These apex predators are perfect company for those celebrating their birthday or any other special occasion throughout the year! The lucky recipient will join a qualified Shark Bay diving instructor to take part in an incredible Shark Encounter and feeding session with some of the world's most feared predators.

Coming face-to-face with large, potentially dangerous, species of sharks like the magnificent Dusky Whaler shark, the adrenaline is sure to be pumping while they're in the water. They will climb into the acrylic cage and be lowered into the Shark Lagoon with provided SCUBA diving equipment (with appropriate certification) or snorkel equipment.

If you're looking for the gift that truly thrills, this Shark Encounter at Sea World is more than fitting!
