There are a host of unique underwater experiences; however nothing beats a close shark encounter. If you fancy getting up close and personal with sharks, then Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo’s new Shark Trainer Encounter is a must try!
The family-friendly experience will educate visitors about shark species just as how these stunning creatures are dealt with at Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo. The educational content will be all about their environment, feeding and breeding habits. Besides the learning experience, guests get the opportunity to go behind the scenes in helping the aquarium staff in training Bamboo Sharks and Leopard Sharks.
Get into the tank for a unique “trainer” experience and interact with these brilliant creatures. There will be no swimming required, as it is a standing activity, so guests will only be submerged to about waist height in waterproof waders.
