Shark Reef Details
Come face-to-face with some of the earth's most fascinating creatures in America's only predator-based aquarium and exhibit. See sharks of all kinds, along with sawfish, giant rays, green sea turtles, piranha, moon jellies and the rare golden crocodiles. In all, there are over 2,000 animals in 1.6 million gallons of seawater.

For a more up-close experience, indulge in one of the Animal Encounters programs at the Shark Reef. These remarkable programs allow guests to go behind the scenes with in-house Aquarists to feed sharks, sting rays or sea turtles.

Guests who are dive certified can take the experience one step further with the Dive with Sharks Program. This unique exhibit gives divers the chance to swim with a higher concentration of exotic sharks than they'd ever find in the wild. There are over 30 sharks, including Sandtiger, Sandbar and White Tip Reef Sharks. This experience, which lasts 3 to 4 hours, includes a guided tour of the aquarium, exhibit and equipment orientation with a dive guide, showers and dressing, video of the dive, and up to four admissions for guests to view the dive.
