Diving with the Sharks



At 10am everyday at the National Aquarium of New Zealand you can observe fun and frolics in the Pania Reef tank when ‘Daring Dan’ the diver takes to the depths in a ‘feeding frenzy’ with his fishy friends.
 
He will ask you questions by way of signs, maybe he will dance, do acrobatics, ride a bike underwater, lie down and blow bubbles or just generally ‘muck about’!
 
He really enjoys himself, as do all the children watching – the fishy residents don’t seem to mind his antics either.
 
So don’t miss the ‘Feeding Frenzy’ at 10am everyday at the National Aquarium – just normal admission prices, no extra charge for the show.
 
The National Aquarium where it’s fun for absolutely everyone.

Take the plunge with the Sharks and Stingrays!
 
If you are a certified diver, come and take the plunge in our beautiful oceanarium. Eyeballing a seven gill shark, having a stingray flap over your shoulder or getting up close and personal to feed a kahawhai or snapper are all part of the programme.
