Dolphins, Whales and Shark Experiences

Marine life is amazing. Marvel at the beauty of unique mammals with dolphin, whale and shark experiences. Head out to the UK’s open seas for sightings of these aquatic wonders in the wild, or dive into a tank filled with sea life for something that’s one of a kind.

These animal experiences create enduring fond memories, making them the perfect way to celebrate any occasion. Make someone’s 21st birthday super special, mark a milestone anniversary or treat a parent on Mother’s or Father’s day.

Scuba Diving with Sharks

Follow in the footsteps of marine biologists with a session scuba diving amongst sharks. Hosted at Skegness Aquarium in the North of England, excited explorers suit up in a full scuba suit, take in some basic training then take the plunge. Thirty minutes underwater is more than enough time to get close to exotic fish! Or, take a dip in the open waters of Oban, Scotland for a swim in the ocean with the second largest fish in the world – the basking shark! They grow up to 26-feet in length, making it a real thrill to swim alongside one.

Dolphin and Whale Watching

Want something that’s out in the wild? Head down to Falmouth in Cornwall for a chance to see all types of aquatic species on an exhilarating boat ride off the coast. Once aboard the 12-seater inflatable vessel, it’s time to venture out to sea. Keep an eye out for dolphins, porpoises, seals and even whales. Animal sightings aren’t guaranteed, but it’s sure to be an exciting day!
