Shark Dive Xtreme2

Take the Plunge...

Sydney’s most exhilarating experience is back this summer!  

Get your adrenaline pumping and take the plunge in one of the most thrilling animal encounters in Australia. Shark Dive Xtreme is a rare opportunity to get closer than ever to our incredible Grey Nurse Sharks, Port Jackson Sharks, Wobbegong Sharks, as well as giant Stingrays, and many more amazing sea creatures... all without a cage! 

 

Never scuba-dived before?

No problem! Shark Dive Xtreme is suitable for first time divers with no previous diving experience required. This experience is suitable for ages 14+ and a reasonable degree of swimming ability is required to participate. Please ensure you check the restrictions and medical requirements on the SEA LIFE website prior to booking.  

Shark Dive Xtreme runs on selected dates, with two timeslots available to choose from. Each timeslot can accommodate up to 8 people, with two dive groups and a maximum of 4 people per dive group – so pre-booking is essential.
