Oceanic Victor Granite Island, Victor Harbor, Experience life below the waves, swim with the Ferraris of the Ocean!
Take a 10 minute walk to the ‘wild side’ across the historic causeway linking Victor Harbor and Granite Island for a range of wildlife experiences. Oceanic Victor offers hours of fun, learning and excitement for the whole family, adventure seekers and those wanting to experience life beneath the waves.
A quick trip on our luxurious catamaran will deliver you to the Oceanic Victor in-sea aquarium sheltered in the lee of Granite Island. Once you arrive you will be fitted out in a warm wetsuit with mask, booties and gloves, and then into the water to swim with the Southern Bluefin Tuna.
If you don’t want to get wet, you may still feed our Tuna or venture below the surface in our glass-sided underwater viewing area. There are many other species of local fish to view and we have a touch tank for the little people to enjoy. A range of soft drinks and premium South Australian beverages are available from the licensed bar.
Oceanic Victor’s aquarium provides a safe and exciting marine environment for those who otherwise may never have a chance to experience the fascinating and diverse marine world and to hopefully inspire our next generation to appreciate and respect it’s eco systems. We encourage our guests to look after what we have through hands-on experience and to be thrilled at being up close and personal with these incredible fish. Most of all, it’s fun.
