Three New Unique Experiences

02 May 2019 16:53:20

Three Exciting New Private Experiences!

SEA LIFE Melbourne has launched a suite of tailored services which promise to make a splash with guests wanting an extraordinary aquarium experience. Now you can surprise your loved one, friends or family with a private dinner surrounded by sea creatures, book a VIP tour with your own marine biologist, or pop the question with a unique and magical underwater proposal package.

Private Dining

Your romantic evening will kick off with an after-hours, self-guided tour of the aquarium, followed by an intimate dinner where you will have one of the aquarium’s spectacular zones all to yourselves. Enjoy a three course meal and unlimited beverages, making for a memorable dining experience with unparalleled underwater views!

There are three Private Dining packages to choose from, depending on your location choice. Opt to dine with an array of tropical fish or beautiful Weedy Sea Dragons, be transported to your private winter wonderland with the colony of sub-Antarctic penguins, or roll in the deep amongst majestic sharks and stingrays.

Details: Private dinners are hosted 6.00-8.45pm daily, and must be booked seven days in advance.

Price:  Silver Package $250pp, Gold Package $275pp, Platinum Package $300pp, Cocktail Upgrade Package $99pp.

Pricing based on 2-6 guests.  

Proposal Package

Planning to pop the big question in a unique and magical way?

SEA LIFE Melbourne’s new Proposal Package gives guests the opportunity to surprise their partner with a magical underwater proposal which leaves all the heavy lifting to us, ensuring all goes swimmingly! Whilst you focus on your loved one, professional divers will unveil a personalised proposal banner and a photographer will capture the romantic moment forever. Then it’s time to pop a celebratory bottle of sparkling wine and be merry!

Details: Available for day visits or during after-hours private dining experiences.

Pricing: From $499
