Take the plunge with Shark Dive Xtreme for the opportunity of a lifetime!...

Take the plunge with Shark Dive Xtreme for the opportunity of a lifetime!

Come face to face with huge critically endangered Grey Nurse Sharks, sea turtles, stingrays and a vast array of other marine life. Experienced instructors will prepare you by teaching the basics of SCUBA diving in the classroom and training pool so you feel confident before meeting the sharks.

The 2.5 hour experience includes a 30 minute dive in Shark Harbour, the 4 million litre ocean tank. Friends and family are able to watch all the action from the underwater viewing tunnel.

Take the challenge a step further with Shark Feed Xtreme, a unique opportunity to be in the tank to watch the sharks and fish being fed.

Shark Dive Xtreme is great for first time and experienced divers. All equipment is supplied, just bring swimmers and a towel. Optional in-water photos are available to view and purchase following the dive.

Bookings are essential. Medical restrictions apply.

My partner bought this for Christmas. We are both guides ourselves and love doing activities outdoors and in the wild. We have some experience in diving but this was still a new adventure for us diving with sharks, rays and giant turtles up close. All over, this was an awesome adventure not to be missed. We would recommend to anyone:... More

I had a wonderful experience after a mix up with my booking from adrenaline but the manager there fletch made it possible for me to go on a later dive and gave me the photo package to make up for the stuff up. Being up close to a 3 metre shark with 3 rows of very sharp teeth was amazing... More

This was the best experience I've ever done. The dive guide was so nice & attentive. I was nervous & the guides were so good & patient. One of the guides even lent me his mask because mine was leaking water. I loved this experience & would HIGHLY recommend it. I took my 3 grown sons (18, 23, 25) who... More

Where else in the world will you get to pay to support animals who need rescue but also get to dive and swim with them in a controlled environment? This is an ABSOLUTE while must do in Sydney. It's great for the whole family and thrilling as well! It was so cool to have an enormous sting ray swim over... More

After going Sky diving last year, I knew that the next thing I had to go was go under water. I was nervous on my way to do this but when I got there I was more at ease. The instructors I had - Harry and Alex - were terrific, very friendly and helpful when giving training on how to... More

It's been my dream to swim with sharks ever since I was a little girl, but until now I hadn't had the opportunity/guts to do it. Turning 30, starting on the old bucket list and taking a trip to Australia meant I couldn't justify leaving it any longer - so figuring that an aquarium has got to be a safer... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Manly
A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants as well, especially along the family-oriented areas like Shelly Beach. An excellent way to experience Manly is to rent a bike and explore the dedicated bike paths and off road trails. The North Head National Park is another must-see. Located on the southern tip of Manly, North Head National Park offers great bushwalks and panoramic views of the city.
