Sea Life Manchester will soon be providing guests with the opportunity to dip more than just their toe in the water with a brand-new snorkel cage experience.
Launching this Saturday 22nd May, thrill-seekers will be able to get closer than ever before to more than 1,000 creatures of the deep.
From the safety of a cage with Perspex bars, explorers can expect to see Black Tip Reef sharks, Brown Banded Bamboo sharks and Tessa, the resident nurse shark.
As well as sharks, snorkellers will meet stingrays and the king and queen of Sea Life’s ocean tank, Cammie and Ernie – the much-loved giant green sea turtles, plus other beautiful fish.
With half a million litres of sea water and 31 species inhabiting the ocean display there are plenty of creatures to meet.
“Sea Life Manchester has been inspiring and educating families for many years on the wonders of ocean life,” said general manager Jenn McDonough.
“Our brand-new experience, Snorkel with Sharks, is a fantastic addition to the attraction proving a truly immersive experience that promises to excite the most inquisitive ocean explorers.
“Movies like Jaws have instilled a widespread fear in the public about sharks, however they are in fact highly intelligent and on the whole, placid creatures.
“With this new experience we are looking forward to further educating visitors on all our wonderful marine creatures and reiterating the importance of taking care of our oceans for generations to come.”
Snorkel with Sharks is a one-hour surface snorkelling adventure. The activity is suitable for swimmers age 10+ and includes a full briefing, introduction to the incredible creatures you can expect to see, and 20 minutes snorkelling in the purpose-built shark cage.
Tickets cost £40 per person, and the session can be booked for two to four people from the same household or bubble.
