Could you muster up the courage to dive with creatures of the deep? Start off with a full safety briefing and equipment orientation, getting to grips with the state-of-the-art full face masks designed to optimise comfort and allow natural breathing. Take the plunge and glide past the Treasure Island Wreck of Hispaniola, coming face to face with magnificent bat rays, tropical fish and beautiful Black Tip Reef Sharks at The Skegness Aquarium – under the watchful eye of an expertly trained instructor, who will be in contact via a communications device throughout.

Had the best time ever. The guys working there were very professional and kind, they explained everything and made us very comfortable and confident to dive. The dove itself was so much fun and so easy. Would recommend to anyone thinking of trying diving. Thank you to those at Skegness for an unforgettable experience.

Diving with Sharks!

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.

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
