Enter SEA LIFE Blackpool and explore over 2,000 different species
A true once-in-a-lifetime experience, visit SEA LIFE Blackpool for a chance for two to snorkel with sharks. All ages are welcome (just make sure you're tall enough!) as no previous diving experience is necessary. Enter the tropical shark display and spend an exhilarating 30 minutes snorkelling with spectacular marine life such as the massive Humphead Wrasse and over 20 sharks (species include Guitar Shovelnose Sharks, Black Tip Reef Sharks and the UK's only pair of Bowmouth Guitar Sharks). Afterwards take a behind the scenes tour, seeing working areas that aren't normally open to the public and get a handle on how fish food is prepared by the professionals, while learning all about the shark breeding, research and conservation programmes.
Runs on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and at weekends throughout the year, excluding only Christmas Day.
No minimum age but participants need the ability to swim and a minimum height of 4'3''. Under 14's must be accompanied into the cage by a participating guardian, who also has to sign any consent forms for under 18's.
Lasts around 90 minutes, including a 30 minute snorkel (sessions at 11am, 1pm and 3pm). There is plenty to see so why not spend the remainder of the day at the venue (open from 10am - 4pm).
Numbers on the Day
The maximum number of people per dive is four.
Two spectators are welcome, at a cost of £25 per person (payable directly to the venue on the day or in advance at point of booking). Feel free to take pictures, but only without a flash please.
Please bring swimwear and a towel. All equipment including wetsuits and snorkel gear is provided.
Under 14s need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian also participating in the Meet the Sharks experience.
