Dive with the Sharks

Dive with the Sharks provides a unique opportunity for certified SCUBA divers, age 15 and older, to come face-to-face with live sharks! Splashing down in Shark Bay is the perfect dive; warm clear water, teaming with sharks from around the world and no boat ride! We provide the sharks and all of your gear for this experience of a lifetime. SHARK BAY EXHIBIT FACTS: Shark Bay is a 93,000-gallon saltwater exhibit home to shark species and sea turtles from around the world! Imagine diving where the water remains a constant 76 degrees with crystal clear visibility and no current or surge! WHO: Certified SCUBA divers 15-years or older. A maximum of two guests per dive assures an intimate and unforgettable experience! WHAT YOU GET: The program is approximately 90 minutes including an educational presentation about sharks and a 30-minute dive in the Shark Bay exhibit. The divers will exit the shark cage with an aquarium dive master and position themselves on the bottom of the exhibit in front of the exhibit window for optimal viewing of the sharks. Family and friends can view the divers during all phases of the dive from the Ocean Commotion gallery. The Florida Aquarium dive master reserves the right to deny any guest diver the opportunity to leave the shark cage if the safety of the guest diver or the animals in the exhibit are in jeopardy. SAFETY: Each guest is paired with a Florida Aquarium dive master whose sole responsibility is your safety. There are two dive masters in the exhibit with you and one surface tender present during all dives. This program is operated within the highest standards of recreational diving. COST: $150 per person includes Aquarium admission for the diver, a shark diver hat and a photograph of the diver during the experience. WHAT TO BRING: A mask, bathing suit, towel and dive certification card. All dive areas and changing facilities are handicapped accessible.
