Get up close and personal with our sharks over Easter

Sharks have been around for 450 million years – long before the first dinosaurs. They have survived two mass extinctions and have always played an important role in our oceans/marine life. Experience these amazing sea creatures at close quarters over Easter.

Fossils show that of all animals living today sharks are those that have been in existence the longest, having populated our oceans for over 450 million years. This makes them some of the oldest creatures on the planet – and one of the few groups of animals to survive the mass extinction events that killed and ended the development of many animals that used to inhabit the planet. Even the Permian–Triassic extinction event, which wiped out 95% of all marine life, could not stop the sharks. And nothing can stop National Aquarium Denmark – Den Blå Planet from showcasing these amazing creatures over Easter.

Close Contact with Sharks and Sea Otters

Close Contact with Sharks and Sea Otters is your chance to meet the animals that live behind the aquarium glass and inside the enclosures. Here, you will be able to feed and interact with the animals and immerse yourself in their world as never before.
