Shark Dives Daily
Okay, queue the theme music from Jaws. Because when you get in the water with a handful of sharks larger than you that is what you hear.
Dive with the Sharks provides a unique opportunity for certified SCUBA divers, age 15 and older, to come face-to-face with live sharks! Dive into the Aquarium's largest tank, the Coral Reef Exhibit; warm clear water, teeming with massive sharks, moray eels, barracuda a green sea turtle and more! We provide the sharks and all of your gear for this experience of a lifetime.
New, improved and more intense than ever! Check out the video above. Advanced reservations are required. Check for availability. Diver's Note: Must bring Diver Certification Card to the Aquarium with you.
The Dive with the Sharks program makes you the star of the show and dispels the commonly held myth that sharks are man-eaters. Sharks educates, inspires and facilitates a greater understanding of these amazing animals through a personal interactive experience!
Family and friends view the divers during all phases of the dive from the exhibit 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 their safety. There are two dive masters in the exhibit with the guest and one surface tender present during all dives. This program is operated within the highest standards of recreational diving. The Florida Aquarium dive team is professionally trained to supervise recreational diving activities by NAUI, a world wide recognized scuba training and certification agency.
