Shark Reef Aquarium offers a unique, interactive experience as you get up close and personal with over 2,000 aquatic animals. As you venture into the tunnel aquarium and explore the dramatically lit 1.3 million gallon shipwreck environment, you’ll come face-to-face with 15 species of sharks, the deadly golden crocodile, the endangered sea turtles, and a wide variety of other species of eerie and exotic predators native to the depths of the tropical oceans around the world.
Your journey starts with a tour of the Dangerous Reef, where you can touch and feed harmless stingrays. But if you’re feeling a bit bolder, you can even venture further and put your fear of sharks to the test. From the safety of an underwater viewing area, you can watch as five species of sharks – the delicate nurse, the slow-moving sand, the wily blacktip, the sweeping white tip, and the ferocious hammerhead – swim around you barely a few feet away.
