Never scuba-dived before? No problem!

Shark Dive Xtreme is a 2.5-3 hour experience, 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 before booking. 

Each guest will take part in a 90-minute introductory briefing and a 30-minute diving experience to go face-to-fin with sharks, rays and more! 

Shark Dive Xtreme runs on selected dates, with three timeslots available to choose from per day. Each timeslot can accommodate up to 5 people - so pre-booking is essential.
