Take the plunge: SeaWorld in Orlando, Florida has introduced a Sharks Deep Dive during which visitors can get into the water with 58 sharks for 30 minutes. Two guests at a time don wetsuits and climb into a cage, which is submerged in the 25-degree Celsius water and then pulled along a track running the length of the 40-metre aquarium. Meanwhile diners at Sharks Underwater Grill will be able to watch your close encounter with the sharks, the largest being 2.7 metres long and weighing 140kg. This experience to brag about costs US$125 (HK$974) for snorkellers, plus another US$25 to rent scuba equipment if you're certified to dive. The price includes two days' admission to the park, a souvenir T-shirt and a booklet about sharks. Participants must be 10 years or older (tel:  363 2380; www.seaworld.org/edprograms ).
