Being scared has never been such fun! Honest.
Of course getting up close and personal with sharks would not normally be classed as fun if it were out in the open seas, but this swim with sharks is nothing as scary as that. Well maybe a little bit. It all depends how easily scared you are! But really there’s nothing to worry about.
That’s because it all takes place at Melbourne Aquarium and is completely safe and secure inside their famous 2.2 million litre tank. And oh yes, you won’t be swimming alone. You’ll have an expert diver with you, and you’ll be just like them in wetsuit, and full scuba gear.
In fact, your heart-stopping experience of a lifetime begins with a full SCUBA theory session before it’s time to put your theory into practice with an hour long pool session where you get to experience the underwater environment for the first time.
Then it's time for your shark swim to begin as you explore an exciting new world where marine creatures pass by and allow you to witness first-hand their daily lives.
There are nurse sharks, gill sharks, Port Jackson and gummy sharks as well as sting rays and a whole host of other fabulous marine life to enjoy.
Scary? Nah. In fact, we reckon this dive with sharks is an experience you will want to repeat again and again!
Cannot think of anyway it could be improved.
The were no lows. The entire experience was a high.
Learning to scuba dive the instructors were great and very reassuring. only lows were that i experience ear problems when going deep at the aquarium but the instructors were able to fix my problem and allow to continuing enjoying my experience highly recommend it.
It was a great new experience to learn the basics of scuba diving and of course to see all the marine creatures in as close to their natural environment as possible. Totally enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone.
I got this shark dive for my mate as a weird surprise. We looked on from inside the Aquarium at him. It was good and a great laugh to see him in the tank.
it was a fantastic experience and one I wont forget for some time. Really well managed by the team in the Melbourne Aquarium too.
Professional and efficient service throughout.
Great experience all round
