About Our Shark Dive Experiences

Our Shark Experiences is a PADI-recognised discovery scuba session, where you’ll learn basic diving techniques from a highly qualified and experienced team – not to mention with our 10-feet Sand Tiger Sharks!

You will also dive with 10ft Nurse Sharks, Blacktip Sharks, two types of Bamboo Sharks, Arabian and Brown Banded, Southern Stingrays, Blackchin Guitar Fish & magnificent aquatic fish.

With safety in mind, our shark experiences are restricted to a maximum of two guests diving at any given time. You will also be accompanied by three members of our highly experienced and qualified dive team who will be able to assist you.

Our Shark Experiences are packed to the gills with the following:

  • Full instructions
  • A close-up and cage free diving experience 
  • Full use of our scuba equipment
  • An “I Dived with the Sharks at Blue Planet Aquarium” certificate

We often run dives on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 2pm or 4pm, although this remains subject to change and availability.
