Shark Dive Xtreme is coming to SEA LIFE Sydney

If you had to describe yourself in a few words, would the terms ‘thrill-seeker’, ‘risk-taker, or ‘daredevil’ make the cut? The countdown is on, because in only eight weeks’ time, you could have the answer as Sea Life Sydney is launching the all-new Shark Dive Xtreme (SDX) experience - the only cage-less underwater shark dive in Sydney. The new experience seeks to find those who are brave enough to come face-to-face with some of the ocean’s most feared species!

Launching on 28th April, SDX will be an exhilarating experience and one of only a few experiences worldwide where you’ll be guaranteed an underwater encounter with sharks. With no previous diving experience required, SDX will make a daring diver out of anyone* Come face to face with sea turtles, massive stingrays, Port Jackson Sharks, Wobbegong Sharks and hundreds of other amazing sea creatures!

The 2.5 hour experience starts at $299 per person, and includes:

  • Attraction entry
  • Full diver training (to ensure everything goes swimmingly, of course)
  • 30 min oceanarium tank dive
  • All equipment (Divers can bring own mask and full length wetsuit)
  • De-brief and Certificate of completion

Underwater photos and video footage are also available for purchase at an additional cost.

Would you dare take up the challenge and live to tell the tale?



*SDX available to guests aged 14 years and over. All divers must also be able to speak English and have a reasonable degree of swimming ability. All terms and conditions available here.
