Top Tips

Have you ever wanted to see sharks up close? You can now have a close encounter with endangered Grey Nurse Sharks on a shark dive at the Sydney Aquarium and no experience is necessary! In a safe environment, you will receive scuba training before your dive into the 1.5 million litre oceanarium. After the pool session, your guide will give you a 30 minute tour of the shark tunnels to see these fascinating creatures in their environment. The Grey Nurse Sharks range from 1-3 metres and are free to swim around you in the oceanarium. There are no cages to separate you- you will be in their domain under the watchful guidance of your scuba dive guide. You will encounter 4 species of sharks, including 5 Grey Nurse Sharks as well as a number of sea turtles, huge stingrays and fish.

The experience lasts 2.5 hours including the scuba diving safety briefing and time in the water with the marine creatures. All dive gear and wetsuits are provided but you are welcome to bring your own mask and wetsuit if you prefer. All divers must be able to speak English and have a reasonable level of fitness and swimming ability. You must also pass the scuba diving medical check.

Vanezya Ravenzka 10 hours ago Definitely one of the best experiences I've had! Biggest thanks to my instructors Sam & Portia for making the dive super easy when my friend & I are inexperienced scuba divers. The sharks were lingering me and so majestic. The gigantic sting ray came right on top of me. Something you might never experience in the open water! Definitely will do this again but only with Sam & Portia!

The company was easy to deal with and confirmed all aspects as we went
Colin Statton 2 months ago

The company was easy to deal with and confirmed all aspects as we went. The Sydney aquarium staff were great a big shout out to Kris and Laurie as they did a brilliant job and ensured everything went smoothly. The two of them helped my daughter so much it was really refreshing the staff take so much pride in the work. Well done again and thank you for the experience, one I am sure to redo again.

This experience is great for first-time divers
Cassondra Miller 5 months ago

This experience is great for first-time divers. They go through all safety procedures to ensure your comfortable and have knowledge. Sharks are well fed and never once did I feel uneasy. They are curious, and they will swim real close to you! As a more experienced diver, I was hoping to freely swim but understand safety precautions. You’re more stationary in the tank guided along but still cool!

The instructors were positive
Pavol Cabada 6 months ago

The instructors were positive, friendly and offered us proper instructions for a positive experience. Contrary to the general fear of sharks, the sharks seemed to be friendly, calm and well fed. I appreciated the guidance of instructors when maneuvering in the pool and video recording. I recommend the experience further.

Get up and close with the endangered Grey Nurse Sharks at the Sydney Aquarium. No experience is necessary!
