Victor Harbor, South Australia
Imagine the adrenalin rush … a Southern Bluefin Tuna whipping past you like a freight train in the pristine waters of Victor Harbor, gently plucking a pilchard from your fingers on its way through.
Or the tranquillity that comes from swimming lazily with hundreds of sea creatures or watching them shimmy past the windows of an underwater observatory.
Imagine no longer – join us for the experience of a lifetime at the Oceanic Victor in-sea aquarium at Victor Harbor, just one hour’s drive south of Adelaide on the spectacular Fleurieu Peninsula.
Get in the water and get up close and personal with magnificent Southern Bluefin Tuna – one of the fastest fish in the sea! Or settle in to our undersea observatory and enjoy the spectacle of Australia’s marine life – all in the safety of a purpose built enclosure in the lee of uninhabited Granite Island.
Oceanic Victor offers 2 hours of fun learning and excitement for the whole family, adventure seekers and those wanting to explore the world beneath the waves.
Did you know?
Southern Bluefin Tuna (Thunnus maccoyii) are among the fastest fish in the ocean. They’ve been clocked at up to 76 kmh (or 47 mph)!
Awesome experience - they are soo big and fast and up so close. Swimming and feeding them by hand was amazing. Our kids 10 and twins aged 8 LOVED it and was the main highlight of our trip to the area and they are still raving about how "epic" it was!!!! Crew were lovely and helpful and interacted with the kids too which made it extra special for them. Can't recommend enough.
Great experience our whole family loved it from age 8 to 60. Definitely a must do experience. Fun and interactive.

Awesome day!! So cool to be able to get up close to some amazing fish!! So many things to do, great tour, highly recommended.
Just wow! What an experience! We loved seeing these speedy fish up close. Staff were welcoming, friendly, very helpful and their knowledge exceptional - some are marine biologists so you know you are getting the right information. We touched a shark and giant crab, fed the tuna, and watch the feeding frenzy from below deck through the portholes.
We had a fantastic time! An amazing experience swimming amongst the tuna. With no experience in snorkeling it was still easy. The tuna are so close but never seem to make contact. Beautiful to see up close. The Oceanic Victor crew were so welcoming and down to earth. We would highly recommend for children and adults confident in swimming. My nephew is 8 and did well.
Had an awesome time with Steve on the Fairy Penguin excursion we must have seen at least 20 penguins heard them mating and calling to each other as they came ashore. Steve knew exactly where to find them and at what time they would be coming ashore in the certain areas he was a wealth of information regarding there life style and food. We were also fortunate enough to see some dolphins in the bay Thanks again Steve!
I went with my boyfriend and his mother and we were so impressed! We had a fantastic time swimming with the fish and getting to touch their shark and see the king crabs! Staff were outstanding and very accommodating! They seemed pleased with everyone having a great time! Highly recommend!
20 of us swam with the tuna's for our staff show and it was absolutely awesome, what a great experience The staff and crew were professional, accomodating and so passionate. Thank you so much for a top day out in Victor

This was a great experience for both my wife and me. She is not a water person at all but I have been diving for over 40 years. The wonderfully supportive crew got my wife into the water in a way she felt safe - she had a great time. At the same time there was plenty to keep me interested. Would recommend this to anyone.
Absolutely loved it, more then enough time in the water hand feeding the tuna and great staff as well. Would highly recommend it, I’ll be going back again for sure
Had the most amazing time taking my nephew swimming with the tuna. We got to hand feed them in the water which was awesome they are so fast. We also patted & held Port Jackson sharks & starfish. The staff were fantastic so knowledgeable, friendly & helpful. Must do next time your in Victor Harbor. Will def go again!
Absolutely loved swimming with the Tuna. My son and I did the swim but my wife chose not too but the crew on the pontoon looked after her and answered all her questions. Great family day and can’t wait to do it again
Amazing experience, exceptional day. Staff are extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Loved it! Kids loved it! Will be back again.
