Full description
Enter the domain of Grey Nurse Sharks and take a shark dive experience at SEA LIFE Melbourne with a cage. Enjoy a guided tour of the shark tunnels, a safety briefing, SCUBA training, and a 30-minute dive in Shark Harbor, surrounded by sharks of up to 3 meters (10 feet) in length.

Check-in on arrival and meet your friendly, expert instructor. Go behind the scenes, take a safety briefing, and make sure you are fully prepared for the experience. Learn how to safely use the gear, complete a medical assessment, and enter the class-walled training pool. Practice for your experience whilst admiring the marine life on the other side of the glass.

Next, the real adventure starts! Begin your shark dive alongside your expert divemaster and get up close to Grey Nurse Sharks, Blacktip Reef Sharks, Sandbar Whalers, Largetooth Sawfish, Rays, Groupers, various species of Cod, and lots more. Pose for photos and videos as these huge creatures of the deep swim past you.

After approximately 30 minutes in the oceanarium, you’ll be safely floated to the surface and assisted out of your gear. Head off for a well-deserved hot shower, then review the incredible images taken during the experience (available for purchase).
