What you can expect

Feel the unparalleled sensation of swimming with an apex predator during this cage-free shark dive at SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast. Your experience begins with a briefing and comprehensive scuba dive training session in their Learner Diver Tank to ensure you're ready for the plunge. Once you're comfortable with the scuba equipment and breathing underwater, you'll dip into the ocean tunnel. Take a deep breath as you come face-to-face with grey nurse sharks up to three meters in length, as well as an abundance of other marine life like wobbegong and reef sharks, giant stingrays and colourful reef fish. There are few experiences world-wide where you're guaranteed to get up close to these monsters of the deep. If diving with sharks is on your to do list, make it happen with SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast Aquarium. Once you've completed your dive with sharks, take your time exploring the rest of the aquarium.
