Junior Shark Encounter £120

The perfect underwater adventure for children aged 8-15. The Bubblemaker sessions gives the little ones the chance to swim on a journey of underwater discovery in the main shark tank.

Children will receive full training and briefing instructions on diving underwater and how to use the diving equipment. When ready to jump in, they’ll take part in fun underwater coordination games with our specially trained divers.

During this truly life-changing experience, children will stand on a 1.2m deep platform to allow them to feel safe and secure during the dive. There is no cage, just the platform – but there will be a secure railing between them and the sharks, so there’s no need to worry about them getting too close! Once they have completed their dive, children will receive a “I dived with sharks” certificate, which we’re sure they’ll want to show off to all their friends.
