Being scared has never been such fun!  Honest. 

Of course, getting up close and personal with sharks would not usually 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 on how easily scared you are!  But there’s nothing to worry about.

That’s because it all takes place at Melbourne Aquarium and is entirely 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 a wetsuit and full scuba gear.

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 marine 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 stingrays and a whole host of other fabulous marine life to enjoy.

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.
