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 two 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. Hot and cold drinks available for purchase on the platform.

Head to our newly opened Island Cafe, located adjacent to the Oceanic Victor office, before or after your tour to enjoy a full seasonal menu using the best, fresh South Australian produce. Kids menus are available!

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.
Dive into the clear, clean waters of Encounter Bay with Oceanic Victor and you’ll experience:
• The adrenaline rush … dress in a wetsuit, dive into the aquarium and experience Southern Bluefin Tuna whipping past you like a Ferrari!
• The tranquillity that comes from swimming lazily with hundreds of sea creatures or watching them pass you eye to eye in an underwater observatory.
• Life up close and personal with a range of sea creatures in a Touch Tank.
