Fancy getting up close and personal with sharks? If so a new Shark Trainer Encounter experience has been launched at Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo.

The family-friendly experience will educate guests about shark species as well as how the creatures are taken care of at Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo.

The educational content will be all about their environment, feeding and breeding habits while visitors also get to go behind the scenes in assisting the aquarium staff in training Bamboo Sharks and Leopard Sharks.

Visitors can get into the tank for a for a unique “trainer” experience and interact with the sharks. 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.

Daily sessions take place at 12:30pm, 2:30pm and 4:30pm and cost AED100 for a 30-minute session.

Located in The Dubai Mall, Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo is one of the largest and most diverse aquariums in the world. Underwater Zoo, located on Level 2 above the main Aquarium, presents global bio-diversity in different ecological zones.
