What You Can Expect

Shark Dive Experience at SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium

Dive with Sharks at Melbourne Aquarium

The shark dive at SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium is an exhilarating experience that allows you to get up close and personal with the amazing marine life of Australia's oceans. Make your way to the aquarium in the early afternoon, where you'll check in and learn the exact time of your dive. Attend a 1-hour safety training to meet your guide, learn about the technical aspects of the dive and get an overview of the aquarium's layout and inhabitants. No prior SCUBA experience is required.

When it's time for your dive, gear up with a wetsuit, mask and oxygen tank and splash into the 2.2 million-liter Oceanarium. An expert guide and no more than three other divers will accompany you to ensure a safe and personalized experience. You’ll receive a regulated stream of oxygen through a breathing tube during the 30-minute dive. 

Feel the rush of swimming within reach of nurse sharks, giant stingrays, sevengill sharks, and sea turtles. Wave to your friends and family on the other side of the glass for an unbeatable photo op.

Enjoy time either before or after your guide to explore the rest of the top-rated aquarium, which features beautifully designed habitats representing the diverse ecosystems of Australia. See playful penguins, mesmerizing jellies, huge saltwater crocodiles and the largest seahorse exhibit in the world.

Definitely a must do whilst in Melbourne. Great experienced and friendly staff take you on an ultimate dive in the aquarium. The whole experience is amazing and the fish, sharks and stingrays in the tank are awesome. This is something that once you have done you just want to do again. GREAT FUN

It was great! The staff were very thorough with safety and making sure we felt comfortable with the equipment in and out of the water. The staff treated the sealife with respect and it was a wonderful thing to be a part of.
