Sea Life's Dining Under the Sea
Tuck into a three-course meal — and two hours of drinks — while surrounded by marine creatures.
Now that Melbourne is reopening, you're probably keen to make a splash. Yes, watching fish, penguins and plenty of other marine creatures literally splash about definitely counts. And that's exactly what's on offer at Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium — which isn't back in its official capacity just yet, but is hosting luxe underwater lunches and dinners.
Available from on Fridays and Saturdays from November 6, Sea Life's private dining packages will be on offer during the day for the first time in the venue's history, running from 12–3pm. If you'd prefer an evening session, they're on from 6–8.45pm.
While you're there, you'll escape into an underwater world, feast your way through a spread of food and drinks, and soak in the intimate vibe. You can choose from one of seven locations, too, so prepare to pick between the shark tunnel, the marine life-filled mermaid garden, the shipwreck theatre section of the oceanarium and the new jellyfish exhibit. Or, you could opt for the seahorse pier, watch penguins in the Antarctica zone or sit above a five-metre-long saltwater crocodile.
As well as a three-course meal and two hours of beverages — including sparkling, red and white wines, plus beer — you'll also get a 45-minute tour of the place.
The whole experience doesn't come cheap, surprisingly, with a minimum spend in place of $2000 for ten people — so $200 a pop. If you're keen on a smaller booking, you can put your name on a waitlist.
