Designed for the novice snorkeller aged between 6–11 years old, visit The Skegness Aquarium for the ultimate snorkelling experience with baby sharks! After a quick briefing session and essential basic training, enter the 1.1-metre shallow waters of the Lost Lagoon to search for hidden treasure and patiently wait for the fishy inhabitants to immerge from their rocky environment. Teased out with the scent of chopped squid, get up close and personal with beautiful Hasselt Catsharks, Epaulette Sharks, Coral Catsharks and a Brown Banded Bandoo Catshark. Villains of the deep? Quite the opposite. Remember your fun-filled adventure with a certificate and top off your day by exploring the rest of the aquarium!

Best gift for a wannabe marine biologist.

Bought the Shark Diving experience for my 14 year old sons birthday and he had an amazing time, even stating it was the best present ever. The experience is very well organised and the dive team were fantastic with looking after my son and making sure that he was OK. He would love to do it again. Highly recommend!

Snorkeling with sharks
24 October 2021
The kids absolutely loved this experience however it felt a little clunky end to end. You are asked to be there a 7:45 but no one opens the doors until 8am. 5 young kids outside at that time in the morning in winter is not fun. The snorkeling itself was brilliant, fun informative and really inclusive. Then you get thrown out of the aquarium for an hour until it opens at 10. At this time in winter nothing is open and there's no where to go. So the kids are walking around looking at rides that are closed and cafes that they can't eat in with wet hair. It would have made it much more special to let everyone in to the aquarium an hour early (we had just walked through) or maybe given everyone a drink in the cafe for an hour with the colouring in sheets from the museum. A little thought would hugely improve the experience

Difficult to book and
22 August 2021
Found this experience difficult to book, lots of emails flying around and then missed sessions as confused the start time, venue made no attempt to contact us despite answering all the emails in advance so obviously wanted to do the experience, turned up for start time I though I booked, aquarium informed us we had forfeited the voucher despite being in the aquarium, at 3 pm. So frustrated!!! Waste of a voucher.

Great experience being fed to the sharks!
31 July 2021
The experience was fabulous; the staff friendly and helpful (even at the last minute), the session ran really smoothly - you where shown everything you needed in the practice tank (with the smaller sharks helping out) before graduating to the main tank and the bigger sharks! An experience I will remember for a long time!

Awesome day!
02 February 2020
I bought this for my nephew who is shark mad!! He's only 6 and everywhere I looked only did shark experience for around 10+ years and then I found this!! He was looking forward to it for months and it didn't disappoint. The only thing I would change was that the side of the tank wasn't see through so spectators could only see from above.
