What you can expect
Conjure up your inner daredevil and confront those scaly creatures head (or fin) on. This adrenalin-filled experience ensures serious bragging rights among your mates. Take the plunge into the Oceanarium, and swim—cage-free—among Grey Nurse sharks, and other extreme creatures of the sea.
Considered by some to be the ocean’s scariest predator, this up-close-and-personal peek may change your mind. Meet your instructor, suit up and participate in an introductory scuba class, to ensure you’re calm, cool and comfortable upon diving into deeper waters.
As you descend, observe colourful fish, creative-looking crustaceans and the smooth-moving, toothy machines that quite possibly tormented your childhood. Before you panic – consider this: these sleek creatures are some of the oldest animals on the planet – inhabiting shallow waters for more than 400 million years. Watch in wonder while sharks swim about their aqua arena, and anticipate the look of shock and serious awe from your pals when you resurface.
