If you have ever wondered what it would be like to share the water with a shark then this is the place to do it! You don't have to be a certified diver (can even be a first time experience!) and the price included all...More

The venue itself is decent enough, the highlight being the tunnel where you can watch the fish and sharks swimming from above but other than that, there's not a huge amount to see. We went to the cafe for lunch we ordered 2 x fish...More
