scuba diving in an oceanarium

9 December 2017 10.00 – 13.00   10:00 - 13:00

Our plan is to do some scuba diving in an oceanarium with real sea creatures!

The oceanarium is home to tropical sea creatures, with several types of sharks, batfish, mantas, barracudas, turtles, triggerfish, gropers, Napoleons and other types of reef fish – over 5.000 types in total! You will swim through transparent tunnels going over the corridors full of Oceanarium visitors. It is a very unusual experience to be in a seemingly familiar sea environment but being able to see both the underwater world and the people on the other side of the glass looking at you (go ahead, wave hello to them!).

Just in one dive, you will be able to see more than in a whole week of doing a regular diving trip to a sea or an ocean.

The Oceanarium dives will be available both to certified divers and beginners in the intro regime.

This is a very interesting family adventure where half of the family can be diving and the other half watching them, and then they can swap and experience the other part of the fun!

Price list:

For Dive Masters and Instructors – RUB 6,000

For certified divers – RUB 7,000

Camera pass – RUB 1,000

A ticket to the Oceanarium to watch through the tunnel how your friends dive (without diving yourself) – RUB 1,500


Water temperature is 25-26⁰C.

There are only 6 spaces available for those who want to dive. The amount of people admitted to watch is unlimited. :)
