The Shark Cage experience, will have you snorkelling with the sharks in cage that is submerged within the predator tank - home to School, Sand Tiger, Wobbegong and Broadnose Sevengill sharks. You are guaranteed to have a close encounter of the shark kind, every time. 
Through the cage's clear Perspex bottom you can marvel at sharks, stingrays and other fish from New Zealand's coastal waters swimming below, or past the mesh walls of the cage - often only feet away.

The experience takes approximately 1 hour, 15 minutes of which are spent snorkelling with the sharks. Prior to taking the plunge you will get a behind-the-scenes peek at Kelly Tarlton's before being briefed for your encounter. You will also receive a memory card containing underwater videos from your dive at the end of your experience.
