Experience animal conservation in action at Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary and take an active part in our rescue, breed and protect program.
We successfully breed some of our incredible local species; we are passionate about rescue, nursing animals back to health and releasing them back into the wild; and we endeavour to protect their natural habitats.
Check out the Penguin Cove, where you can discover our own colony of Manly's iconic Little Penguins and their importance to the shores of Manly. Join in our interactive talks and feeding demonstrations and be charmed by 'Sea Biscuit', our rescued Green Sea Turtle, or amazed by our huge sharks and stingrays. See Murdoch and Freckles, two captive bred Grey Nurse Sharks, who have been brought together to continue our successful breeding program. Meet the team and journey through our waters as you learn how you can protect the marine environment. Get hands-on and discover more about our local environment at the interactive rockpool, where you can touch a shark egg or hold a crab.
Or for the more daring, try the ultimate interactive experience, and take the plunge with Shark Dive Xtreme! For the opportunity of a lifetime, put on SCUBA gear and enter the habitats of our deep water friends and come face to face with sharks, turtles and stingrays. This amazing experience is suitable for first time and experienced divers. Bookings are essential to guarantee your dive. Located just 200m from Manly Wharf, Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary will inspire you to become a passionate protector of marine animals.
