Do You Have What it Takes to Dive with the Sharks? GCA Blog

« All Posts »

Happy Monday!

In honor of this past weekend, the GCA’s 2nd annual Shark Weekend, we wanted to give you a special Dive-In Movie Monday! We have many interactive programs here at the GCA, with one being our Feet First: Dive with the Sharks program.

Open water SCUBA certified divers have the chance to dive with the sharks in our Shark Exhibit, which holds 250,000 gallons of water, and is home to 34 species of sea creatures – among them being four species of sharks, two species of stingrays, and moray eels. The overall experience will entail a tour of the dive platform, a fish identification session, one dive in the shark exhibit, use of all dive equipment needed, a souvenir item, a photograph of the dive, admission into the Aquarium for the diver and one viewing guest, and a souvenir shark tooth…if you find one! Lovers of sharks and all creatures underwater will enjoy the opportunity to be up close with these mysterious giants.
