What you can expect

Conjure your inner daredevil, and confront those scaly suspicions head (or fin) on. This adrenaline-filled experience ensures serious bragging rights among your buddies. Take the plunge into the Oceanarium, and swim—cage-free—among Grey Nurse sharks, and other extreme creatures of the sea.

Considered by some as the ocean’s scariest predator, this up-close-and-personal peek stands to 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 colorful fish, creative-looking crustaceans, and the smooth-moving, toothy machines that quite possibly tormented your childhood. Before you panic—consider the following fact: these sleek creatures are some of the oldest animals on the planet—trolling 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 pals upon your resurface.
