favorite; our divers are their own unique attraction!
All divers must be 18+ years old, SCUBA certified, and pass a criminal background check.
