The Sunshine Coast’s only cage-less diving experience where you are guaranteed an underwater encounter with enormous sharks and rays is back from 10th December 2020!

SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast’s Shark Dive Xtreme experience is relaunching after a three-year hiatus, so thrill seekers can come face-to-fin with eight different shark species including three huge grey nurse sharks, grey reef sharks and wobbegong sharks.

The two-hour adventure takes you behind the scenes for a safety briefing and dive training before you take the plunge and find yourself inside the aquarium’s iconic Ocean Tunnel!
