The Shark Educational Dive is suitable from 10 years up* and will allow participants the chance to scuba dive in The Coral Ocean Display. This is home to numerous sharks and rays, as well as hundreds of warm water fish. Meet Nudge, the zebra shark, face to face, watch as bat rays swim graciously overhead or marvel at the large batfish swirling around your head. All this is experienced in our main display with no barriers between you and the inhabitants.

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.

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 on-line 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.
