What You Can Expect

Shark Diving Xtreme in Sydney

Shark Diving Xtreme in Sydney

Start your shark dive by making your way to Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary at the designated time,

After checking in, meet your expert diving guide and receive a safety briefing. Your guide provides all the necessary gear for your dive, and there are changing rooms with hot showers where you can get ready. Then, begin with an introductory dive course that teaches you all the skills you need for your shark dive. Learn about the grey nurse sharks and other animals in the aquarium before taking the plunge into the tank.

Expect the entire experience to last about 2.5 hours, including about 30 minutes in the shark tank waters. Observe the toothy yet non-aggressive grey nurse sharks in addition to three other shark species, plus stingrays, fish and green sea turtles that swim around you, a great way to see these amazing marine creatures in a safe environment.

You are guaranteed clear visibility and perfect conditions in the giant oceanarium, which holds more than one million gallons (four million liters) of water. Learn about the habits of the sharks and other fish and be amazed by sharing the waters with them.

Your guide ensures that you stay safe throughout your experience. Basic SCUBA training is provided so that you can delve into the underwater habitat of our deep sea-friends, with no experience necessary.

While you are diving, your family and friends can watch you from the acrylic tunnel that runs through Shark Harbour. Ask them to snap pictures of you — an incredible souvenir of your swim with the sharks.

After your Shark Dive Xtreme experience, enjoy seeing the rest of the exhibits at Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary on your own, with general admission to the aquarium included in your Shark Dive package.
