At Ocean Park Aquarium, every customer joins a fully qualified marine scientist who takes you on an interactive, fun and educational tour of the entire aquarium, including the shark feeding. Enhance your knowledge and test ours! With every guide a qualified marine scientist, from a variety of specialties, we can enhance your aquarium experience by not only explaining where the creatures live, but why they do so.
After over 15 years of collecting feedback on our tours, the #1 favourite part of the tour is the guides! So come and meet us!
Ed studied marine science following a childhood exploring the extensive WA coastline with a nature-loving family. Following fisheries and aquaculture work experience in Shark Bay, Ed became ingrained in the early beginnings of Ocean Park and eventually bought the business from the establishing owners. Ed has a very high quality standard and is known to make 10 coffees until he gets the right one. When Ed isn’t at Ocean Park, you’ll find him fishing, diving and kite surfing around Shark Bay.
John first came to Ocean Park in 2006 and fell in love – with his wife, Shark Bay and the marine world in general. He gave up a life of physics to become a PADI SCUBA diving instructor and has worked all over the world including Indonesia, Egypt, Mexico, and of course the Ningaloo Reef before returning to Ocean Park to develop Shark Bay Dive & Marine Safaris and Shark Bay 4WD Tours.
Luke is a graduate of the university of life with a PhD from the school of hard knocks. The "Honey Badger" of Shark Bay will deliver a 4WD experience that is authentically Australian. A Freo boy born and bred, Luke loves nothing more than 4WD'ing, fishing and living the dream up here in Shark Bay. His passion for the area makes him the ideal guide to explore Shark Bay World Heritage Area with.
Kat is a triple threat - Diver, 4WD guide and expert Marine Scientist. Her passion and enthusiasm are second to none. Her "woo-sack" is always full! When Kat isn't giving tours in the aquarium she loves nothing more than exploring Shark Bay both above and below the water. You can find her either cruising the bay in her boat "Gotcha" or jumping over the dunes in her new car, "Franger" (pronounced frainjer).
Katie is one of the hardest working friendly ladies you'll find. One of her favourite tasks is giving our rescue turtles a full spa treatment :)
Molly comes to us all the way from SA. She has a heart of gold and recently organised our Ocean Park based collection for those affected by the bushfires. Good on ya Molly!
Apparently we only employ people whose name begins with "K". After finishing the season in Broome, Kat has joined the team at Ocean Park to spread her love of the marine environment. She has pretty good luck as she saw a whale shark on her first day out on the boat!
Ash is also one of the world famous Monkey Mia Dolphin Rangers (the yellow one I think)
Ocean Park is situated 8km south of Denham and approximately 30km from Monkey Mia on Shark Bay Road. Located on Western Australia’s rugged and spectacular west coast, Ocean Park is nearly the most western most point of Australia.Get Driving directions
