Diving with Sharks: Experiences for Kids

Diver on underwater platform

Ultimate Junior Shark Dive Encounter

We offer a truly unique junior shark-dive experience – allowing young people to get up close to our amazing sharks! They’ll dive in the reef section of our Caribbean Reef Exhibit to mingle with Blacktip Reef Sharks, large Stingrays, Zebra Sharks as well as a variety of tropical fish. They’ll dive down to a safe depth of two metres onto an underwater bridge platform. The dive can be viewed from either the tank’s surface or below from the underwater ‘dry’ side in the Shark Tunnel.

Junior shark experiences at Blue Planet Aquarium include:

For children aged 8 to 15 Please note: There is a minimum height requirement of 125cm (4ft2″)


Junior Dive encounters are available on Saturday and Sunday mornings, at 8.30 am unless otherwise stated. Extra dates may be made available during the school holidays. Please note: Bookings are limited and are on a first come first served basis

Book your voucher online. Then call our bookings team on 0151 357 8804 – to select a date for your dive.

General terms and conditions apply.

N.B. If you complete the shark encounter, it is recommended that you wait at least 24 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.
