Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay
The Shark Reef Aquarium is a predator-themed aquarium that houses animals that are considered predators in their natural environments. Adrienne Rowland, director of Shark Reef Aquarium operations, believes we should also educate visitors about why these animals are important and why they must be protected.
A visit to the Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay, which houses 2,000 aquatic creatures and is unlike any other Las Vegas attraction for visitors, is a must. You’ll have a chance to swim with sharks, sea dragons, nurse sharks, stingrays, and other aquatic animals while walking across glass tunnels. The fact that you can view an even greater variety of uncommon sharks just adds to the thrill.
The aquarium may be seen in about an hour. Endangered sea turtles, enormous rays, and other aquatic creatures might slide by their noses as families view the tanks.
The Undersea Explorer VR Experience is at Mandalay Bay’s Shark Reef Aquarium and is open all year. You might take a photo in a shark cage and watch sharks from across the world live in real-time before you begin. You’ll also discover about humpback whale anatomy and songs, as well as other fascinating things
To begin your underwater journey, you’ll put on a headset while sitting in a motion chair. You’ll join humpback whale mother and their newborn calves on a 360-degree three-dimensional journey beneath the ocean’s surface. Tiger Beach is home to hammerhead sharks that may be viewed in the seas of the Bahamas.
Families with little ones who want to experience virtual reality should be aware that the films are for children aged five and up. Smaller youngsters must be accompanied by an adult and will need to rotate with one if they wish to participate in the VR environment.
The Mandalay Group’s Shark Reef Aquarium, which can hold up to 6 million gallons of water and houses more than one hundred species of sharks and other aquatic animals, provides visitors with unusual and engrossing experiences.
Divers with prior experience may book a guided dive in a tank that houses over 30 species of sharks. There are also extra charges for animal encounters, which include a guided tour by a resident expert and assistance in feeding the chosen animal before the encounter.
In addition, the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino is a partner of Discovery Communications Group in operating the Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay, a municipal aquarium near Las Vegas, NV. The aquarium, which is located in Vancouver, British Columbia, and has a floor area of 95,000 square feet (8,800 m2), includes rays, sharks, reptiles, marine invertebrates, and fish. A shark tunnel was also constructed as part of the project. The reef was created in conjunction with the Vancouver Aquarium.
