World’s first underwater Airbnb lets visitors sleep with sharks (VIDEO)

World’s first underwater Airbnb lets visitors sleep with sharks (VIDEO)
Now you, too, can ‘sleep with the fishes’ without the ...er… long term commitment. The world’s first underwater Airbnb is offering marine fans the chance to spend the night with 35 sharks.

Not for the faint-hearted, the sharkbait bedroom at Aquarium de Paris is submerged in 3 million liters of water and surrounded by a 360-degree transparent wall, giving guests the full ‘shark experience’.

Even better, you can stay for free. But as with most fish-related adventures, there’s a catch. The accommodation company is running a competition to let two guests spend one night from April 11 -13.

Airbnb will fly the winners to Paris for the “once-in-a-lifetime” experience, where guests can enjoy a private tour of the aquarium along with a romantic meal – with no word on whether they will be serving fish.

Hopefuls who want to enter the competition must submit a 50-550 word essay on why they deserve to sleep with the sharks, and must do so by April 3. Seems like a lot of work for something that will scar you for life.

House rules include: No selfies after dark (sharks don’t like the flash), no diving and no watching Jaws before the sleepover. Not even kidding.
