Shark Encounter

In Shipwreck Alley, you will meet Thelma and Louise, our nurse sharks, and all their friends who share the lower mangroves habitat. You will learn about shark species and travel behind the scenes to participate in food preparation for your interaction. Then you will meet with staff and be directed to the shallow water platform, to be briefed on the basics of behavior modification and the importance of husbandry. You may assist training staff with moving sharks to new locations and feeding them - it's a true encounter as you see and hear nurse sharks suck food into their mouths and feel the roughness of their skin.

Price:     $75
Participants must be age eight and above. Because the participant has to kneel or sit in a small area, on a moving platform, for 15 to 20 minutes, maximum weight is 250 Lbs.

The program includes a photo. Total program time 1 Hour.
With a minimum of 24 hours advance notice, changes are permitted based on availability by calling reservations at 727-441-1790 x 0.
