Thanks to special kid-sized scuba gear, we now offer a unique kids’ shark-dive experience – allowing children to swim among our collection of sharks!
Your little ones can dive in the reef section of our Ocean Tank to mingle with black tip and white tip sharks, as well as a variety of tropical fish, to a safe depth of two metres onto an underwater bridge platform. The dive can be viewed from either the tank’s surface or the underwater ‘dry’ side in the aqua tunnel.
Each junior shark encounter experience at Blue Planet Aquarium includes…
Dive sessions are available on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
Bookings can be made a maximum of ten weeks in advance.
To book your dive or to enquire about next available dates, call our bookings team on 0151 357 8804 – or you can book your dive online now.
Please note that bookings are limited and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. General terms and conditions apply.
N.B. If you complete the shark encounter, it is recommended that you wait at least 12 hours before flying. This is because the residual nitrogen that is still dissolved in your blood after diving can come out of solution as bubbles if the pressure reduction is not slow enough to let your body off-gas safely – such as if you ascend to altitude too soon after your dive.
