Bear Grylls Adventure unveils thrilling underwater dive experience

Bear Grylls Adventure Park in Birmingham has unveiled exciting plans for a one of a kind immersive dive experience. Thrill-seekers can snorkel or scuba dive through a giant megalodon jaw, past stunning coral and rockwork theming and into a maze of flooded compartments in a simulated ship wreck. From Autumn 2018, visitors will be able to explore this underwater world alongside aquatic creatures, including Blacktip Reef Sharks, Starry Pufferfish and Cownose Rays.

The Bear Grylls Adventure also announced an exciting new partnership with the Shark Trust, the leading UK-based shark conservation charity, which will see the adventure park donate a percentage of each and every dive to the Trust.

Paul Cox, Managing Director of the Shark Trust said: “It’s great for us to team up with The Bear Grylls Adventure for this new project. Getting involved in proactive solutions is what conservation is all about, and we’re absolutely committed at the Shark Trust in finding new ways to engage people with shark protection and preservation globally.”

“We’ve a long history of working with responsible aquariums. They can have a really positive impact on the conservation of sharks through quality education and acting as a connection between their millions of visitors and the challenges faced by wild animals. We’re really excited by this new venture”.

Bear Grylls added: “I can’t wait for guests to be able to immerse themselves in this unique underwater world. We are so proud to partner with the Shark Trust, to highlight the importance of shark conservation, to further education and to allow our visitors to really engage and understand these majestic creatures.”
