Kelly Tarlton's SEA LIFE Aquarium - Shark Cage

 Get closer to sharks than you ever thought possible.  Take the plunge in our Shark Cage for a chance to snorkel with the ocean’s great predators.  Don’t miss the adrenaline rush of this face-to-face encounter.

This animal adventure has been specifically designed to deliver underwater exhilaration without the need to have diving experience or equipment. Plus, because the Shark Cage is partially submerged in Kelly Tarlton’s SEA LIFE Aquarium's predator tank (home to Sand Tiger, School, Wobbegong and Broadnose Sevengill sharks as well as Short-Tailed stingray and other fish from New Zealand’s coastal waters) you’re guaranteed to have a close encounter of the shark kind, every time.

Allow 1 hour for the encounter all up, time spent in the shark cage is approx. 20 minutes.  Prior to taking the plunge participants will get a behind the scenes peak at Kelly Tarlton’s before being briefed and suited up. They only need to bring togs and a towel (and wear covered footwear) everything else (spring suit, booties, mask and snorkel) is provided.

Once in the Shark Cage the adventure truly begins. Sharks and stingrays glide past the mesh walls of the cage in all directions – often only feet away. Through the cage’s clear Perspex bottom you can see more sharks swimming below as well as visitors gazing up at you in awe from the moving platform in Kelly Tarlton’s SEA LIFE Aquarium's iconic tunnels. The Shark Cage floats and moves around the predator tank without the need for you to do anything other than gaze in wonder.

The adventure is hosted by experienced Kelly Tarlton’s crew who have a passion for, and a unique understanding of the sharks. They have a wealth of knowledge to share and a focus on conservation – so you know you (and the sharks) are in good hands.
