Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo launches brand-new ‘Shark Training’ experience
The Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo at The Dubai Mall has launched a brand-new ‘Shark Trainer’ experience, and it invites everyone to learn and yes, train Bamboo Sharks and Leopard Sharks.
The experience is available daily, with 30 minute sessions starting from 12.30pm, 2.30pm and 4.30pm. Up to six guests can take on the experience at one time, all with an experienced professional to guide them along the session.
No need to be able to swim either, as guests will be getting into a waist-high (shark) tank, kitted out in waterproof suits.
As for what all you amateur trainers will be doing, professionals will teach the basics of sharks, along with their environment and feeding habits.
Along with getting up, close and personal with the kings of the ocean, shark enthusiasts will also go behind the scenes in assisting training both types of sharks.
Sessions are just AED100, and you can book yourself in by visiting www.thedubaiaquarium.com or calling +971 4 448 5200.
Before you head there, if you want to know a few toothy facts about sharks, we’re got 30 of them right here you can dish out.
When: Daily, 12.30pm, 2.30pm and 4.30pm
