Full description
The tropical lagoon snorkel offers you the opportunity to get close to sharks and rays in the deep water of Irukandji's natural style tropical lagoon.When you arrive at Irukandji you will be greeted by staff members who will guide you through the whole process - from learning how to interact safely with the animals, to providing you with all the equipment needed to enter the water and meet the animals. Your experienced guide will run through important safety information before guiding you gently into the deep water and showing you how to float on the surface whilst gazing down into the world below. See sharks and rays as they glide under, around and next to you. Reach out to pet them or snap incredible photos with your underwater camera. Stay immersed in this magical experience for 40 minutes while you follow the different animals around the lagoon. After snorkeling, in the shallows of the lagoon you will find yourself surrounded by sharks and rays of different sizes and species. Your guide will hand out food for them as they talk you through their different personalities, habits and needs. Marvel at their unique and affectionate natures and fall in love with each unique individual as they flap around your feet or swim into your lap, looking for attention. Outside of the water you're welcome to check out the different pools that house a variety of species of fish with specific food and information provided at each one. You will get to reach in and interact with the animals as they swim around in their aquatic homes. Every hour a knowledgeable guide will host an educational talk focusing on sharks, rays and marine conservation. They will help to dispel myths about these amazing creatures and offer you practical ways to help protect the oceans and its inhabitants. Afterwards you can rinse off under a warm shower and towel down before heading in for a cruise around the tropical aquarium, watching the clownfish flounce busily around the anenome and the lionfish proudly cruise around their home. Check out the souvenir shop for a large range of sustainable gifts, cute fluffy toys, snacks, cold drinks and hot coffee.
