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.

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

You're accompanied by an instructor throughout the experience, including explaining how to use the equipment and dive safely, and doing some training in a little pool attached to the aquarium.

There go through a training video with you and safety instructions and then take you down and get you changed up ready.
