sharkThe Florida Aquarium has a new 30 minute experience, Shark Swim, which allows anyone, ages 9 and up, the option to swim with sharks, without having to be scuba-certified. Four swimmers at a time, using a pole, are kept just below the surface of the water, using a small scuba tank, regulator and flotation device.shark 2 The tank has over 1,600 fish which include sea turtles, sand tiger sharks, sting rays, and many more. Guests will start their way from the shallow side of the tank ending up at the deep side, surrounding by sharks. Aquarium staff remain nearby during the swim in case aid is needed. The experience was previously only open to certified scuba divers. At $100.00 for the experience, this is a cool way for non scuba divers to get introduced to diving.MORE
