Enter to Win a One-Night Stay in Airbnb’s Underwater Room Surrounded by Sharks

By: | April 2nd, 2016


Yeah, this is a big ole nope for me, but if you and your significant other are interested in spending the night in an underwater bedroom courtesy of Airbnb, please keep reading.

Airbnb is holding a contest to win a one-night stay for two in an underwater room in the Aquarium de Paris, which will be surrounded by sharks.

And not just a few sharks, 35 sharks, which is enough for me to pump the brakes on even thinking about entering the contest.

The one-night stay is being offered on either April 11th, 12th, or 13th and requires an essay from contestants to be submitted no later than tomorrow, April 3rd.

You can enter for your chance to win the contest here.



Just about anyone in the world is qualified to participate in the contest, as long as you are at least 18 and in relatively good shape.

I say this because the combined weight of the two guests in the underwater room cannot exceed 419 pounds.

As for the shark tank’s underwater room itself…

It is 33 feet deep, circular, with a 360-degree view of the sharks, not to mention the fact that the room is submerged in three million liters of water.

Freediver Fred Buyle will be on hand for entertainment purposes, but as far as going to the bathroom, it looks like you’re on your own in the water.

Good luck with that one!
