First Dates: Seeking Daring, Shark-Diving Daters

First Dives

Nothing says ‘romance’ like some fun beneath the waves, right?

Grab your love goggles, because Blue Planet Aquarium is sending Cupid and his bow underwater to give the singletons of the North-West a little helping hand in the dating department.

  • Are you single?
  • Are you 18 or over?
  • Are you able to travel to Blue Planet Aquarium on Saturday 26 January 2019?  

If the answers are YES, then you’re about to experience a date like never before – welcome to First Dives!
Let the scuba-diving matchmakers find your perfect aquatic match. Fill in your details here and describe your ideal date. The wave-riding Cupid will have his bow and arrow at the ready, and it won’t be long until you’re diving into the depths of the ocean with your blind date.
Experience a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and have the chance to come face-to-fin with Blue Planet’s resident underwater giants. Experience what it’s like to swim with sharks, scuba dive, and learn all the secret underwater codes that divers use to speak to each other. We’re sure the only hand-code you’ll be interested in making is the love heart because you’ll be under the waves with your perfect match.
Interested in causing some splashes with Mr or Mrs Right? Make sure you sign up quick because there actually aren’t that many fish in the sea…
