Experience description

New Zealand is famous for its adventurous activities, and this underwater shark cage experience is right at the top of the pile. You’ll be immersed behind a mesh cage with a perspex bottom, allowing you unbelieveable views of the sharks (School, Sand Tiger, Wobbegong and Broadnose Sevengill) swimming all around you, as well as stingrays and many other fish from the country’s coastal areas - sometimes they’ll be only a few feet away, making this a real nail-biter of an experience.

No previous diving knowledge is needed - you’ll be given all the training and equipment required, and there will be a qualified instructor with you. As an additional benefit, beforehand, participants are invited to take a behind-the-scenes look at the famous Kelly Tarlton's Aquarium. And even though you’re going to find taking a dip with sharks is unforgettable, you’ll also be given a memory card containing a video of your dive, so you can impress your friends and shock your parents!
