Shark Dives
March 14, 2019 @ 12:15 PM - 12:45 PM Recurring event
Ocean Beyond the Sound Exhibit
Would you jump into a tank of water filled with 6- and 7-foot sharks? Actually, it can be done – bloodlessly – because sharks aren't really the aggressive man-eaters of popular myth. Come see for yourself when The Maritime Aquarium's dive team spends some quality time among the sand tiger sharks, lemon shark and other creatures of the 110,000-gallon "Ocean Beyond the Sound" exhibit. Thanks to a cool communication link, you can even talk with the divers while they're in the exhibit with the sharks! They'll tell you that sharks should be respected ... but not feared.Free with Aquarium admission.Please Note: Our Aquarium dive team is an all-volunteer crew. Dives may sometimes be cancelled with short or no notice due to availability. Where possible, they will substitute a "meet the diver" experience. The audio system that lets you hear the divers talk also carries the sounds of the divers' SCUBA respiration. Some young children may find this loud and unnatural. More Details
