Australia is probably the country in the world with the most diversified shark diving possibilities. You can do everything from a morning tank shark dive in an aquarium in Sydney or Melbourne to a several-day live-aboard Great White Shark dive from Adelaide or Port Lincoln. The easiest way to try shark diving is in an aquarium. Australia has several places where it is possible.
The best aquarium for shark diving is in Sydney, Melbourne, and the Sunshine Coast. In Sydney, you can even feed the sharks. You can also look for the best and adventurous places for shark diving in Australia and enjoy the warm, crystal clear water.

When you go for a shark dive you can see various shark species like Grey Nurse Sharks, Leopard Sharks, Whitetip Reef Sharks, Shovel Nosed Sharks, Whaler Sharks, and Wobbegongs Sharks. For shark diving, you do not have to be a certified and experienced diver.
If you have not dived before, you have to join the shark dive course first. A shark dive in an aquarium is a great experience. A totally different experience is Great White Shark diving. Even though it is possible to go on a Great White Shark diving expedition from Sydney, the main departure points are Adelaide and Port Lincoln in South Australia.
Most of the Great White Shark diving trips will be heading for the Neptune Islands (around 70 kilometers south-east of Port Lincoln). Here you will see an array of wildlife, including many bird species, thousands of fur seals, dolphins and the rare Australian sea lion.
But the main attraction is, of course, the Great White Shark cage diving. The area is the natural feeding ground of the Great White Shark, which makes it a fantastic experience. Normally you will start the cage diving in the surface cages. The submersible cage dives usually wait until the second day. Both divers and non-divers can do the expedition.
If you are not a certified diver, you just stay in the surface cage. The best time for Great White Shark diving is around February and from late May through to October.
