Shark Dive Xtreme

Check out Shark Dive Xtreme at SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium - home of Melbourne's only shark dive experience!

Guaranteed Shark Encounters!

Shark Dive Xtreme at SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium offers a unique opportunity to come face-to-face with huge sharks, stingrays and more!

 

General Information

SCUBA training is provided so that you can delve into the underwater habitat of our deep-sea friends, with no experience necessary whilst your friends and family* watch from our underwater viewing tunnel.

The experience lasts for 1 hour and 30 minutes, consisting of briefings, in-water training and 30 minutes in the water with the sharks and other amazing marine animals.

And the best bit? No SCUBA Diving experience is required! Simply select the 'Non Certified' dive when booking if you don't have a diving qualification.

*Friends and family can receive a 20% discount on adult & child admission on the day of the booked dive.
