What is shark week?

Beginning on August 28th, Shark Week is a long established annual series aimed at educating and entertaining audiences about shark behaviours and natural habitats in a truly innovative way. It’s the Discovery Channel’s most anticipated summer event that shark geeks that world over dream of, and this new first-of-it’s-kind event is exclusive to Dubai. 

What can visitors expect?

Major attractions include a world’s first digital ‘shark dive,’ in which visitors enter a digital shark cage and experience Great White sharks circling a cage of divers. Situated under the hull of a research ship protruding from the wall of the Aquarium, the digital cage was designed exclusively by LG for the exhibit.

Next up is a 20 metre aquarium demi-tunnel, with huge LG LED screens where guests favourite sharks will be on display, swimming calmly but with potential surprises in store for visitors too!

The event takes place at the  Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo, check their website for more info.
