During your Shark Encounter, you will have the chance to come face-to-fin with a variety of shark species, including powerful 10ft Sand Tiger Sharks as well as a huge selection of stingrays and shoals of beautiful fish.

Before your encounter, our knowledgeable team will provide you with a comprehensive briefing on shark behaviour, biology, and conservation efforts. You’ll gain a deeper understanding of these misunderstood creatures and the importance of protecting their natural habitats.

All equipment is provided!

Once you’re ready, it’s time to enter the water and meet the sharks up close. Our experienced divers will accompany you throughout the encounter, ensuring your safety and answering any questions you may have. You’ll have the opportunity to observe the sharks, witnessing their grace, power, and beauty firsthand.

For those who prefer to stay dry, we also have our incredible underwater tunnel where you can observe the sharks from below the water but staying dry. This allows you to witness their incredible movements and behaviours without getting wet.

Free entry for two accompanying spectators!
