BIG NEWS! ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿšจ IMPORTANT NEWS ๐ŸšจThe Aquarium WILL BE CLOSED on Thursday the 1st of December 2022! โš ๏ธโ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹This is to allow our famous Zebra Shark, Nudge, to move! ๐ŸฆˆFancy being one of the last to get a Nudge plushie? Comment your photos of him to be entered into our competition! ๐Ÿ“ท Full details below ๐Ÿ‘‡ Skegness Aquarium is thrilled to announce that Nudge will be travelling to Paris! At the age of 8, Nudge will be leaving us to head to our friends over at Cinรฉaqua Aquarium de Paris Cinรฉaqua, his new home where he'll hopefully breed! ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ทCinรฉaqua is one of the largest Aquariums in Europe and is located in Paris, France, and have offered to rehome Nudge to potentially breed with one of their female Zebra Sharks. It was the first Aquarium ever built, they're home to over 13,000 animals, boasting 500 different species, a capacity of 5,300,000 litres and even 2 cinema screens. This would allow the conservation of this vital and amazing species! We could not have been prouder to have had him in our Aquarium ever since we opened over 7 years ago, with him being our first ever shark, named by a customer for his behaviour of 'nudging' us.We've seen him grow from a tiny baby shark, develop a personality, becoming the 7 foot behemoth and King of the Tank that he is today! ๐ŸŒŸHeโ€™s been the star of the show every since we opened, and has become part of our crew. He will be missed by all of us here, our Coral Ocean display will definitely feel empty without him... ๐Ÿ ๐ŸŸSkegness Aquarium is proud to participate in any conservation program, and by fulfilling our obligations and playing our part in ensuring the continued conversance of this vital species. Zebra Sharks are classed as being endangered, so it's important that we partake in any potential programs to preserve the population for years to come. โค๏ธIt's expected that Nudge will live there for the rest of his life, with Zebra Sharks typically living until around 30! โญ๏ธMeanwhile, our beloved Bat Rays will be re-entering the Coral Ocean Display shortly, keep your eyes peeled for updates as they settle back into their home! ๐Ÿ‘€The Aquarium will be back open as usual on Friday the 2nd of December 2022.Anyone with bookings for this date, don't worry! Your tickets are valid for up to 1 year after the date of booking. For those with Experiences scheduled for this date, the Dive team will have contacted you to reschedule this. Please check your emails! โœ‰๏ธThank you for your understanding ๐Ÿ˜€Help us celebrate his journey so far, by commenting with your favourite photos of Nudge that youโ€™ve taken, for your chance to win a large Nudge plushie! ๐Ÿฆˆ Competition closes on Sunday the 4th of December 2022Please keep an eye on our page for some updates on Nudge from his new home! ๐Ÿก ...

About Our Experiences

These wonderful educational experiences offer the perfect opportunity to understand sharks and the importance of their conservation. To spend time with them is enlightening and mesmerizing, for both the participant and their one free non-participating spectator.

The Skegness Dive & Snorkelling Centre has developed its experiences in partnership with The British Sub Aqua Club (BSAC), and educational partner The Shark Trust to offer you the very best in entry level diver and snorkelling training and shark conservation information.

NEW FOR 2022

We have partnered with Ocean Reef UK/Malta and are using the advanced G-Driver Full Face scuba diving masks to ensure every participant has the best experience possible while maintaining the highest safety standards.

The Shark Educational Dive and Shark Snorkelling Ranger Experiences, which can be booked up to a year in advance, will start from home with an E-Learning process that will prepare participants via an online lesson. Be sure to provide the correct email address when booking to be kept updated about the experience; a new streamlined digital registration form procedure, as well as the e-lesson are all sent electronically. This allows us to complete time consuming paperwork and essential teaching ahead of the event, resulting in participants being prepared in advance for the day.

Direct Booking

So what are you waiting for!!!
