If you are on Sydney’s north side and looking for an adrenalin hit, they don’t come much better than hopping into a tank of sharks without a cage with Manly Shark Dive Xtreme.

Shark Dive Xtreme at Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary is one of the few places in the world where you are guaranteed an underwater encounter with sharks – the resident colony of Grey Nurse Sharks range in size from a metre to three metres and they all have those scary thin sharp teeth…

… and that’s the thing – because they have those scary thin sharp teeth, people thought they were maneaters and almost hunted them to extinction. They are still highly endangered with only about 500 left off the entire coastline. While the teeth are thin and sharp, they aren’t capable of tearing flesh. Grey Nurse Sharks are fish-eaters and those rows of teeth are the perfect design for grabbing slippery fish.

When you are in the tank and have passed the ‘wow’ factor of being with sharks in their habitat, take time to look around and enjoy the hundreds of fish, turtles and massive manta rays. This isn’t just an experience, it is a lifetime memory.

Below is a video teaser of what to expect, here's the official website and if you are visiting Sydney's north side, Rydges North Sydney can look after all your accommodation needs.
