VIP Shark Feeding Experience

Shark feed experience

£50 for up to 2 people.

Are you brave enough to come face to fin with our amazing black tip reef sharks? Step up to our ocean tank and enjoy a fishy lunch date with these jaw-some creatures.

Package includes:

  • Priority entry into SEA LIFE Manchester on the day of your feed.
  • Access to the top of our stunning ocean tank.
  • The chance to feed our black tip reef sharks.
  • A trained aquarist on hand to tell you all about the incredible sharks who we care for.

What is the VIP Experience?

This VIP Experience allows 2 people to assist our animal care team in feeding our black tip reef sharks. This will take place at the top of our ocean tank, an area not open to the public. The cost of the experience also includes entry into the main aquarium.

 

What will I do?

You will get to access to top of our ocean tank, where you will get amazing views of the creatures who live in here.

You will then be provided with gloves, a padded mat to kneel on and long tweezers with which to give the sharks their food. Their diet consists of fish, which you will pick up with the tweezers and dip into the water to attract the sharks. 

A member of our animal care team will be on hand to assist you and teach you all about these amazing creatures, their diet and habitats, and the schemes SEA LIFE have in place to help protect them. 

You will also be able to explore all the other amazing creatures we care for in the centre before and after your feeding experience.
