Diving with the Sharks

Can there be anything crazier than this? Diving with the sharks that have nearly 300 sharp teeth and can tear anything to pieces within minutes is a crazy thought already.But Dubai has made this possible. You can actually dive with the Sand Tiger Sharks at the Dubai Mall Aquarium & Underwater Zoo.

Even non-swimmers and non-certified divers can dare to have a close look at the sharks in their habitat. Such people only need to take a short training course with the instructors. The entire exercise is strictly under the supervision of instructors and dive masters.
