AMAZING!!! Our Host, Noah, was very informative, friendly and deeply caring of the Sharks and Rays. He made the experience enjoyable and educational. The Sharks and Rays are friendly and interactive and loves to be petted! Enjoyable for families with children of all ages as well as adults/teens. It was exciting to be sitting in the knee high water with the encounter with the Zebra Shark and having the rays and other sharks swim by and interact at the same time. All the staff are very friendly and caring. Cannot praise Noah enough for his dedication to the Sharks and Rays and made it a memorable experience.
A unique experience getting up close and personal with these beautiful marine creatures. The rays were lively and seemed not to mind being pet. The stars of the show were definitely the tawny nurse sharks though, as it's hard not to be awed by their intimidating yet calm presence! Overall, really enjoyed our adventure.
We were not sure what to expect but it was an incredibly educational and exciting experience. Patting stingrays and sharks is quite a unique adventure and we highly recommend it
Knowledgeable and friendly staff - great for kids. Thought we would stay there only 14-30mins and we didn’t leave for 3 hours
It was amazing. We got to interact with all the animals. Well worth a visit
