Rated 5 out of 5 by An awesome experience! Really well organised, and a fun and safe experience for beginners. The instructors were professional and at the same time good fun to work with. The experience itself was extraordinary! 6 May 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by good introduction to diving This was my first diving experience and was pretty excited to jump in at the aquarium with the sharks and other big fish.At the same time i was nervous leading up to the adventure but the staff at the introduction made me feel more relaxed about the dive.The safety procedures during the 'learn to dive' session gave me all the confidence that this was going to be a great experience.We descended to the bottom of the tank and posed for photos and waved to our family and friends on the other side of the glass.Now i was really rearing to go and to swim with the animals ,however this is pretty much where we stayed .Realising that this was going to be the extent of our dive, I started to feel a little dissapointed as i was under the impression that we would swim around the aquarium with the animals.Overall I was happy with the experience however I think ,value for money ,might do better elsewhere. 28 April 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good experience...but probably not worth the money. Had a good time at the aquarium, the staff overall were friendly and proffessional. Felt like I was being rushed alot of the time especially when my dive time was unexpectantly moved forward 2 hours and I was trying to organise my friends to come to the aquarium earlier to see me dive, the instructors were a bit impatient. The sharks, stingrays and other fish were amazing to see up close with most of them coming within a couple of metres. There wasn't much to the dive, it was pretty much just sinking to the bottom of the tank (about 2-3 metres) and sitting there for 15minutes while the sharks and stuff swam around. I was dissapointed that we didn't get to go into the deeper section, I was told that there wasn't much to see down there, however when I got to look down into that area of the tank there was plenty of activity going on down there. I have to say that if I had paid for this experience and not used a gift voucher I wouldn't have been as impressed. 11 March 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Totally awesome Feel like an alien on planet Earth. A unique perspective on life under the water. Could reach out and touch the sharks and fish. They were just as curious about us. Staff were there always reassuring with a guiding hand. Thanks for a great afternoon :) . 21 February 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely amazing! Not only were the staff at the aquarium fantastic, but the dive itself was incredible. It really couldn't have been better and I highly recommend it. 16 December 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great experience The shark dive was a great experience. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. The only downside was that you didn't really get a great deal of time with the sharks, the majority of time was spent with the sting rays etc away from the main area where all the sharks were. 19 November 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 It was a great experience and I would recommened it to anyone! 20 August 2012
