    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Sea Life Sydney Aquarium, Aquarium Pier Darling Harbour, Sydney, New South Wales 2000 Australia

    Our colony of Grey Nurse Sharks range in size from 1 to 3 metres, and when you dive with us, you get to enter their domain –without cages! In the wild, Grey Nurse Shark populations are protected and in serious decline. Captive populations and breeding programs are very important in learning more about these amazing creatures. Dive in with Murdoch & Freckles, the Grey Nurse Sharks who were both born at SEA LIFE attractions in Australia, and have now found a home here at SEA LIFE Sydney.

    On your dive you’ll also meet other Sydney local marine life including sea turtles, huge stingrays (and we mean HUGE), Port Jackson Sharks, Wobbegong Sharks and hundreds of amazing sea creatures!

    Duration: 2 hours

    Loved having the experience for my birthday!! It was full of information and lots of time in the water. Definitely recommend doing this with her your friends and family but just as fantastic by yourself. Service was great and after spent time at the aquarium.

    This dive was one of the coolest experiences of my life, and I've done a lot of cool stuff. At one point, 3 sharks were all swimming towards me, and I could just hear the theme song to Jaws in my head. All of the staff members were friendly and knowledgable, and they trained us

    We booked this experience on the spur of the moment and have never scuba dived anywhere before. The team at Sea Life were extremely knowledgeable. They took us from complete novices to being able to survive underwater with about an hour of training. We then went into the main
