How to dive with sharks in Dubai
If you do not dare, you'll never know how it feels to be surrounded by sharp-toothed sharks and huge rays. Are you curious? Go to Dubai Mall - here is an aquarium, which got into the Guinness Book of Records due to its huge size.

The meeting with the sharks will take place in the friendly atmosphere of the artificial "ocean". Your safety will be under the control of the aquarium staff, so if all the rules are followed, any diver won`t suffer :-)

Sharks, Dubai

How to do?

1. Go to Dubai Mall, which is located next to the skyscraper Burj Khalifa . Go out at the Burj Khalifa or Dubai Mall Metro Station. On the first floor of the shopping center you will see a huge aquarium, in which there are about 300 sharks and rays. Wait a little, and you will be able to look at the visitors of the center with the perspective of the inhabitants of the aquarium and wave them with your hand.

2. If you are novice at this business, first of all you will need to undergo a training session. A certified diver can dive right away. All the necessary equipment will be provided on site. You can dive even in your swimming costume.

3. Diving with sharks is held 3 times a day for 20-30 minutes, depending on who you are - an experienced diver or a beginner. You will swim to inspect the most interesting places together with the instructor in the aquarium. The sharks and rays will be swimming above you. Breathe smoothly and do not make sudden movements.

4. You will get a certificate that will confirm your experience with sharks, and as a bonus - a free ticket to the Underwater Zoo with penguins, snakes and other reptiles.
