One of Dubais most exhilarating activities has opened at the Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo. Shark Dives give people in Dubai the chance to swim amongst 33,000 aquatic animals within the 10 million litre tank at Dubai Aquarium.

Divers will be able to explore the 51m x 20m x 11m aquarium, which is one of the largest in the world, coming face-to-face with resident Sand Tiger sharks, Reef sharks, Leopard sharks, Giant Groupers and Stingrays, among others.

Organised in association with Al Boom Diving, Shark Dives at Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo are open to all, with non-certified divers being offered the opportunity to take a short course provided by Al Boom Diving at their branches at Al Wasl Road or at Dubai Marina Yacht Club.

Mr Arif Amiri, Senior Director, Emaar Properties PJSC, said, Visitors to Dubai Aquarium have been fascinated by the sight of our staff divers, who dive underwater to feed our sharks and fishes every day. Now, with the launch of Shark Dives, we are offering the opportunity for all to have an incredible diving experience in an aquarium environment.

Qualified dive masters and instructors from Al Boom Diving will be present throughout the diving experience. Advance bookings are required for Shark Dives.
