Have you ever wanted to swim with sharks or do a cage dive? When you think about where you can do this activity, you would normally think about Hawaii or Australia maybe? When we were in Hawaii we tried to do a shark dive but it was not available in Maui, you could only do it in Honolulu.  You can now cage dive here in Texas.

People think you have lost your mind when you mention swimming with sharks. Because only crazy people swim with sharks right? I don't know that I would swim in open water with sharks but I would definitely do a cage dive.

The Texas State Aquarium in Corpus Christi now gives you the opportunity to do a cage dive with sharks. Of course, you can watch and explore the shark's world behind the glass or jump right in. You will go underwater in a cage to admire six sandbar sharks, along with a guide of course along and multiple species of fish, including stingrays, barracudas, and eels!


The adventure is only $99.00 a person. That's very reasonably priced as compared to adventures at other places.

You must be 8 years of age or older to go on this encounter, everyone 8-12 years old must be accompanied by an adult.

The Texas State Aquarium is in Corpus Christi. The Texas State Aquarium offers so many adventures.
