Come to Kelly Tarlton's SEA LIFE Aquarium for Discovery Channel Shark Week from 24th November - 9th December 2012 and enjoy a range of exciting, interactive family activities to raise awareness about the plight of sharks.

Watch our shark feeds and talks at 2.30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays to learn all about sharks including their extra senses, their unique breeding, and loads of other cool facts!

Take part in our shark colouring competition to win the ultimate face-to-face encounter with sharks in our Shark Dive Xtreme and a dive in our shark tank or take the plunge in our shark cage for a chance to snorkel with these amazing creatures.

Get involved with our global SEA LIFE campaign to ban shark-finning and protect these mis-understood marine animals. Discover more about the threats to sharks, as well as some jawsome sharky facts with our Shark Week Quiz Trail.

With 29 sharks in total and 6 different species of sharks on site, including the carpet shark, school, Sandtiger, Broadnose Sevengill and wobbegong, Kelly Tarlton's SEA LIFE Aquarium can teach you all about the various species of sharks in our waters.

Kelly Tarlton's SEA LIFE Aquarium is passionate about raising awareness, and is proud to support Discovery Channel's 'Shark Week'.
