Shark Diving, Shark Feed Dive - Sydney
Diving with sharks and viewing them up close is a fascinating experience, which leaves you in awe of these beautiful marine creatures. By booking onto the shark feed dive, you will be underwater with the sharks during a feeding session. Imagine being just metres away from 3.5m sharks as they are hand fed by the aquarists. During the shark feed dive you will be standing in an open cage while the aquarists hand feed different species of sharks, as well as giant turtles, stingrays and fish. What a view!
The shark feed dive is suitable for first time divers as the session starts with a full scuba diving briefing, shark awareness course and pool skills session. Experienced divers will benefit from the opportunity to refresh their skills. The instructors give personalised tuition, ensuring everyone is confident with the basic skills and commands before entering the oceanarium. With the briefing and skills session completed, it’s time to enter the 5 million litre oceanarium tank. Once in the tank you will experience a 40-minute dive viewing the shark feed. Family and friends are welcome to watch and take photos from the viewing tunnel.
Finish off your experience by checking out the photographic evidence of your latest adventure! Take the time to wander about the rest of the aquarium and appreciate the many sea creatures and animals on show including some of Australia’s deadliest reptiles. The shark feed dive takes up to three and a half hours to complete, with a maximum of 2 divers per session.
