Earning quite the reputation, sharks sure are captivating creatures, diving with them will shed a whole new light on your view of these fascinating animals. This will get you up close and personal with a whole range of species from bat rays and unicorn fish to black tip reef sharks and zebra sharks! Kick things off with an expert briefing and equipment orientation, before taking the plunge on Europe’s only aquarium shark dive for complete novices using cutting-edge full-face masks designed to optimise participant comfort – you’ll have full communications through the technology built into the mask with an expert instructor during the dive! Luckily for you, these mysterious creatures are non-man-eating and will only be curious about their new visitors. After braving an encounter with one of the most powerful predators in our oceans, come up for air and explore the remaining sea life wonders of the Skegness Aquarium.

Brilliant Christmas gift

My wife bought this experience as Christmas presents for myself, son and two teenage grand-daughters. Although all slightly apprehensive to begin with, we thoroughly enjoyed the dive and were bubbling over with enthusiasm and excitement afterwards. We have over 100 photos to prove it! We had lots of time in the water, were well prepared first and were looked after by a very professional and friendly team of qualified divers.

Absolutely Amazing!!
20 November 2021
The whole team at Skegness Aquarium are warm, friendly and helpful. I was a bit worried, having never dived before, but felt comfortable and relaxed at every step. Jamie explained everything carefully in the training tank before making sure we had the skills to be safe going into the Coral tank with the truly amazing sharks and fish. I can’t thank the the team enough for making the experience so relaxed and enjoyable. Would highly recommend.
