Diving with Sharks: Experiences for Kids

Ultimate Junior Shark Dive Encounter

We offer a truly unique junior shark-dive experience – allowing children to get up close to our amazing sharks!

Your little ones can dive in the reef section of our Ocean Tank to mingle with black 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:

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 8.30am unless otherwise stated. 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.
