Shark experience

After being taught dive techniques by Deep Sea World’s highly qualified and experienced team, kids will come face to face with sand tiger sharks, angel sharks, sea bass and stingrays. The little explorers will then see the creatures from a platform 1.2 metres under the water, with a secure railing. The experience is a rare treat as even professional divers rarely get as close to sharks as you can in this underwater safari.

You’ll even get photos of your encounter to take away with a bronze photo package with four 6x8 photographs to remember your fin-tastic day!
