    Cancellation policy

    These tickets can't be cancelled or rescheduled.

    Jaws come to life at Dubai Aquarium’s Shark Encounter. Dive into the water using a helmet and watch the deadly hunters from centimeters away as they swim around your enclosure which lures them in with buckets of dish. This is the first time non-experienced divers have been able to enter the shark feeding area. The enclosure guarantees safety at all points.

    Arrive 1 hour prior to your scheduled booking time for a brief safety briefing. Learn the various do’s and don'ts of the underwater world, the different hand signs and breathing techniques before you plunge into the deep blue waters. Put on your gear, and descent into the shark pool.

    You will observe the sharks from the confines of a clear glass enclosure (trust us, you want this). Buckets of fish will help lure the sharks towards you and you will be able to catch these incredible animals feeding. You will have a helmet to aid your breathing underwater. This experience is so safe that you don’t need professional help, just the safety briefing.
