It was extremely exciting and even if arrive a bit early then you can look at the Fairy Penguins, other marine life in small tanks. The big event at this place is the sharks and there is a tunnel for people to watch when you are diving. My son a novice diver enjoyed this event and the others who were nervous with us enjoyed it too. The certified divers taking you on the adventure are really great and knowledgeable as they are marine biologists who work with the sharks/turtles, etc.
safe, fun, very nice staff, good training and preparation, highly recommended
This was without a doubt one of the best experiences of my life! I dove about two weeks ago with dive instructor Laurie, and everything was flawless! I felt completely educated, safe, and like a total daredevil, all at the same time. I would wholeheartedly recommend this experience to anyone with a sense of adventure!!! Worth every penny!
Unable to have this experience because of a medical condition. However, Viator gave us a full refund! The Sea Life Sanctuary is a great facility, so we still enjoyed viewing the sea animals. And the staff was great--friendly and lots of energy.
Manly was great. Thia was our first dive. They gave exvellent instruction, top quality equipment and safery came firat! The experience to be so close to many sharks, rays and turtlea was mind blowing! This is a MUST for anyone visiting Australia.
Staff very friendly,and clearly cared about the animals. Son 19 doing the dive was confident in the water,and was the only one doing the dive at the early time. A lot of time spent underwater with the sharks extremely close. Much better than the Melbourne Aquarium.
Super fun! Would highly recommend if you are even possibly thinking about it!
It really is something, swimming underwater as one of these incredible creatures glides by. Everything I hoped it would be, and then some
Can't recommend this trip enough! Everything about it was brilliant... quite simply the best thing I did in Sydney!
My hubby said this was worth every cent. He thought the staff were great and the whole tour well organised. His experience with the sharks and other marine life was amazing. The photos and movie were wonderful too.
Excellent. I nearly wussed it, but the instructor was so patient and kind I managed to pull through. And I have had an extraordinary experience!

My Son is in Sydney on a walkabout ...as he was away for his Birthday I thought I would get him this experience for a treat, He loved it ...A birthday he will never forget...
Not nearly as scary as you think it would be. Those giant sharks only eat fish a foot long. They don't care about humans too much. Still it is an amazing experience. Well worth it.
Shark dive was amazing but Viator is crap - they tried to charge me an extra $75 for changing dates a month before the date even though their website lists that they cannot do that.. arggh! It also took them 2 weeks to respond. Anyways, I would recommend going directly through Oceanworld to book because it is a great experience.
This was my 3rd time doing the dive, once a year for the last 3 years and it was as great as ever. great instructors, friendly people and an out of this world experiance. I really recommend this even to those nervous about diving. the staff are fantastic, you wont have any problems at all !!

Will never forget this day ...huge sharks swimming straight past me ...the photos are just fantastic ...an experience everyone should try ...
I was really apprehensive before going ( I guess swimming with the sharks does that to people), but the staff were really friendly and sooo professional. After going through all the safety procedures again and again and practices them in the pool, I felt extremely safe and confident entering the aquarium. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and felt totally safe and relaxed the whole time. Highly recommend this experience.

Highly recommended and I would do it again, but I was not happy with the photos and DVD as I payed $60 for a DVD and there was nothing on it.

Ten foot grey nurse sharks and queen-bed-sized manta rays, there was a little bit of a rush.

This was one of the most adrenaline-pumping moments of our trip! My husband and I were truly impressed with the personnel at Manly, and with the ease of transportation to it via ferry. The guides made sure we were completely ready before going into the big tank. It was a load of fun! Memories and moments we will never forget.
