Travellers are invited to celebrate “Shark Week – which kicked off July 28 – with a chance to win a mini-vacation that includes diving with sharks in the only place it can be done in the midwest US.
The Out to Sea Shark Dive at Johnny Morris’ Wonders of Wildlife National Museum & Aquarium in Springfield, Missouri, is the centrepiece of the vacation. Guests will go underwater inside a metal cage and come face-to-face with sharks and other sea life in a huge aquarium. State-of-the-art air helmets allow divers to submerge without diver certification.
Also included in the prize are: One night at Angler’s Lodge, a lodge-themed hotel. Not eligible for holidays or holiday weekends; a $50 gift card to Hemingway’s Blue Water Cafe, a restaurant inside Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World; a $100 Bass Pro gift card that can be redeemed at the store in Springfield, the first and largest Bass Pro in the world; and admission for two to Wonders of Wildlife, an award-winning aquarium featuring thousands of live animals and educational displays.
