Recently I went with a friend to do the Xtreme Shark Dive, it was an easy course with no experience and instructions were quick to get through! Before we knew it, we were geared up and in the training pool learning basic diving skills and hand signals before seeming us ready to take the leap into tank only 3 meters deep of course. When you're underwater you move as if you walking on the moon though it is advised not to go jumping cause if fall it hilarious and they will video and everyone in the public will also see you. Our instructors Sam and Porscha were outgoing, easy and so funny, they made the whole task easy and fun so I had no nerves getting into the tank. I would 10/10 recommend to anyone to do this fantastic experience. You get up close and personal to some great predators of the underwater world. And the photos they take underwater are worth every penny! Best experience so far, hot shower included...

Definitely one of the best experiences I've had! Biggest thanks to my instructors Sam & Portia for making the dive super easy when my friend & I are inexperienced scuba divers. The sharks were lingering me and so majestic. The gigantic sting ray came right on top of me. Something you might never experience in the open water! Definitely will do this again but only with Sam & Portia!

The company was easy to deal with and confirmed all aspects as we went. The Sydney aquarium staff were great a big shout out to Kris and Laurie as they did a brilliant job and ensured everything went smoothly. The two of them helped my daughter so much it was really refreshing the staff take so much pride in the work. Well done again and thank you for the experience, one I am sure to redo again.
