Take the Plunge...

Dive with amazing sharks, giant stingrays and more... now at SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast!

Diving with sharks at SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast is an exhilarating experience, and one of only a few experiences worldwide where you're guaranteed an underwater encounter with sharks.

Our colony of Grey Nurse Sharks range in size to up to 3 metres, and when you do your shark dive with us, you get to enter their domain - without cages!

With NO PREVIOUS DIVING EXPERIENCE REQUIRED, you'll not only meet Grey Nurse Sharks but also scuba dive with other Sunshine Coast local marine life including massive stingrays (and we mean MASSIVE), Reef Sharks, Wobbegong Sharks and hundreds of amazing sea creatures!
