BEHIND THE SCENES & GLASS BOTTOM BOAT TOUR

Hop Aboard & Explore Our Aquarium Behind the Scenes

The Behind the Scenes + Glass Bottom Boat Tour is the ultimate way to see all the action above the 2.2 million litre Oceanarium!

The Aquarium Behind the Scenes & Glass Bottom Boat Tour is one of the most unique Melbourne things to do and the ultimate way to see all the action above the 2.2 million litre Oceanarium!

Journey back of house and meet our resident family of stingrays that call the Oceanarium home. The highlight of the tour is seeing the massive stingrays pop up right next to you, as your SEA LIFE guide hand-feeds these beautiful, graceful and fascinating animals.

Then, it’s all aboard the Glass Bottom Boat! Glide above the 2.2 million litre Oceanarium, and get closer than ever before to sharks, a giant grouper and thousands of other amazing aquatic animals that call the Oceanarium home.

While touring behind the scenes, you will also see the aquarium’s food preparation area, vet lab, and dive zone. You might even meet one of our Aquarists as they go about their day.

  • Runs at 12:00pm & 1:00pm daily
  • Meet the stingrays, and watch your guide hand-feed the rays
