An experience for everyone, whether you are a certified diver or have never breathed underwater before, you can take the plunge into the Cairns Aquarium Reef Tank!
If you’ve ever felt the adventurous urge to get up close and personal with sharks, it’s your lucky day. The Cairns Aquarium Reef Tank invites you to hop into the tank with the sharks and other hulking sea creatures, if you’re game enough to do it.
This diving experience is available to everyone, so whether you’re a fully certified scuba diver or you’ve never even snorkeled, there are no excuses. Kicking off at midday with a medical check to see if you’re dive-ready, you’ll then be taken through the SCUBA equipment and basics of breathing underwater. Once you’re (wet)suited up and feeling ready, it’s time to take on the tank.
Cairns Aquarium Reef Tank is packed with reef sharks, mega stingrays, Queensland groupers and heaps more marine wildlife that you wouldn’t usually be cosying up to. But for your 30 minute dive, you have a ‘mi casa es su casa’ arrangement with the sharks. Family and friends can watch you dive in the aquatic ecosystem from the other side of the tank, and as a bonus you can check out the rest of the marine life with all-day admission at the aquarium. You’re in for a powerful adrenaline rush and an experience you’ll never forget.
