Shark Encounter

No cages, no barriers, just you, a guide, and a dozen of the most awesome sharks found anywhere in the Caribbean! Our Shark Encounter program takes you on a spine-tingling, pulse pounding adventure into the world of the shark. Your adventure begins with a briefing on sharks by a staff biologist including the truths, myths, habits and behaviors of these ancient creatures. After donning your mask, snorkel, and weight belt (for stability) you will climb into the Shark Shallows Pool home to over a dozen juvenile lemon, blacktip, and nurse sharks.


Accompanied by your guide you will observe sharks, barracudas, and other marine life from as close as two feet! You will then be led to a demonstration pool where you can touch a baby nurse shark. Participants must be a minimum of 4′ 6″ tall. This adventure is available daily at 9:00 am, 12:00 pm and 3:00 pm.
