Snorkelling with sharks at SEA LIFE Kelly Tarlton’s Aquarium is an exhilarating experience and one of only a few experiences worldwide where you’re guaranteed an underwater encounter with sharks.

Shark Cage Adventure

The cage is submerged in the predator tank so you’re guaranteed to have a close encounter of the shark kind, every time. Through the cage’s clear Perspex bottom you can marvel at sharks, stingrays and other fish from New Zealand’s coastal waters swimming below, or past the mesh walls of the cage – often only feet away.

Accessibility – Making Inaccessible Spaces Available for All

The Shark Cage Adventure’s setting is only accessible by climbing into the netted cage from a low space in the top of the tank and involves being in surprisingly cold water for around 20 minutes. For this reason, the elderly or infirm, the disabled or claustrophobic could all be unable to visit and pregnant ladies are also not able to take part.

Although this stunning aquarium features a tunnel with a moving walkway that allows visitors to walk under some of the world’s biggest aquarium sharks our video offers an interesting first-hand view of what can be seen during a shark cage adventure at Kelly Tarlton’s.
