You will be kitted out in a wet suit and scuba gear, and a member of staff will go through an introduction and safety talks. After being taught how to use the breathing equipment, clearing your mask and what hand signals to use, you’ll be able to attempt these techniques in a training pool.

Following this will be the experience you’ve been waiting for, the descent into the incredible underwater world filled with an array of beautiful sea creatures. There’ll be several species of shark including the Sand Tiger Shark, Lemon Shark, Nurse Shark and over 1500 various other fish, mostly found in the Caribbean…I know it sounds amazing!!!!

You will conduct the dive with a fully qualified PADI dive instructor and after your experience there will be time to shower and change before collecting your certificate of attendance.  You should allow up to 5 hours for the whole experience, but the dive itself lasts 30 minutes.

The experience runs on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday and you can bring two spectators for free, any additional spectators will be charged an entrance fee. We recommend that you pre-book spectators to avoid disappointment. When you have completed your training your friends will have the unique opportunity to view you in the water through the aqua theatre which offers views into the aqua tunnel – one of the longest underwater tunnels at over 70m long.

Disabled toilet facilities and ramp are provided for spectators. Refreshments are not included; however they can be purchased in the Café area.

Once you pay for the experience, Virgin Experience will send a voucher and booking information to you or directly to the recipient, then you just need to check the information to make sure it’s accurate and book your experience date.
