Dine in the Deep

Thu 4th June, 2020 – Wed 5th August, 2020
Sea Life Melbourne
King Street, Melbourne
Price: From $300
Go underwater at Sea Life Aquarium (with up to nine mates) for the ultimate socially distanced dinner. An after-hours self-guided tour is included.

If eating dinner surrounded by strangers isn’t your bag in the coronavirus era, how do you feel about sharks? The recently reopened Sea Life Aquarium has one of the least traditional private dining experiences in town.

Groups of (up to) 10 can sit down for dinner in the jaw-dropping Shark Tunnel, the Seahorse Pier, or surrounded by swarms of colourful jellyfish in the Ocean Invaders exhibit.

Start with bread and olives, then move onto roasted chicken, eye fillet or a Middle Eastern chickpea-and-lentil tagine, before finishing on petit fours. (No seafood, unsurprisingly.) You’ll also get a two-hour booze package with beer and wine, and a cocktail on arrival.

A 45-minute self-guided tour of the entire aquarium – after hours – is also included in the experience.

Bookings must be made at least three days in advance. Email functions@melbourneaquarium.com.au to secure your spot.
