Sleeping With Sharks Offer At Paris Aquarium


A travel booking company is offering a free overnight stay at an underwater glass bedroom surrounded by 35 sharks at the Paris Aquarium.

Three lucky winners and their guests will be invited to stay at the shark infested aquarium by entering a free competition with Airbnb Ireland, explaining their reasoning as to why they would want to spend a night submerged in a tank with sharks.

In addition to its fearsome inhabitants, the tank contains 3 million liters (nearly 800,000 gallons) of water.

The sleepovers will take place on April 11, 12 or 13.sharks

Interested parties are invited to apply to win through a listing on Airbnb.
