Dubai, UAE; June 17, 2013: While thousands of visitors gaze in awe at the aquatic diversity of Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo in The Dubai Mall, you can be among the more adventurous, exploring the aquarium by choosing from array of diving experiences.

Emaar Retail’s popular leisure attraction has added several new diving experiences that will appeal to all. Visitors seeking an adrenaline rush can sign up for the PADI Scuba Diver Course, the PADI Scuba Diver Course Upgrade or the Sharkwalker experience. An underwater GoPro camera has also been launched that will add to the delight of visitors.

Gordon White, General Manager of Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo, said: “We offer a unique diving environment and tailored experiences to fit every visitor profile, while continuously introducing new concepts to enable our visitors to better appreciate the marvels of the aquatic world.  The latest attractions will appeal not only to diving experts but also to beginners as well as those seeking different leisure activities.”

The PADI Scuba Diver Course offers the internationally recognised PADI certification to anyone fit to dive and above the age of 10 years through two days of training, all under the supervision of PADI professionals. Those who have already completed the course can enhance their skills with PADI Scuba Diver Course Upgrade, for more in-depth training in just one day.

For visitors who prefer not getting their hair wet and avoid training, but still want to dive in the aquarium for a close encounter with sharks and rays, the Sharkwalker is the best bet. It allows up to two participants to submerge more than two meters in the shark cage, while breathing naturally in a custom made helmet. There are no restrictions on the participants in flying the day before or after taking the Sharkwalker experience, which adds to the convenience of overseas visitors to the mall.

With the launch of the underwater GoPro camera, diving experiences can now be captured for posterity. Visitors can ask their dive master to film them with the advanced camera and receive 20 to 30 minutes of raw footage of their dive, Cage Snorkeling or Sharkwalker experience.

For bookings and for more information, visitors can e-mail dives@thedubaiaquarium.com or call 04 342 2993.
