This adventure includes admission into Irukandji and our famous shallows encounter (please purchase entry pass), wading into the lagoons whilst feeding the animals on our sandy beaches. PLUS it includes wetsuit hire PLUS a pair of 'wear and keep' souvenir socks PLUS a complete guided 30 minute Snorkelling Encounter with our huge tawny nurse and white-tipped reef sharks!
Wetsuit hire (normally $10), 'wear & keep' souvenir socks to wear in the water (normally $5), are both are included in this experience. Visitors are now welcome to enter the lagoons with bare feet if preferred. The animals may be curious about toes, so wearing the socks is recommended for anybody feeling nervous. Wearing socks in the water is safe for the animals and creates a camouflage for visitors pink toes which can look similar to squid.
Swim out over the deep section of the tropical lagoon with the help of your experienced guide, surrounded by the animals and looking down at the huge (3m) sharks snoozing on the bottom. Suitable for experienced or beginners (must be able to swim without assistance) it includes all the equipment needed and hot showers are available afterwards.

Afterwards the included Shallows Encounter in wetsuits is the perfect opportunity for visitors to immerse themselves in the water of the sandy beaches surrounded by many curious friendly Sharks & Rays. Stepping into the water with the them brings a whole new level of excitement and fear, the animals display their endearing personalities & steal the hearts of the visitors they meet.
