Get up close to giant stingrays, sharks and hundreds of amazing fish, without getting your hair wet! The Shark Walker experience at the Melbourne Aquarium offers visitors the chance to walk underwater, stepping into the 2.2 million litre Oceanarium, while breathing naturally with a custom-made Shark Walker helmet.
Your Shark Walker adventure begins as you arrive at the Melbourne Aquarium. Greeted by a friendly and experienced diving staff you will be provided with all the necessary equipment for the dive. Once you have geared up, it's time to set foot onto the ocean floor! Experience amazing views of sharks, colourful fish and huge stingrays.
In the company of a certified diving instructor this 45 minute tour doesn’t require any previous dive experience or training. The Shark Walker helmet allows you the chance to experience underwater views even more spectacularly than when traditionally scuba diving. All you have to do is bring bathers and a towel for an experience that you will never forget.
