Diving with Sharks!
13 September 2020
This was a great experience, I have a PADI licence but struggle with my ears, so this way I was able to dive with sharks and many fish without too much stress! Lovely friendly team, very supportive of those with no experienced/young. Great! I felt I got enough time in the water.

It was great that the large shark kept coming close. Just the right amount of time as well.

exhilarating present

I had a 40 minute slideshow to show to show me the health and safety things I needed before I went into the 4ft deep beginners pool which was filled with small baby sharks. In this small pool we learnt 4 different skills we need to know such as: clearing the mask, clearing the regulator, finding the regulator if it gets knocked out and stopping my ears from popping. This section takes about 30mins as there is only 3 in a group. Then we got ready to go in the shark tank which is very spacious. I am only 13 years old, before getting in it was less nerve racking than before the talk as I had been in the smaller tank as this had put my mind at ease but I was still a bit nervous. We then walked down the ladder slowly when we got down to the 2 meter platform we got our photo taken then I had to un-pop my ears which I found quite easy. Then we where lead down to the deeper part which was 4 meters deep. We where kneeled down on the sand by a big glass window where the spectators could take lots of photos. this where the instructor hand fed some of the fish. Then went to the second big window where nudge (the zebra shark) came and played in our breathing bubbles and he is so close he almost bumped into me. We picked up the sand from the floor and sprinkle it on top of the fish the unicorn fish liked it the most. While you are in the tank you get to see black tip sharks which don't come that close as they don't like the bubbles. there are over 200 fish in the tank and there are also some bat rays. as we where walking we were 50cm away from a sleeping bat ray but hey are usually at the top of the water. Be carful of some of the fish as one tried to eat my hair but I couldn't feel it. On a whole the experience was extremely exciting and worth the long drive!

My daughter brought this for my 65th birthday. I can’t swim but the staff were very attentive and put me at ease, I can’t thank them enough l, as I was truly nervous. We practiced in a small pool with 9 baby sharks & learnt to use the equipment and what to do if an issue arised. Then we went to the large pool and swam with sharks, rays and beautiful fish. It was amazing experience and didn’t think I would be able to do this but the staff were excellent. Thank you so much for a wonderful afternoon and I would highly recommend anyone of any age to try this experience

My husband asked me what I wanted for Xmas and I said “a surprise” I was surprised! The whole experience was excellent, staff very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble Would totally recommend anyone to try this from children to adults. Only 3 in a group, we was all different levels of experience but we was all supported and ensured we was at ease at all times Love the fact that their first priority is of the fish/sharks. I probably would have brought more souvenirs of the day if the shop had been open but as it was Oct & out of season, gift shop was closed but I did get photos & video of the swim, well worth the money

Such a lovely experience for any one wanting to experience a dive or get close to sharks and tropicalfish. Everyone was lovely and gave full training. there was a mix of people completly new to diving some that have done tandem dives and some qualified divers. Had such a fun day. I would advise any spectaors bring a book as there is a little bit of a wait.

Good experience
08 August 2019
I wouldn't call it a diving experience with sharks. The aquarium had 9 small sharks with the zebra shark being the biggest and the only shark that came close for a minute . It was mostly an interaction with the fish but non the less a good diving experience. The Scuba team where amazing and welcoming and where really informative about sharks. However the some of service team where rude and you have to pay for your photos in the cafe which meant joining a long queue of people waiting to buy their food so we didn't buy them.
