Lagoon Aquarium

The most colourful dive we have on offer, with over 1500 fish to see. The uShaka Marine World aquarium guarantees optimum conditions everyday of the year.

We do all our PADI course confined sessions in this aquarium which makes your Open Water Course an absolute pleasure. The maximum depth is 4m and what makes the lagoon especially great is that you don’t get to see even 20% of it when standing at the aquarium viewing.

Equipment rental is included in the price.

Inside the tank there is also a viewing window through which you can see all the juvenile sharks and large groupers. On Wednesdays and Fridays you can join in on our night dive which is quite different to the day time dives.

What can we see on the dive?

Smooth houndshark, Barred flagtails, Lemonfish, Spotted grunter, Striped grunter, Bigeye stumpnose, Orbicular batfish, Natal moonies, Emperor angelfish, Semicircle angelfish, Old woman angelfish, Racoon butterflyfish, Longnose butterflyfish, Sergeant major, Clown coris, Bird wrasse, Striped cleaner wrasse, Checkerboard wrasse, Powder blue surgeon, Brown surgeon, Convict surgeon, Palette surgeon, Orangespine unicornfish, Spotted unicornfish, Moorish idol, Clown triggerfish and Shortspine porcupine fish to name some of the amazing fish. The tank is flood lit which creates an amazing atmosphere.

Bring your camera along to capture the awesome memories, day or night. No flashes are allowed inside the aquarium though, so remember your red filters. All scuba equipment is included in the dive price but you’re welcome to use your own.

Open Ocean Aquarium

The Ray tank is home to the open ocean (or pelagic) fish. The tank has a maximum depth of 5m and holds over 1.5 million liters of water. This tank will leave you in absolute wonderment.

As you enter the tank you feel the current pushing you. You drop down and immediately schools of large fish head in you direction. Out at sea the action is never this close!

During the dive you’ll have large pompano and kingfish swarming above your head. With the small school of Eastern little tuna darting from side to side at speed.

The White spotted eagle rays seem really tame as they often follow you around the tank. All the kids in the aquarium get so excited when they realise there are divers in the tank and start waving at you vigorously.

The waving starts turns to laughter as they see that one of the White spotted eagle rays has decided to search you for food and is now nibbling at your mask or arm. Being so close to these animals is some of the best therapeutic treatment out there today. A truly amazing dive!

Only certified divers are allowed to dive in this tank.
