New program allows guests to get up close and personal with some of nature’s most beautiful sea creatures
TORONTO, Aug. 9, 2016 /CNW/ – If you’ve ever wanted to swim with the sharks…now’s your chance. Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada’s new Discovery Dive program allows guests to get face to face with sharks, sea turtles, sawfish and more.
After a behind-the-scenes tour of the Aquarium’s life support systems, feeding and husbandry areas, certified divers are submerged into the water for a 30-minute guided tour of Dangerous Lagoon where they will have the opportunity to explore many different fish species along with magnificent tiger, sand and nurse sharks, moray eels, sawfish and sea turtles.
For less adventurous divers, Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada is also offering a new snorkeling experience in Ray Bay, which allows guests to swim among four species of stingrays and bonnethead sharks.
