Dive with Sharks for a Jaw-some Adventure in New York
Dive with sharks for a jaw-some adventure in New York, if you dare.
Experience an adventure of a lifetime at the Long Island Aquarium where you'll get nose to nose with the ocean's top predator in a unique shark dive experience. Don't worry, you'll be inside a cage, in the 120,000 gallon Lost City of Atlantis shark exhibit. But you will be right in the middle of 8 circling sharks as well as an array of fish the aquarium says "can't be found together anywhere on Earth."
You don't even need a diving certification to take part, and a trained Shark Dive Instructor will join you for this jaw dropping adventure. You'll be given everything you need for the dive, including a wetsuit, scuba gear, and an underwater mask. You can even bring your own underwater GoPro or other camera to capture the special moment.
Learn all about the sharks and take a guided tour of their habitats before your shark dive lesson and safety briefing.
Shark divers must be 12 years of age or older and anyone age 12 to 17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

I'm in! Who's with me? Tad can hold our purses because there's no way he's taking the dive.
