Life beneath the waves
Explore Oceanic Victor

Looking for a truly memorable, exhilarating and family friendly adventure? The much-loved Victor Harbor destination, Granite Island is the home to the only in-sea aquarium in the world where you can swim with the Southern Bluefin Tuna.

The team of marine biologists facilitate two hour tours where ocean lovers can explore life beneath the waves. There is so much to do in and out of the water and many ways to interact with the diverse marine life!

Explore the Oceanic Victor platform
Learn from​ the​ team of marine biologists

The exclusive tours are perfect for all ages as there are multiple levels of engagement offered.

Granite Island is a fifteen-minute walk from Victor Harbor's esplanade, or take a walk back in time and catch the century-old horse-drawn tram.

Swim with the Southern Bluefin Tuna

From here, your journey to the in-sea aquarium is via a luxury catamaran. On arrival at the floating platform, you will be fitted with warm wetsuits, gloves, booties, snorkels and masks.

Then the excitement begins with the opportunity to swim, hand-feed and interact with magnificent Southern Bluefin Tuna, the Ferraris of the ocean.

Cuddle a Port Jackson Shark

As part of the two-hour experience, you will also get up close to marine species indigenous to the marine park, including the Port Jackson sharks who love a cuddle and are referred to as the puppy dogs of the sea!

You'll also discover other unique and vibrant marine creatures like large starfish, sea urchins and much more.

Starfish in our Touch Tank

The in-sea aquarium also has a licensed bar on the platform offering cold drinks, including South Australian beer, wine and ciders.

The tour is safe and still suitable for all swim levels. You can enjoy getting up close and personal with creatures in the touch tanks or if you prefer to stay dry, venture into the underwater observatory and view life beneath the waves.

Transported via luxury catamaran

Oceanic Victor is just under an hour and a half's scenic drive south of Adelaide and is the perfect day's trip from the city. Equally, a restful stopover on the Melbourne to Adelaide self-drive journey. Tours depart daily (minimum numbers required) all year round.

The pickup and drop off point is located nearby The Island Cafe, which offers an innovative menu comprised of old classics, new favourites and premium, exclusively sourced South Australian Seafood.

Create your own Oceanic Victor adventure by incorporating a Guided Nature & Penguin Tour or opt for the Island Discovery Package (Aquarium Swim & Seafood Tasting Platter) or Ultimate Oceanic Experience.

Oceanic Victor and The Island Cafe combine the best of land and sea with these packages, inviting guests to explore the platform, then relax on the deck of the cafe. The Island Discovery Package includes a tasting platter bringing together the best of South Australian seafood to sample. The Ultimate Discovery Package is a longer lunch style where, 'no-one leaves hungry'!

This package includes the seafood tasting platter, choice of three tasting-style dishes from the popular cafe menu, a refreshing beverage, homemade dessert or slice and hot drink to finish! For groups of more than five, enjoy a 'feed-me' style menu.

South Australia enjoys some of the cleanest and most prist​ine oceans in the world, hosting a greater diversity of marine life than the Great Barrier Reef. Immerse yourself ​in South Australia's ocean waters at Oceanic Victor.
